A Pure Swordfish Collection

Everything about Sudoku that doesn't fit in one of the other sections

I haven't checked all of the examples here, but I haven't seen any that show the SF candidate in all nine intersections. I've seen many examples with it in 8 or 6 intersections, but none with 9. Do they exist, or have I just not come across one?

can't say if the present Topic contains any 333 Swordfish --
but there is a separate Topic on 333/4444 Fish

The following have been also selected from the Patterns Games 14-51 & are not entirely pure (with a possible cross-over with the above list). They have either a swordfish first move or an x-wing in the 1st first placement

Another good thing about solving several isomorphs of the same puzzle is exposing RED HERRINGS ....

The following pure Swordfish puzzles (Posted & Listed) need only 1 swordfish to solve .... Solved with singles only there will be no Red herrings .... Add Locked candidates,subsets & x-wing, then (if you're unlucky) the 1st puzzle MAY need 3 swordfish to solve & the rest MAY need 2 swordfish to solve:

Re: A Pure Swordfish Collection

Hi tarek,

as per your request in the patterns game, here is a list of swordfish 3.8/3.8/3.8's I had in cache.

Not 100% sure if they are all swordfish as i had a small rating/puzzle match-up glitch at one point...

None of them are isomorphs of each other but didn't check them against others in this thread.

They were prevalent in game 0125

Thanks BryanL,

The puzzles are automatically vetted before adding to the list. So don't worry about it. Feel free to post more puzzles whenever you have any.

My pleasure...

I really liked those 3 jellyfish puzzles in the other thread - amazing.

Not sure if it was the last patterns game or the one before, but there were some puzzles with 3 and I think one with 4 swordfish! Not sure of their ratings though...

Some of them are not pure swordfish, but feel free to try to solve them without using swordfish, seriously.
