re: # 126 # 20

    so why did i post a puzzle which would surely get trumped?
    ( and not a rarity either )

      2.....3.....5...1.....7.9.4.6.9.....7...8.2....5..3.9...61......5...2...3...4...1 # Pat # 126 # 20
    Code: Select all
     2 . . | . . . | 3 . .
     . . . | 5 . . | . 1 .
     . . . | . 7 . | 9 . 4
    -------+-------+------
     . 6 . | 9 . . | . . .
     7 . . | . 8 . | 2 . .
     . . 5 | . . 3 | . 9 .
    -------+-------+------
     . . 6 | 1 . . | . . .
     . 5 . | . . 2 | . . .
     3 . . | . 4 . | . . 1


    because
    i enjoyed solving it

    needs at least 3 moves
    ( probably 4, but i have no proof )

    that's not very common
    ( at this level of difficulty )

    *
    if we had software capable of determining the
    minimum number of moves needed for solving the puzzle,
    this could make a nice game---
