When I play puzzles other than what gets posted here, I usually play Vanhegans. Normally, I'd like to play more Menneskes, but I tend to avoid them because they're so hard to replace, i.e., it takes about 20 clicks to get a puzzle I want.

Yes, but I do not know how to electronically capture (copy) a VanHegan. So, they are much harder to share than Menneskes.

I don't usually share the Vanhegans, I just print them, four to a page, eight to a sheet.

If you view the source page containing the Vanhegan puzzle, you'll find a line near the bottom that looks like this:

saveState( "clues", "-4-82-7---8--4--965-29-68----3---9-271-----848-9---3----43-71-919--5--3---8-19-2-" );

If you install jsudoku http://jcbonsai.free.fr/sudoku/ you can load the daily Menneske puzzles directly ( using fetch ) and print them or whatever.

Danny, thank you for the tip on the Vanhegans. It works for me, now I have to remember!

The Menneske puzzles can easily be copied and pasted into Sudoku Susser and, I believe, Nataraj' format tool.

Another approach is SudoCue, which has an option to retrieve assorted puzzles including VanHegan.
