When it comes to Sudoku creation then converse ruled puzzles are one of my favorite puzzles and Consecutive Sudoku top the list. There are many Consecutive Sudoku puzzle which I have created and posted it on this website. While creating today's puzzle, I was thinking whether it is possible to create a Consecutive Sudoku which does not have any given hints. The answer I found is that "No". One cannot create a Consecutive Sudoku puzzle which does not have any given hints. We need to give at least one hint in Consecutive Sudoku puzzle and that hint should not be 5. The reason being that numbers 1-9 are symmetrical with respect to number 5. I mean number 9 can be replaced with 1, number 8 can be replaced with 2, number 7 can be replaced with 3 and number 6 can be replaced with 4 to get the same Consecutive Sudoku pattern. So in case if there is no hint then that Consecutive Sudoku cannot be solved uniquely. To make the Consecutive Sudoku unique we must give at least one non 5 digit to make it solvable.

For the today's puzzle, I tried to give on few digits possible to make it solvable. In fact only one hint is enough to make it proceed and solve. However I have given two number to make the hints symmetrical to each other. Lets see how much time you take to solve this Sudoku puzzle?
