Me too.

Wasn't as difficult as it appeared at first.

This puzzle has "Solve" confused.

And I keep getting double entries.

Can someone give me a clue?

Basic moves get you to here:
Code:
+----------------+----------------+----------------+
| 3    2    8    | 5    4    17   | 9    6    17   |
| 45   6    7    | 139  2    139  | 8    34   15   |
| 9    14   15   | 68   37   68   | 2    34   57   |
+----------------+----------------+----------------+
| 7    349  2    | 348  1    3458 | 46   59   69   |
| 8    134  6    | 347  9    3457 | 47   157  2    |
| 45   149  15   | 2    6    47   | 3    179  8    |
+----------------+----------------+----------------+
| 2    5    9    | 1367 37   1367 | 67   8    4    |
| 1    7    3    | 469  8    469  | 5    2    69   |
| 6    8    4    | 79   5    2    | 1    79   3    |
+----------------+----------------+----------------+

If you need an explanation of how any cell is solved, just ask. (I do not use draw / play.)

Then, I imagine draw / play will fail. The needed technique is not in its repertoire.

Earl,

The clue lies in Keith's oblique comment in his second post in this thread. Smile

If it doesn't register and you want a direct answer, just ask and I'm sure someone will respond.

A colorful solution isn't necessary. One fairly well-known technique solves it.

Maybe you could ask Dr. Green Mr. Green and Dr. Ross Embarassed to help you...
