Could you please take a look at the one of the examples from the strategy page: X-Wing Strategy. When I load X-Wing example1: Load Example into the solver, it looks nothing like the printed example. I entered the printed example into the solver and then compared it with the loaded example from the strategy page. It looks to me as if one is the inverse of the other.

Here's what I mean: X-Wing 1 - X-WIng 2

thanks,

Thanks for pointing it out and have a great Christmas

Load Sudoku: CLICK TO LOADCould you please explain the strategy you use to solve the first step when there is more than one candidate for a cell in a square.

Your answer come up as 9 in row 5 column 3.

But 9 is also possible in this square in rows 4 and 5 of column 1.

I also cannot follow how you allocate 3 to the next solution.

Any help really appreciated

Regards

Zyg

Have a look on this page.

Thinking about MULTI-COLOURING-of -Simple- chains :

Is it possible to have MULTI-COLOURED- ALTERNAING- INFERENCE- CHAINS or does that simply reduce to 3D Medusa ?

So you covered cases of:

Canidate ON/OFF (Digit Forcing Chains)

Canidate ON (Nishio Forcing Chains)

So what technique is (if any)

Canidate OFF

or am I missing a technique ?

Load Sudoku: CLICK TO LOADUsing the grader, the puzzle is rated moderate 79 but it contains an X-cycle which I have not yet got my head around. How does it rate at only moderate?

Thanks
