### another type of sudoku..

i invented this within a few minuts (actually an hour :P) and think this would be a challenging new sudoku, the rules are the same as sudoku, but only 5 numbers, i will post my first puzzle:

1...5
..5..
.4.5.
.5...
...23

try to solve it, i dare ya

and post any other puzzle that has to do like this one, in a different order

Is there any restraints other than rows & columns? If not, there are 5 different solutions (and thus deemed an invalid puzzle):

Code: Select all
`12345235143415245231514231234523514342514513251423123454351234251251345142313245425313415225314514231324532514243514513251423`

Note if only rows/columns are restraints, they should not be called "Sudokus", only "Latin Square Puzzles" or some fancy name mentioned by dukuso which I've forgotten...

At least you could have made a diagonal puzzle...

I believe latin squares are older than sudoku are they not?

Why not invent binary sudoku while you're at it?
