I think in Galaxy Greenflint they probably do hexadecimal zeroes-allowed Sudoku on a 16x16 board with 4x4 boxes. They'd find our version childishly simple.

Or maybe the last three in a row (the zeroeth, first, and second -- or the first, second, and third, if you count them the same way you count centuries). So in the years 3001-6000, the universe will be female-dominated.

I put pencil marks for the top band (top three rows) in the top margin of the newspaper. In my paper there's enough white space in various locations below to fit the pencil marks for the middle and bottom bands. If your newspaper is configured differently, you may prefer to put the top two bands above and the bottom band below.

In that case, I'd do what I do with the Numbrix puzzle in the Sunday Parade. Put it on my copier and magnify it to 300%.
