Fences (Mini Puzzles Series #19)


This is Classic Puzzle type which appeared in many of the World Puzzle Championships and now it is appearing in 1st episode of Puzzle Ramayan. Fences puzzle is also known as Loop the Loop or Slither Links puzzle. However I will be using name as Fences for this type of puzzle as this is the standard name for this puzzle type.
This Fences is very old puzzle which I created long back and now re-publishing as 19th puzzle in Mini Puzzles Series.
Rules of Fences puzzle
Draw a single closed loop by connecting neighboring dots/"along the edges" horizontally or vertically (but not diagonally). A numbered square indicates exactly how many of its edge segments are used by the path.

Classic Sudoku (Fun With Sudoku #91)


There are many Classic Sudoku puzzle which I have created and published. I found creating a Classic Sudoku puzzle tougher than a creating a Sudoku variations. In none of the Classic Sudoku puzzles, I could got the pattern of hints I was looking for. For each of the these puzzles I had to add extra hints to make it unique and solvable. However for the variations, now I am trying to create some puzzles where I don't have to give any hints e.g. Frame Sudoku and Kropki Sudoku I will be posting these puzzles soon.
This Classic Sudoku, I am posting as 91st Sudoku in Fun With Sudoku Series.

Average Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #128)


Recently I have created some converse rule Sudoku puzzles like Consecutive Sudoku, Average Sudoku, Kropki Sudoku, XV Sudoku etc. Average Sudoku is one of these creations. Average Sudoku I have first seen in one of the round by Swaroop in Sudoku Mahabharat. I liked this puzzle and was looking to create some puzzle of Average Sudoku type. Earlier I had created one puzzle which was published with title Average Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #101). There are four more puzzle I created recently and I am posting best one among these four puzzles now. Rest of these puzzles, I will post in the coming days. 
This Average Sudoku, I am posting in Daily Sudoku League as 128th Sudoku in this series.
Rules of Average Sudoku
Classic Sudoku Rules apply. Additionally if the number in a cell equals the average of its two horizontal neighbors then the cell is marked with a horizontal line. If the number in a cell equals the average of its two vertical neighbors then the cell is marked with a vertical line. All possible lines are marked.
