This is the outline of what will be in Archive Part L; I'll start adding entries when I've finished Part K.

This forum has slowed down, it's a year since I posted the outline for Archive Part K, but it's good that Assassins and other interesting puzzles continue to be posted; there are also some puzzles in the Other Variants forum which users of the Killer Puzzles forum may like to try.


This is Part L of the Assassin Forum Archive, continuing to include puzzles posted on this site and provide easy links to the puzzles and threads. Please read the first part of the Archive Index to get the background to this archive including Mike (mhparker)'s original post about ratings.

Puzzle rating table, with links to archive entries and puzzle threads in this forum.
The links are to archive entries, where they have been posted, or to the puzzle threads (* before puzzle name). Page links will be added when new pages are started for this archive.

Please note that some links may be temporarily incorrect while I'm in the process of adding puzzle entries to this archive.

Abbreviations used in Rating Table:
E = Easy
H = Hard
W = wellbeback
Score = SudokuSolver v3.6.3 score
These are the scores posted by the puzzle maker in the puzzle thread and/or in the
Assassin Schedule thread, except where indicated by * when I calculated the score using SudokuSolver

Some of the selected quotes in the puzzle entries have been edited to remove "spoilers"; the full rating comments are included with the walkthroughs. In some cases the puzzle makers gave hints; these are included in tiny text in the selected quotes.

Many thanks to Ed for providing the format for the rating tables, including links to the puzzle threads; I think it was a great idea that in the rating tables he provided separate columns for Afmob and myself, the most regular posters of walkthroughs.

If you solve any of these puzzles and decide that there aren't enough walkthroughs for that puzzle or, better still, that you've found an interesting way to solve it which hasn't been posted, please feel free to post your walkthrough in the puzzle thread. Your comments and walkthrough will then be added to this archive.
