Der Tagesspiegel, Berlin

Der Tagesspiegel of Berlin starting printing Sudoku puzzles last Sunday (31st July). The first puzzles were accompanied by an introductory article which mentioned Wayne Gould and the computer program, but did not mention Pappocom nor did it mention the website. They currently print two puzzles a day, classed "leicht" and "mittel" (easy and medium); they will add difficult ones later.

The puzzles are not symmetrically laid out, and are copyright Michael Mepham. I must therefore assume that these are what the Times books call "pale imitations", and may later require the "suck-it-and-see" method (also known as bifurcation, guesswork or cheating, depending on your point of view). The puzzles printed this week were, however, fairly straightforward.
