I enjoyed that one - took a leap of faith on my part that my logic was correct (felt correct, but couldn't prove it was correct). Once past that point it fell pretty easy. Still can't do Hards without greens though.
yeah--not enough time. will restart later.
done... used greens, but I don't think I needed to
I went green and am not making headway. Weird.
I always find it interesting how some people find certain puzzles dead easy and others find them very hard.
Well, I find it a lot more interesting when I'm the one who thinks a puzzle is dead easy. Right now, I'm frustrated.
Note to self: The little "Bookmarks" icon in Safari's link bar does not just load a window to manage bookmarks. It actually moves away from the page you are on. In short, save a checkpoint before using it. Will restart later when I am not banging my head on the wall.
OH NO, Andy!!! how frustrating!
i've had it before where i've been ALMOST done with a hard or an expert, and that's when the kitties decide to walk across your lap, stepping on the laptop and hitting the button that does the refresh
love the cats to death, but oh man does that tick me off!
well...this is definitely not the easy i was hoping for today...i'll have to come back to this one later. hope your retry goes more smoothly for you, andy!
Needed greens and guesses. not happy about that!
a hidden pair in a square fooled me for a long time
doesn't need guesses, tho
7 filled, struggling.
I've found several pairs and a quad, still no relief...
There's another quad, surely that will help
6 filled, went green...still stuck...brain still on vacation
I'm moving now. Second quad did it :-)
Hi yul, good one today...
I hope so :)
I don't feel very strong today. I don't won't a long struggle but I shall try.
Done, finally. Needed greens.
yul, are you going slow just to make me feel better?
Darn, I've been so stuck at 7 for hours...
omg i'm not looking forvard to it
it looks evil. so green. I think i have to do it an easy vay
A hidden triple !!!
yul, I told you it was a good one today.
I do believe you spreadeagle
finally finished after having to restart. made a mistake during the degreening
have a nice day everybody
Finally done. Very tricky today. Found a hidden triple and then a hidden pair and that broke it open. Used greens and stuff.
going at it again.
done, with greens and a guess
Difficulty score 42. That was horrible. Theoretically, you only need some hidden and naked pairs. I didn't see any that I could use! Solved it with the Swiss Army Knife of Sudoku, Alternating Inference Chains.
done...with plenty of greenage and 3 wrong guesses...ouf...have a great day all !
arg... broke down and guessed... sigh
sometimes sandbox, there's not much else one can do ... when time is limited...
drwho, are you there?
done with auto g+r. either saw a pair or made a lucky guess. going back to puzzle this out for a while.
hmm... was a lucky guess, i guess. scanraid shows a (rather obvious) triple that i didn't see on my own. drat.
