Remember that you can solve the puzzles from the League online on the Sudokucup Guest League page with a 24h delay.

This is also Ex-Championship but, I changed it a little to make it easier for the Championship. This is the original hard version. There’s a few challenging spots.

Rules – Follow regular Sudoku rules. Additionally, some thermometer shapes are in the grid; digits must be strictly increasing from the round bulb to the flat end.

Rated – Hard.

Enjoy!

Puzzle No. 397 : Thermo-Killer Sudoku [Daily League]

First, PDFs!

Week 18.

Week 19.

Today’s Sudoku combines the increasing numbers logic of a Thermo Sudoku with the addition logic of a Killer Sudoku. It isn’t that difficult but you still need to get used to working with both together. I could perhaps have put a thermometer figure with a sum on the corner, but chose this layout for 2 reasons – Its easier to draw the image this way, and the fact that it enables having just normal Killer cages too.

Rules – Follow regular Sudoku rules. Additionally, the number at the top left of a cage gives the sum of the numbers within the cage. Numbers cannot repeat within a cage. Also, in cages with a shaded cell, the numbers increase from the shaded cell to the ends of the cage.

Enjoy!
