    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!
