#1 Use basic strategies to get a working board , and apply bi-location tool.
#2 Choose cell A4{2458] - bi-location /tri-location for 5. Need to form,
progressively, a 4- element bi-location cell set {AC4FJ3}. Forcing the
various 1-cell to 4-cell values gives contradictions and inconclusions;
only use basic strategies and force the only 1-cell to 4-cell inconclusive values until AC4FJ3 = {4,2,7,5} which gives a solution.N.B: there are other 4-element bi-location cell sets which also give the same solution.
#3 Using this solution,with basic strategies, no 1-cell or 2-cell solutions
were found; the following 3-cell solutions: ABC4 =(4,7,2), AB4C5 =
(4,7,1), A4BC5 = (4,8,1).

I'm pleased to write that I have some more unsolvables from David Filmer. Many thanks David. The standard is now very high, but I'll continue to add a few of my own as well if the generator can find any. Share and Enjoy


Each week a new 'unsolvable' will be published and the previous will be accessible here from this archive section. If you like very tough puzzles, these are for you.
Share and Enjoy
