what seperates the different levels of sudoku puzzles?

Postby Kunegochu » Mon Jan 28, 2008 4:54 am

i was wondering what difficulty should i do. i can do hidden singles and doubles, as well as naked singles and doubles. i can do the xwing and can force chains. i probably cant do the hard+ puzzles with just this but can i do regular hard puzzles? also what techniques do people use in order to solve the sudoku so fast? thanks in advance.

It's not clear exactly what your question is. If you get your sudokus from newspapers, magazines or puzzle books, the likelihood is you won't need forcing chains, most of the time you won't even need x-wings. All that matters really is that you're enjoying solving the puzzles. If you get your puzzles from a particular source and they're not challenging enough for you, then look elsewhere.

As for the question of speed, it's mostly down to practice, but also different people will prefer different solving strategies and will be able to employ them faster. So you'll have to find out for yourself what strategies suit you!
