Help wanted on Mindbending Killer

Postby Chat Chang » Fri Apr 07, 2006 2:24 am

After staring at it for 3 days, i admit i need some help.:) )
I would appreciate a full description of the solving process, since i obviously need to lear some tric i don't know of.
Since i know the basic and some advanced trics, i have no problem solving up to hard, but this is out of my league.

Her is the txt in Perfect Sudoku format.

Since this is obviously formatted in DJ's Perfect Sudoku, I think you might have more luck asking for help on his forum. Otherwise could you post the image rather than the txt format.

Chat Chang,

Perfect Sudoku (the new unreleased version) requires one trial&error attempt to solve this one (it reduces R1C9 to {35} and then it tries one of them - 3 works, 5 doesn't). So I guess I'm not of much help to you.

Perhaps JC's solver can solve it without t&e? JC and me haven't really tested our solvers to see which solves more puzzles without t&e.

Alternately, you can ask in my forum some of the experts like udosuk or Shai - they are often your best chance.

By the way, where did this puzzle appear in?

I found it in the archives of for date feb/8/2006...It's the weekly mindbender nr 5.

So, I obviously have the solution from the site also. But can't find the trics to solve it myself. I don't like T&E. And would prefer to solve it without excessively taking notes on paper. By pure logic. But wonder if that's possible.
