NEW form of Sudoku

Postby Guest » Sat Mar 11, 2006 1:11 pm

Hi there, people.

I have invented a new form of sudoku (see sig) and the solving techniques it requires are sublime! I would love feedback (please contact me on the address on the site).

It is a real challenge on not very dissimilar to sudoku!

Hmmm, my sig did not appear:

sniqe, could you add these questions to your poll:

"Do you think that this thread was mis-placed in the advanced techniques forum?"

"Do you agree that this form of Sudoku variant is already well known & well documented elsewhere?"

Off topic?

Tarek,

I agree that the post was slightly off topic... but actually, the solving techniques for this form of sudoku is something that I would like to discus here, so it can claim relevance!

I did not know that somebody had beaten me to it! Could you provide me any evidence for this statement?

Cheers,

Andy

Not so new idea...

DOH!

Well, I can certainly claim that I created it myself without knowing that others were also doing it... and my invention predated the posts that you show links to, so I'm still going to claim that I created it... but it is disheartening that others are already onto the idea...

Thanks for getting back to me and posting the links, anyway.

I'd still like to discuss here the solving techniques for this puzzle which are, I maintain, fundamentally different from those used for traditional sudoku.

Cheers,
Andy

Unfortunately sniqe, you are doing what spammers do.......

You have posted the poll now 3 times in defferent forums on these forums, this one came after I replied to 2 of them,

I'm glad that ab has echoed my thoughts which I posted in your 2 previous SIMILAR polls.

I think everybody got the idea now, but feel free to post it again to cement our impression..

The date of the posts is irrelevant. This variant has been continuously published in several monthly Japanese number place magazines for *decades*.

It is not your invention.

You are spamming the group. This post has nothing to do with advanced techniques. Do not make the same post it more than one place -- I suggest "sudoku variants".

You joined the forum YESTERDAY, have posted 7 times, spamming from area to area and presume to tell *us* what is and isn't proper.

Further, if I were to claim that I invented the bicycle, even after being told that bicycles already exist, what would you think of me? Why should we think different of you?


I won't be visiting your site.

I consider this the underlying problem.:(

at least as far as concerns the multi spam aspect...

I have been very busy this week at the World Sudoku Champs and haven't had time to do a daily trawl through the Forums. Apologies. Should be OK from now on.
