gatta-3 (triple, treble) puzzles

Postby 1to9only » Tue Nov 05, 2019 12:04 pm

I have not created any gattais for a while, so decided to create some new ones recently - these are gattai-3 puzzles, also named triple or treble - the overlapping sudokus are depicted below:
Code: Select all

Each subgrid has an SE rating to give a rough indication of the grid difficulty.
