NEW Killer Variant - (Not for beginners)

Postby mikejapan » Tue Apr 10, 2007 5:29 am

I call this variant a KILLER/killer (or K2)

There are two PS Insane rated killers in one grid.

First solve the little killer.

Then transfer the numbers from the little killer cells r4c4/r4c6/r5c5/r6c4/r6c6 into the big KILLER (See below)

So, two tricky killers for the price of one - what a bargain!

Here's another K2.

First solve the little killer, the transfer all the 1s to the big KILLER and solve it.

This is a good one.

In this K2, tranfer the 4s in the top middle nonet and the middle nonet from the little killer to the big KILLER.

Nobody has commented but there have been 300 views so here's another one.

There is no connection between the killers so either one can be done first.

Hi Mike

They say variety is the spice of life so I thought I'd have a look at these.

From the first puzzle it appears that the inner grid is solvable independantly of the outer grid, is this always the case or might some of these require feedback. Perhaps you were just getting us warmed up.

All the best,

Glyn

Hi Glyn

In all the K2s, the inner grid (little killer) is solvable independantly of the big grid (big killer). However, the big killer can't be solved without a specified transfer of numbers from the finished little killer (apart from #4 which doesn't need any transfer of numbers).

For answers/comments/hints on these K2s or other killers, check out the following link to Djape's site.

For every puzzle I post on this forum I post (maybe) 5 on Djape's site.
