Shaolin 2x7 not clueless

Postby Hajime » Sun Apr 22, 2018 11:50 am

A symmetric Shaolin with all overlapping areas clueless. But also 2 middle bands have both 7 adjacent clueless boxes.
1 Solution of course and box<->column/row and hidden/naked pairs/triples techniques are needed.

Thank you! I'm looking forward to it!

Which clueless nonets form the additional grid? That isn't clear to me. (Normally, it is the center nonet of each of 9 grids that form the extra grid.)

This time no additional grid. I think I misused the word "Clueless"; I mean "empty boxes".

Solved with only given grids, so no additional grid needed to solve this.

So then, technically not a clueless puzzle, as invented by Ruud.
