clueless too!

For fans of Killer Sudoku, Samurai Sudoku and other variants

clueless too!

Postby 1to9only » Sat May 19, 2018 3:08 pm

I've tweaked my gattai-maker to spit out Clueless Specials and Explosions...

Note that in this Clueless Explosion, the 10th clueless sudoku itself is an Explosion (Center Dot). I think I like it this way, although I may make this 10th clueless sudoku plain vanilla flavored later!

I love them! I just wish I knew how to generate puzzles (other than plain vanilla ones as on the Patterns Game).
