Looking at the potential 56 DP in boxes 47: either r67c3=2 or r6c1=8. Common outcome; r2c8=3.

A short xy-chain...
Code:
xy-chain ; (3=7)r2c8 - (7=2)r5c8 - (2=1)r5c3 - (1=3)r9c3 ; r2c3<>3

Have I messed up a AMUG again? I considered r67c3=5 as part of the SIS since they are not an explicit AMUG digit for those two cells.

, I think Keith would call your xy-chain a xy-wing with pseudocell (23)r58c3.

As usual, I also look for reliable anp()s and found this one.......

anp(34=5)r21c3-(5=8)r3c2-(8=2)r3c8-r5c8=(2-1)r5c3=(1-3)r8c3; r8c3<>3=1

This path uses a bit of my original AMUG and also part of Peter's xy-chain.

It looks like you've taken the BUG-Lite approach. For the MUG, digits <256> are allowed in all six cells.

Stumbled across this after reading Luke's solution and reviewing output from my solver.

Code:

Have I messed up a AMUG again? I considered r67c3=5 as part of the SIS since they are not an explicit AMUG digit for those two cells.

Ted

Iíve messed up many a MUG, but I donít think you have here.

DPs are fascinating, and itís interesting this one was seen by different players for its UR, BUG-Lite, or MUG possibilities.

I saw it as a MUG:
Code:
+------------------+
| .     .    .     |
| .     .    .     |     
| 56    25   256   |     
+------------------+
| 56    25   256   |     
| .     .    .     |     
| .     .    .     |     
+------------------+

Öor a composite of overlapping URs:
Code:
+------------------+
| .     .    .     |
| .     .    .     |     
| 56    .    56    |     
+------------------+
| 56    .    56    |   
| .     .    .     |     
| .     .    .     |     
+------------------+
Code:
+------------------+
| .     .    .     |
| .     .    .     |     
| .     25   25    |     
+------------------+
| .     25   25    |     
| .     .    .     |     
| .     .    .     |     
+------------------+

Only the 8s prevent the MUG, so it was a quick and chainless kill.
