Multiple Solutions

Postby FrankD » Tue Aug 23, 2022 6:42 pm

This is my first post so I don't know if I'm going about this the correct way.

I have a concern about puzzles that have multiple solutions (invalid?).
I just got the Dell "Original Expert Sudoku" and tried the 3 puzzles at the beginning of the Expert section.
2 of the 3 were "ambiguous" in that there were two valid solutions (I tried both).
I find this extremely frustrating because I don't know when a puzzle is invalid or I just haven't figured it out yet.
I'm wasting time on invalid puzzles.

Being a big source of puzzles I would expect Dell to do better.

Is there any way to put pressure on Dell to validate their puzzles?
Is there a good source of verified valid puzzles?
A list of good sources in this forum would be great.

Thanks
FrankD

Thanks.
On your w page if I select grid size XL (bad eyesight) the numbers also enlarge, but if I select printable version and select XL the grid enlarges but the numbers are tiny.
How do I get the numbers to also enlarge like the web page?
Thanks
