    Default Sudoku Puzzles

    Whats with the "0" on the front of the 3D Sukoku puzzle - never saw that in a solution before. 1-9 yes, but "0"?

    not participating in this puzzle quest myself but have seen a sudoku with a zero before.

    not sure this is what you are looking for since I cannot see the puzzle you are talking about. but here is what I know about sudoku's that include a zero. here is the link the puzzle is about half way down the page: Math Games:Sudoku Variations


    Figure 9. 0 to 9 Number Place (Zero Tuu Nain Nanpure). Nanpure Fan #52 2004-10.
    In 0 to 9 Number Place, each row, column, and region has all 10 digits. Some cells contain two digits, and those are marked. The same puzzle where the two-digit cells didn't get marked would probably be much more difficult than a regular Sudoku puzzle.

    Default 3D Sudoku

    Finally finished the 3D. Wow - took a long time. Could have done it with a solver, but opted to crank it manually to see if anything was amiss.

    Now to figure out how it relates to anything...

    Haven't started it yet, but what was with the zeros? I don't think it was like the puzzle j15bell showed as there are no split cells. I thought maybe you solved it normally and then later there would be a question like "What are the digits in the spaces marked with a zero?" Am I on the right track?

    That would be my guess. Once I got it completed, I have started to notice some interesting things about how he set this up and the symmetry he talks about in the guidebook.

    Hi everyone, I am new to the book and new to this forum and was wondering whether it is possible to solve the 3D-Sudoku without the guidebook? (I only have the Quest book so far). Are there specific instructions in the guidebook that are needed to solve this sudoku?

    best regards

    No extra book is needed - just have to grind it out. The guidebook helps in the fact that it has some relational tables to make it easier and faster, and ensure that the edge numbers get carried over properly.

    good luck

    Default CH13 Sudoku

    There is a zero in the middle. Do I keep this? I cannot find anything about this on the sponsor site nor in the helper book.

    I just completed the 3D Sudoku puzzle. I just worked around the 0, since I didn't know what to do with it, and I was able to solve the whole thing without any issue. I am not sure what to do with the 0 now, since it appears that it could be replaced with a single number (1-9) and still maintain the integrity of all of the grids.

    I did the same thing also. This way if it can be changed quickly without much difficulty. EN
