XV Trio Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #165)

XV Trio Sudoku is nothing but mix of XV Sudoku and Trio Sudoku puzzle. My last XV Trio Sudoku puzzle contained so many X and V markings and I had tough time creating the image for this puzzle. This time I have played it safe by avoiding any sum 10 or 5 for consecutive numbers. So this Sudoku does not have any X or V markings. It means that one has to use the converse rule to maximum to solve this puzzle. 
This XV Trio Sudoku I am posting as 165th Sudoku in The League of Extraordinary Ladies & Gentlemen.

Kropki Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #164)

My last Kropki Sudoku was the tough one. Now its time to post Medium difficulty level Kropki Sudoku. Its long time I have created Sudoku puzzles for my blog as I was busy creating some puzzles for other championship and for the kids for the summer camp from last one month. It was nice to see kids starting the age of 7 years learning the logical puzzles in the summer camp :). Starting from this week, I will try to create some Sudoku puzzles and will try to post the regular puzzles here on this blog.

X-Sums Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #163)

From the last one month I have not created many Sudoku puzzles as I was busy creating puzzles for various puzzle championship. I was author of last Puzzle Ramayana round named Object placements and later there are few more forthcoming championship where I will be co-author for one set of puzzles. Also kids are on vacation now a days and I have created few puzzles to teach kids about basics of some of the puzzle types during these summer vacations. Anyway now for the next few weeks I will be creating Sudoku puzzles again.
I have not posted daily Sudoku or puzzle here on the blog from last few weeks, but thanks to Daily Sudoku League, I come back here for posting on every Thursday. It is the matter of just few more weeks before I become regular again for posting daily Sudoku puzzles :) 
This X-Sums Sudoku puzzle I am posting in The League of Extraordinary Ladies & Gentlemen as 163rd Sudoku in this series.
Rules of X-Sums Sudoku
Standard Classic Sudoku Rules apply. Additionally the clues outside the grid indicate the sum of the first X numbers placed in the corresponding direction, where X is equal to the first number placed in that direction.

Consecutive Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #162)

I generally try to post Sudoku in the Daily Sudoku League looking at any forthcoming championships. If a particular Sudoku type for which I have puzzle available is going to appear in the coming championship then I post that puzzle so that it can be used as a practice puzzle for that championship. Moreover puzzles posted in Daily Sudoku League can be solved online at SudokuCup website after a delay of 24 hours. Consecutive Sudoku type is going to appear in Dutch Sudoku Championship 2016. So I thought to post this Sudoku type today. This puzzle is not easy one can will be require a good logic. It will be good to see that how many people are able to solve this puzzle in less than 5 mins?   
This Consecutive Sudoku I am posting as 162nd Sudoku in The League of Extraordianary Ladies & Gentlemen.

Kropki Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #161)

Today I was having choice of few puzzles to post for Daily Sudoku League and I decided to post Kropki Sudoku as this Sudoku type is going to appear in forthcoming 3rd round of Sudoku Grand Prix 2016. This is the tough Kropki Sudoku and hopefully this will be good practice for the forthcoming test. As per my estimate an experienced player should take around 10 minutes to solve this Kropki Sudoku puzzle. 
This Kropki Sudoku I am posting as 161st Sudoku in The League of Extraordinary Ladies & Gentlemen.

Average Sudoku (Daily Sudoku League #160)

From the last few months, I have been posting at least one puzzle everyday. Few months back I changed the interface of the website by taking a blog template from website. For the first few weeks that template worked very well. However recently it started giving some problems and was making this website slow. So recently I have changed back to normal template to make this website look simple. I am hopping that I will now continue with the simple look for this website and will concentrate more on the content of the website :). After changing the template there has been some traffic changes on this website. I am studying these changes and will not be posting for one week to study these changes. Meanwhile I am creating some puzzles for kids for the forthcoming Summer Camps. I will post some interesting puzzles after one week break.
Today's Average Sudoku puzzles is not for kids and it is only for experienced players. This puzzle uses very nice logic combining Average Sudoku rules as wells as converse rules. Challenge here is to solve this Sudoku in less than 5 minutes.
