Puzzle No. 409 : Point-to-Next or Search-9 Sudoku [Daily League]

Firstly, PDF!

Week 23.

Also, IPC Practice puzzles will be posted on this and another blog shortly, hopefully by tonight, but latest by tomorrow.

Not much to say about this hybrid, except that it might be a bit tricky. Note the part in bold.

Rules –

Follow Sudoku rules. Additionally, each clue will describe exactly one of these two behaviors.

1. If digit ‘n’ is placed in a cell with arrow, digit ‘n+1′ must be placed in one of the cells pointed by the arrow.

2. The arrow points at the 9 in that row or column and the number in the cell with the arrow is the distance from the cell to the 9.

Both restrictions cannot apply for the same arrow.

Enjoy!

Puzzle No. 295,296 : A Nurikabe Loop and a Point To Next Sudoku

Daily League Update

Killer pair by Fred yesterday.

Week 6 PDF.

The Point To Next below is my contribution for today. It might be tricky.

The Nurikabe Loop is just for the sake of it. Its not that tricky.

I’ll be sharing one of my puzzle sets tomorrow, so stay tuned 😛

Also, Puzzle Marathon 2013 is this weekend!

Rules –

For 295 : The numbers give the size of islands as in a Nurikabe puzzle. Instead of the stream being a wall of shaded cells, it is a continuous loop going through all cells except the ones with islands. The no 2×2 rule is waived.

For 296 : Follow regular Sudoku rules. Additionally, if digit ‘n’ is placed in a cell with arrow, digit ‘n+1’ must be placed in one of the cells pointed by the arrow.

Enjoy!
