I had a problem with the 1/11/18 puzzle published in my newspaper. The puzzle had the given squares place differently from the solution that was published, as well. I have attached a picture that shows the given with an arrow to the location that is shown in the puzzle. The puzzle as given is not solvable.

Geez. That's not just one number in the wrong box. I don't even see any pattern to the shifts. I wonder what happened to cause all of the placements to be scrambled so badly.

cwbird,

I don't know what has happened with the printed puzzle in your newspaper.
I have checked your attached solution, and this is the correct solution for that date.
Of course, I can't know if the newspaper had some kind of technical printing problems or if they published a "wrong puzzle" which was supposed to be published on another date and doesn't match the solution for that reason. I can only guess because I don't see a scan of their published puzzle.

Maybe you can ask the newspaper itself what has happened.

Just in case it helps, I have attached the puzzle as it was supposed to be.

Thanks,
Jochen
