The Equal Product 9x9 is tricky. I think if you do your homework well, it is a Medium-difficulty sudoku. It uses a lot of deductions from the crosses.


I definitely agree. I solved it like a dilettante and had to face a lot of contradictions while solving because I was too lazy to really take it in a logical way, that's why I wasn't efficient on this one.

 Of the puzzles you solved/attempted, how well did the point values reflect the difficulty? Most puzzles were worth too much or too little


How on earth are the small puzzles worth that many points? I solved quite a few of them quite a bit faster than I solved the classics.
