The November edition of LMI Beginners’ Sudoku Contest is here! Its started earlier today, and will go on for a week as is the norm. With last month’s format changes, you can submit the solutions any time over the week and still get half the points at least. This time’s author is Fred Stalder, and its a really fun set including new variants like Outside and No Knight Step, in addition to Classics and 2 of last month’s variants, Toroidal and Consecutive.

Follow regular Yajilin rules. Instead of the number-arrow clue structure, the clues point in the directions (orthogonally as well as diagonally) where the shaded cells are closest.
