This is the Challenge, This is A Superior Level Puzzle (Needs one or more out of Triples or X-wings to solve). In the abscence of Intersections AND doubles, can you spot the Fruitful X-wing which ultimately is not needed to solve :scratch: ?

Centre Grid is Vanilla & the 4 Satellite Grids are Windoku

WARNING: Numerous Intersections Promotes this to the MASTER level

Line Format:
Code:
...8.1...6.......7.5.............9......12...1.9.............1............7......
.....4..7..1......7.......5......47..6...........8...........8..5.2..........1...
....1...........6...............8..........5....5.6.........6....1...............
.....1.....9...........2...6..8.............19.........7.............52....4.....
...6...........1........6..2............8...44...............9..92.........3.....


[EDIT: The word AND instead of OR]

Very cool, tarek!

Now, can someone tell me how to take the windoku blocks OUT of the center grid in JSudoku or SudokuSolver?

In JSudoku, alt-right-click on the cell and "Remove: g3:w..." for all 9 windows of the center grid (incl. the hidden ones).

Thank you, Jean-Christophe! Unfortunately, now the puzzles will have to wait until my return, as I should already be packing, and leaving within the hour. :sun:

The answer regarding Kazaguruma #02 is that Hidden Doubles win over intersections as using them 1st would lead to a shorter solution path.

I'll give a detailed rundown of techniques for each by the end of the week.

Regarding the challenge of Kazaguruma #03: I will give a hint regarding that hopefully by the end of today
