1. Basics: +5G1, +7G3

2. JE2(1234)G89, H6, J2

Eliminations -19H6, -4J1, -9H45

The puzzle is in hardest ones (S.E. 10.4). The JE doesn't solve it alone but I'd not say it doesn't help at all. At that point it is rated S.E. 9.4. Andrew's solver "ROOKS". My own solver solves it, with a number of complex nets (that I will not post)

Another way to use the JE: directed T&E. Just try the possible pairs of true base digits:

+12G89 =>contradiction (with basics)

+13G89 =>contradiction (with basics + 1 AIC)

14 is an incompatible base pair (1 and 4 can be true only in target J2)

=>1 is a false base digit; -1G89, -1J2, -1H45

S.E. rating is now 9.0 and the puzzle is solved by a sequence of AIC's and krakens (also solved by Andrew's solver)

After eliminating the obvious - using a 'probability' approach C1 = 4, G4 = 8 will solve

5G1 7G3

With DFC(Digit Forcing Chains) only,

6E1(∵6D1 contra.)

8D1(∵8C1 contra.)

4C1(∵4C9 contra.)

4A7(∵4A9 contra.)

Then to the end.

This puzzle is SE 10.4, but it's difficult.

Exocet does not help with this puzzle.
