metro friday 1st december, usually hard

Postby ab » Sat Dec 02, 2006 3:45 pm

the metro newspaper, in the uk, usually publishes a hard puzzle on a Friday. Yesterday's one was easy though:
Code: Select all
 . . 3 | . . . | 8 . 9
 . . . | . 7 . | . 4 .
 5 . . | . . 1 | . . 6
 ------+-------+------
 . 9 . | . 1 7 | 2 . .
 4 . . | . 6 . | . . .
 . . 7 | 4 8 . | . 3 .
 ------+-------+------
 8 . . | 7 . . | . . 3
 . 3 . | . 2 . | . . .
 2 . 6 | . . . | 5 . .

However it's also not symmetric. Take away the 4 in R5C1 and you get a much better puzzle!
