    I love how the puzzle solver goes from “this is a joke” to “well I guess I could try this step but I don’t believe I will get very far” to “this puzzle is a work of genius!” The growing enthusiasm of the puzzle solver is infectious!

    Truly enjoyable and a great mental exercise, thank you for pointing it out – kudos to Simon, and even bigger one to the puzzle’s creator! And there goes my morning, sigh…three hours later, and I am still hooked on a variety of sudoku brainteasers this site has to offer!
