Thanks to Deb for creating the EPS file for creating images of Kropki Sudoku, creating this Sudoku type has become a lot of fun. In fact, all the converse ruled puzzles like XV Sudoku and Consecutive Sudoku are fun to create if you somehow can create images for these types of puzzles. Anyway if one uses the program to generate the images then the pattern generated for these puzzles will be random. The challenge here is to create patterns within these converse puzzles. I have not yet tried to create a pattern for these puzzles. However soon I am going to try to produce the pattern for converse-ruled Sudoku puzzles. Let's see if I can succeed in this. Meanwhile, I am posting this Kropki Sudoku in the Fun With Sudoku Series as the 197th puzzle in this series. Can you solve this Kropki Sudoku puzzle?
