Friday Puzzles #122

Wow – an entry on time? Who’d have thought it?

This Sudoku puzzle felt like more of a medium last night, but I think it’s probably like most of my other Sudoku puzzles, disappointingly easy. Anyway, I think this is a great grid pattern and it solves very cleanly indeed.

Good luck to anyone coming down to London tomorrow for the Times “Su Doku” championship – I shall be doing my best to not make any stupid mistakes, again.

There are also a multitude of other competitions going on this weekend too, this time on the interwebs. Maybe I’ll be able to squeeze some time in this weekend to replace my printer cartridge? Maybe I’ll be sick of the sight of any sort of 9×9 grid. Anyhow, keep tabs on all things competitive puzzling via this link:

All that remains to say is enjoy – and if you are feeling competitive, try for a sub 3 minute solve. If you are feeling really competitive, below 2 should also be doable.

  1. 2’07. I guess I wasn’t in a “really” competitive mood. More seriously, I didn’t found this puzzle “disappointingly easy”, thanks to the interesting solving path induced by the pattern. A nice easy-medium classic puzzle, which is a quite hard result to achieve.
