Everything about Sudoku that doesn't fit in one of the other sections

The "Almost Lost" thread

Postby Ruud » Wed Mar 22, 2006 7:48 pm

I quickly added this thread to save the sudokus that did not qualify as Superior. They are beautiful and it would be a shame to lose them.

I've actually changed the rules of Superiors to include all the puzzles that would require more than 2 doubles to solve....

Your list needs to be updated with numerous puzzles from the superior puzzle that were posted & missed the list.

I'll try to post them here:D
