Box orientation on a (x*y)^2 board, x != y

Postby sw478 » Thu Mar 11, 2021 8:15 am

Hi everyone,

I've been writing a program for sudoku and I was wondering if there was a name/classification for sudoku boards such as this (2*3)^2 board,
where the 2*3 boxes can be arranged in either orientation and still be valid

2 6 | 5 3 | 1 4
3 4 | 1 2 | 5 6
1 5 | 6 4 | 2 3
-----------------
4 2 | 3 1 | 6 5
6 3 | 2 5 | 4 1
5 1 | 4 6 | 3 2

2 6 5 | 3 1 4
3 4 1 | 2 5 6
---------------
1 5 6 | 4 2 3
4 2 3 | 1 6 5
---------------
6 3 2 | 5 4 1
5 1 4 | 6 3 2

I get that there are many other sudokus variants, but I'm not sure if one like this exists already.

Hello sw478, Welcome to the Forum, and Good Luck with your program!

Check this thread: Sukaku6x6Explainer

Peter Ritmeester at https://sixysudoku.com created Sixy Sudoku which combines both 2x3 and 3x2 blocks in the same puzzle.

There is a SixyExplainer here: SixyExplainer
