X-Sums Sudoku puzzle is one of my favorite Sudoku type. In this post I am listing all the X-Sums Sudoku puzzles which I have created recently. X-Sums Sudoku appears in two different forms. One is with the Classic Sudoku template in which X-Sums are applied on the Classic Sudoku puzzle. Another one is Jigsaw X-Sums Sudoku in which X-Sums are applied on Irregular Sudoku template. I have created X-Sums Sudoku puzzles which both the templates and below are the links to these puzzles along with the instructions to solve these puzzle types.

To solve X-Sums Sudoku, first look at the minimum and maximum outside clues. For example, if 1 is given outside, one can immediately put 1 in the first cell. Similarly if 45 is given outside then one can immediately put digit 9 in the first cell. Similarly if 3 as outside hint then one can put 2 in the first cell and 1 in the next cell to make the sum as 3. Also if 44/43 is given one can immediately put 8/7 in the first cell and 1/2 in the opposite edge first cell.

Another thing to checkout in X-Sums Sudoku is that if the sum of opposite edge given numbers is 45 then sum of digits in the first cells of opposite ends will be 9.
