Center has to be 1. In case we put 7 there then there will be no place left to put 7 in 6th Box.

The following sudoku is from CSOC 63 PB.I couldn't understand the English version of the rules given in the example image.I assumed it to be a clone sudoku and started solving like that in contest.However, it quickly broke after that.


Can someone clarify what the rules imply ?

Also, can the admin kindly specify alternate websites for uploading images here ? Earlier, I used to upload from tinypic which seems to have shut down now.
The images posted above are screenshots and are too big and uncomfortable looking.

CSOC 63 P13's rule:
if there is two same shape, for example, two vertical domino shape, there will be 4 numbers in these 2 shapes:
A        C
B        D
and
if A>B, and then the result is C>D at the same time
if A<B, and then the result is C<D at the same time
if C>D, and then the result is A>B at the same time
if C<D, and then the result is A<B at the same time
the same inequality between the four numbers in two shapes with corresponding position

Thanks a lot Xiao Wei for the clarification ! I finished the sudoku now.It is certainly an interesting variant and I will look forward to seeing more of it in future.

Little Killer from LMD portal by 'Realshaggy'

This sudoku is pure evil.I tried everything that I usually encounter in Little Killer Sudokus from totalling clues,seeing min-max possibilities, clue interaction etc., but this sudoku just yielded nothing.I have been trying for the past week or so to complete this without success.It's kind of demotivating in a way that after so many years of solving sudoku, there are still some that I am unable to be complete. Kindly someone share the break-in for this ' psycho little killer '.

If you add up the clues on the top and bottom rows, you get 369. Adding up the clues in the left and right gives 327. The difference between the two is 42.

Observe that the arrows on the left and right point to 6 cells which are not pointed to by the arrows on top and bottom (with minimum sum 3*(1+2)=9), and similarly the arrows on top and bottom point to 6 cells not pointed to by arrows on the left and right (maximum sum 3*(8+9)=51). The difference between them must be 42, and since the maximum difference between them is 42, we can establish a few 12 and 89 pairs.

Thanks a lot ! I could complete it with your pointer.
