It took me ages to find a puzzle that did not need givens in the overlap areas - so while I was at it I also avoided clues in any (visible) window.

Not too hard but plenty of windoku work - no fishes.

If you allow givens in the overlaps you could get a pretty small set of givens.

Would love to see how few givens it requires. Don't feel shy to post it just because some others disallow givens in the overlapping area! ;)

I've got a 26 givens but two of the outer grids are not human solvable so I'm working on it still.

Has someone got this puzzle in code form already, before I go to the trouble?

Hatman, the image link seems to be dead. Is there anywhere else you can upload it?

I'm currently in Nigeria and it is not on my laptop. When I get back to England in about a month I'll check and PM you if I find it.

That would be wonderful! Thank you so much! I'm not in any big hurry, but I would very much like to get it eventually.

Sorry

Just been back there for a short visit and did not have time to do any Sudoku stuff.

Hopefully I'll remember next time.
