Hello,

Ya, would like to ask for Your help.

My question would be, if some of Sudokas in "CHALLENGER" section are supposedly set up with "no solution"?

Specifically, have found one which seems to have no any solution... even deductions in "SUDOKU SOLVER" on your pages have not provided me any?
Does it mean that this particularly Sudoku is one of those which makes you to take chance and pick up one of the offered possibilities in one of the cells, at certain point of solving, and just to try to go with it?

Specifically i am talking about Sudoku number 309 from - Totally Sudoku, Summer 2011.

Thank You and one more time appreciate Your help and time,

Krusinka Vit

I don't know your specific puzzle, Vit, but every puzzle like this that I've seen has a logical end. I was rather put off by sudoku upon first trying them, but then I got a little hand-held Sudoku machine. I can't say for certain, but I'd wager that I've solved more than 10,000 puzzles in this genre on the game or on paper, and while there are some hard ones, they all can be beaten with deductive reasoning.


Think of it like fileting a carcass... Sometimes you have to probe the meat with your keen intellect before you find the stroke that separates the fat from the prize. Then, the sharp mind discovers the fulcrum of the puzzle that allows the rest to fall in it's proper place. I can tell you from experience that probing for that spot takes time, but once you tip the balance, the cascade to the solution is swift.

Hey, if any of you Sudoku fans would like to see a couple of pertinent on-line comic strips, drop me a private message, letting me know of your e-mail
address. I have a couple of links I can send you (actually, one is a link to an old Garfield comic, on the Garfield website that a friend of mine works for,
and the other is today's 2/24/12 comic whose name I forget but I'll find it, where I can send you an e-card from the DailyInk a/k/a King Features website).

I assume links and e-cards won't work with the PennyDellPuzzles forum, but if anyone wants those links, let me know.

Hello and thank You for your answer.....

well than it is the only one idea on my mind how to figure out if this sudoku is solvable or not and that is to forward this sudoku on You so You may try to solve it??? :-) If You were interested????.....

Because the one I am talking about really does not seem to lead anywhere????...at least to me!

So either way.......thank You one more time for Your afford!

Feel free to, Krusinka, and I apologize for not calling you that originally. I just read the screen name, not your first name. I feel like I've been rude.

Not sure how you can send it, but there are PMs here on the board if you'd like to give it a try. Personal messages. Just click my name, and I believe you'll find the proper way to do so.

Good to meet you.

TDHO.

I got your PM, vit, and clicked the link, but it requires me to log in and stuff, and my Pacer game is now on. I'll give it a try the next day or two and will reply in your PM once I have a look. Fair enough?

Love your accent, by the way, heheh.

Sorry for my lateness in getting back to you, Vit. I'm going to call you Vit, because it's shorter and I'm lazy, heheh.

I tried to log on to that link you gave above, but it kept asking me for the name of the book or title or some such... I don't know. I gave up. I'd still love to help you, but I'm at a loss as to how.

Feel free to PM me again if you have another idea.
