## Q20

Hi guys !

Ok this one is strating to frustrate me
It's actually the last one of the 240s that I have to solved, I've tried to think out of the box, to jump from one cell to another without great succes !

Could someone tell me, if he or she juges that it's not too much, if the digits of the cross are sufficient to solve this one or if all the sudoku is needed ?

I think i've tried about 20 "possibilities" and I don't want to solve it just by putting numerous guess, i'd like to understand what i'm supposed to do

Tom.

2. I think I just got very lucky, but I was able to solve 12-20 fairly quickly. The Sudoku wasn't too bad, and based on everyone's comments I created a list of the top 10 patterns that might fit what the question is asking for. One of those was correct, although there's really no reason that I can figure out why one would be better than the others.

I can get the answer, but I am stuck on the question. I know the "word" sounds obscure, but can someone give me a wee nudge in the right direction.

THanks

4. Totally stumped on the Sudoku!(Both) Would someone be kinds enough to PM us a hint to nudge us in the right direction? Would be most appreciated! THANK YOU!

OK - got the "word". Not a word really, though I recognize what it is. Could this be a clue to something else?

Ok. As I understand this question, the 4 is in a farthest corner?

Thanks,

Regarding question 10 - am I seeing occasional double pairings of spaces?

I believe you may have something there.

All gone a bit quiet in here recently. Guess everyone's either furiously working out the maps or have just got stuck with little idea how to proceed - like me!!!

Has anyone had any luck with the words-list at the end of Ch12? Have tried many things that have seemed to link back to various parts of the book but nothing conclusive. Seems that Ch12 is a little different a) by having this list that doesn't appear to relate to anything, and b) the archive link in the log book stays active even after answering the question correctly - connected?

Roll on a few more clues from Ron!

There most definitely is a solve for this. Keep working at it! This is one that frustrated me for a while too!
