Consecutive Pairs Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #178)

Consecutive Sudoku is one of my favorite type not only as solver but also as a puzzle creator. One will find many Consecutive Sudoku puzzles on this blog. There is one limitation while creating the Consecutive Sudoku is that it is very difficult to create a Consecutive Sudoku which has symmetric clues. I tried to create a few Consecutive Sudoku with some theme but could not achieve perfection as at end one will find some hanging clues here and there. Anyway now there is new variation to Consecutive Sudoku which is called Consecutive Pairs Sudoku. The difference between the two puzzles is that in Consecutive Pairs Sudoku, converse rules does not apply. It means that not all the consecutive numbers are marked. This gives author advantage to create some very good looking design. I have created few puzzles of Consecutive Pairs Sudoku type recently which I will posting soon on this blog.
This Consecutive Pairs Sudoku, I am posting as 178th Sudoku in The League of Extraordinary Ladies & Gentlemen.

Diagonal Sudoku (Fun With Sudoku #209)

There was time when I used to loathe Diagonal Sudoku. I could remember Times Sudoku Championship 2007 finals in which I was doing quite good and suddenly I made a mistake in Diagonal Sudoku which made me to slip to 5th spot. However later I started loving this Sudoku variation especially after creating few Sudoku puzzles of Diagonal Sudoku type. Today's Diagonal Sudoku, I created for World Sudoku Federation Sudoku Grand Prix 2016 Indian round. This Sudoku was highest pointer in the set and of course was one of the toughest puzzle in the set. I tried to create a arrow pattern for each of the quadrant and tried avoid putting any numbers of the main diagonals. Solving this Sudoku in less 7 minutes will be challenging :) 
This Diagonal Sudoku I am posting as 209th Sudoku in Fun With Sudoku Series.
