Hi

The recent decision to make the Hard and Very Hard puzzles more difficult has made me go away and read up on the X wing etc. It's rekindled my interest in Sudoku. I'm wondering, are there any more "upgrades" like this in the pipeline?

I think you will need to wait for Sam to comment on this, but unless my memory is playing tricks, I seem to recall that he was going to step it up again at some point and that he was going to use strong links in the solving repertoire.......... so I think I will sign off and do a bit more 'revision'.

Nice thing about this is that the more answers to questions you get, the easier the puzzle gets. If you don't know a couple of answers, maybe that doesn't matter -- you'll just have to work a bit harder with the Sudoku.

Hi Sam

I can see how that would distract, a nice variation on a classic Sudoku. Meant to say as well that the new Draw/Play page is great, and reduces the environmental impact of my obsession nicely Laughing

I haven't attempted to solve the puzz;e yet but I am almost finished with the clues.
I don't get the reference to Paper for D4 and in I3 Ifound two references to "wheels on my wagon" one with Burt Bacharach and one by Fluke.
I guess I'll try to solve the puzzle with these two missing links.
