Hey! I have a question. Recently, a girl I work with gave me a Sudoku puzzle from our local newspaper that she was unable to solve. She knew that I liked doing them so I looked at it and I'm convinced that it cannot be solved using basics and/or the 'standard' advanced methods including X-wings, XY-wings, XYZ-wings, or UR's. Is it okay if I list it here so you experts can take a look at it? I'm wondering if one of you can find something that I've overlooked. I'm pretty sure they misprinted it because even if it does have a solution, their most difficult puzzles are easier than your 'Hard' ones and they never publish any as difficult as your 'VH'. Thanks, Don.

Sure. Enter it into the Draw/Play grid (I'm assuming you know how to use it) and post the puzzle, either the original or your partially completed grid, in the Other Puzzles sub-forum.

Hi Marty, Okay, I just posted it on the 'Other Puzzles' Discussion page like you mentioned. It wasn't obvious to me how to enter a Draw/Play grid so I just entered the numbers with zeros representing the blank squares. Let me know what you think! Thanks, Don.
