Tarek's Bank Holiday 1108 Sumo Special

Postby tarek » Sun Jul 10, 2011 5:38 pm

I had this puzzle for some time now. It is a variant of Sumo (Gattai-13).
Grids 1, 3, 11 & 13 are Sudoku-X
Grids 2, 6, 8 & 12 are Windoku
Grids 4, 5, 9 & 10 are Asterisk Sudoku
Grid 7 is a Clover-X (Asterisk Windoku X)
It shouldn't need more than doubles to solve.
I will be posting the solution on Aug 29th 2011 (bank holiday in England)

tarek, I hope you're still around. I'm giving this one another go.

I also gave it to a lady I met at the dentist's office the other day, and gave her a link to Richard's forum. She was very excited to see this puzzle, and said that she would be sharing it with her son as well. I warned her that pencil marks would be required, and she's familiar with those.
