Friday Puzzles #234
So you may have noticed that a lot of my Sudoku feature 24 givens, which is a good symmetric number lending itself well to aesthetically pleasing designs, whilst providing plenty of flexibility to get a unique solution out. You have to be a little more ingenious as you start dropping the number of givens, so I thought this week might be a nice opportunity to try 22. Although you perhaps have to be a little more wary of the patterns you pick, it seems 22 isn't so much of a problem, and this week's puzzle isn't so hard either. And perhaps it tells you something about my standards that I've chosen to publish this puzzle here. Enjoy!
