Sum Number Place - new form of puzzle

For fans of Killer Sudoku, Samurai Sudoku and other variants
Paul - I'm gutted. I may have brought this on myself but you totally underestimate me. To think that I would derive even the slightest of thrills from your failures!

First killer with <>=

Sorry to lower the tone amongst all you high flyers but have struggled a bot with the first grid and eventually won through the long chain of connections in the middle three nonets. Thought the rest would be a roll but the triple cage in nonet 7 I think shold be greater than not equal to the double starting in the same nonet.

Agree?

If not would some kind person post a solution so I can see where I have gone wrong?

Thanks

I hadn't seen these ones before--yet another ingenious variant--

Haven't even tried them yet!

Nate, I think the geometric ones from Ms Misawa are similar to what's so called "Dusumoh", a google search will let you easily find more about it.

As for hasher I can assure you Ms Misawa's puzzles are 100% accurate and you must have made a mistake somewhere.

Here's the solution (select the area below with your cursor):
2 9 5 7 6 4 1 3 8
1 6 7 5 8 3 4 2 9
3 8 4 1 2 9 5 6 7
9 3 1 6 5 8 7 4 2
8 7 6 3 4 2 9 1 5
4 5 2 9 7 1 6 8 3
7 2 3 4 1 5 8 9 6
5 4 9 8 3 6 2 7 1
6 1 8 2 9 7 3 5 4

Thanks r.e.s for the trick!

Thanks for the helpful response Udosok, Christmas day, too.

Now to try the next one - much harder I think.

Happy New Year
