Friday Puzzles #214

More daily league sudoku - but perhaps you might be able to see some other puzzle types from me elsewhere sometime soon.  More on this to come, hopefully.

Don't forget you can play online with a day's delay at!

This week is a continuation of last week's idea.  I think this is a variant with lots and lots of potential.  This isn't a particular beautiful puzzle to look at, or to solve, but at least it should provide something of a challenge.  This certainly took a while to test solve last night! 

Oh and the rules: consecutive terms of the sequence to be place on the marked line should differ by at most 2.  Which means they can differ by 0, 1 or 2.  Enjoy!

    I’m not sure how politically correct it is these days but it seems to describe the solving mechanic nicely.

    I’m sure I saw something similar very recently, but it used a completely different name.
