Has anyone ever done this puzzle

For fans of Killer Sudoku, Samurai Sudoku and other variants

Have done Sumo Sudokus before, but not that particular one.

Somewhere out there, a Gattai purist is having a heart attack because the overlapping regions have given numbers. Most of the time that is avoided when constructing such a puzzle.


edit: As I expected, this was a very easy Sumo puzzle.

Sorry, I don't have books for this kind of puzzle. Have never even attempted that kind of puzzle. Seen X-Factor Variations and Circle Sudokus, but not this type.

I solved it last night it really is not as hard as it looked at first.

This DOAG is probably more of a challenge:)

There are 85 overlapping Sudokus. The number of overlapping regions is gross.
