Perhaps the best way of thinking about things is this: if these were the puzzles that got the chop, how good are the ones that survived going to be?
#088 Consecutive Sudoku – rated easy/10 points(Digits in adjacent cells may be consecutive if and only if a bar between the cells is present)
#089 Deficit Sudoku – rated easy/10 points(Place the digits 1-9 exactly once in every row and column, and at most once in the 10 marked 8-cell regions.)

P.S. Earlier versions of the consecutive had a bar missing, this one does not!
