Friday Puzzles #192

So, the League of Extraordinary Ladies and Gentlemen is really beginning to take off (although it must be added we only have one lady so far).  We have compiled a rather nice looking document with all the Week 1 puzzles here, although I'd recommend downloading the file from google docs before printing it out.  I hope you'll agree, dearest reader, that it looks very nice!

Here's a brief recap of how things are going.

Week 1:
Thursday (Non-consecutive, Rishi)
Friday (Anti-knight, me)
Saturday (Palindrome, Prasanna)
Sunday (Thermo, Seungjae) (I'm not sure if you'll need to join the facebook group to see this or not, but Seungjae doesn't run a blog so this is the only location you'll find it, other than the PDF...)

Week 2:
Monday (Clone, Fred)
Tuesday (Windoku, Prasanna)
Wednesday (Arrow, Bastien)
Thursday (No Donkey Step, Rishi)

If you'd like to join us, just check the facebook group.  I think you'll need to request to be added or something, but someone will get onto that fairly quickly.  After that we have a google spreadsheet where you can enter in your scores.  I think you probably need to get in touch with Rishi to see it though, but again that shouldn't take too long to get sorted out.

Anyhow, I'd suggest it's well worth joining in the fun.  If you are competitive the league already features some of the world's very best solvers, and if you aren't the puzzles are still probably the best sudoku you'll find on the internet.  Bastien's puzzle this Wednesday is in particular a work of art.

And so onto my contribution for Week 2.  There have been a lot of nice Sudoku variants that have been posted thus far, so I thought I'd keep things simple and throw in a classic.  I reckon (with the help of scanraid) this one just about scores a medium, although I suspect we'll once again be seeing the quickest times of the week on this puzzle.  And I'm going to shut up now.  Enjoy!

  1. Hi, thank you for sharing. Are you going to publish all your sudokus in pdf? I am not at facebook and I like your job.

  2. We will, yes, but there will be a week's delay, whilst we wait for everyone's times to come in and to collate the pdf. So expect to see Week 3's puzzle and Week 2's PDF on Friday...

  3. Where would the location of the pdf be?here in your blog?or somewhere else..i would prefer do all the sudokus together..Thnks in advance

    1. It'll be hosted on google docs somewhere - I'll put the link up on my blog each Friday.
