Another clue
The big puzzle has this format, with only the 1,2 or 3 in B9 [ Thor's hammer pattern - so its ED=11+]
Code: Select all
+---+---+---+
|.45|.78|9..|
|6.7|4..|...|
|89.|5..|4..|
+---+---+---+
|.76|.4.|...|
|5..|79.|.46|
|4..|..5|...|
+---+---+---+
|9.8|...|...|
|...|.8.|..1|
|...|.6.|.32|
+---+---+---+ ED=2.6/1.2/1.2

Yes i would say !
Though am trying to generate it from scratch but I dont have a fast way to exclude the clues in B1-B8 and not getting more than 9.2.
Im wondering if there are hard puzzles with this format that we have missed in some of the patterns game games ?
