Hi, the hodoku next hint is a w-wing. What is another technique to solve this puzzle?? Hidden pair? Is it possible in hoduko to show another hint to solve this puzzle?

Hi Gerold,

Try disabling w-wing from hoduko technique set. That would take Hodoku to the technique(s) listed after that to try.

Hoduko like many other solvers uses a technique list which are exhausted systematically before moving to the next step.

Just go to the "all possible steps" tab and click "find all steps". Every possibility for which Hodoku is programmed will be shown.
