Lexamino (QC-1)

Thanks to Hendrik Hardeman for introducing puzzle culture in India. Even though World Puzzle Championship is quite old but it was his effort when the full Indian team took part in WPC first time in the year 2004. Our performance in the first WPC we participated in was not very good. To improve our puzzle-solving skills Hendrik suggested that we should be creating puzzles. So to improve our puzzle-solving skill we started the Quixy Challenge series where we will create puzzles that at that time was used by one company to hold internal puzzle competition among its employees. Currently, Hendrik is not active in the puzzle world and now Logic Masters India is doing its best to create Puzzle/Sudoku awareness in India.

I will be published in the next few posts some of the puzzles created as part of the Quixy Challenge (QC) dedicated to Hendrik. Each of the QC contains three puzzles along with one example. The first puzzle is very easy and second is moderate and the third is tough. Some of the links mentioned in the QC puzzle documents are now invalid but I don't want to change them as per the copyright of Novax Media. 

The first puzzle in the QC series is Lexamino (or Irregular Sudoku with Alphabets)

Lexamino Puzzle Instruction

Complete the grid by entering letters from the indicated range in the empty cells in such a way that each row, column, and outlined shape holds all distinct letters.
