This post continues a review of Will Shortz’ Hard Sudoku, v.1. with the sixth of ten pre-selected puzzles. Each one is resolved at the basic level. The detailed review requires time and patience, but its value is the detailed examples of Sysudoku Basic, an entertaining and efficient way to prepare the grid for advanced methods. The starting point for reading this blog is the Guide, a network of pages accessed from the menu bar above.
A tough line marking of Will Shortz’ Hard Sudoku v.1 Beware 16 ends with a hidden single.
