Sudoku Variants

Sudoku variants are adaptations of the classic puzzles. More constraints are placed on the placement of numbers in a given box. More constraints should make solving the puzzle easier but variants with the exception of a few invariably make the puzzle tougher to solve. Therefore variants form a central part of the competition. Read the instruction booklet for details.


Instructions for the competition are given in the Instruction Booklet (pdf). All participants MUST go through the instruction booklet. (Click here to download)
