New to the forum, so please be gentle :-)

Our local newspaper prints a Dave Green Su Doku every day:

a 1-star puzzle on Monday
a 2-star puzzle on Tuesday
a 3-star puzzle on Wednesday
another 3-star puzzle on Thursday
a 4-star puzzle on Friday
another 4-star puzzle on Saturday
and finally, my favourite, a 5-star puzzle on Sunday.

I love the 4 and 5-star Dave Green puzzles. Where can I find more of them?

Does Dave Green have a book out?

Best regards,

Lale

There are no books of Conceptis Sudoku yet.

However, if you can find either of the magazines Kappa Sudoku or Blue Ribbon Sudoku (also published by Kappa), those are all puzzles supplied by Conceptis. They only go Easy, Medium, Hard and Hardest, though.

But, I do have to say that a book is not a bad idea.

Actually, I think Kappa uses the Conceptis Sudoku puzzles. I just want to see some variants getting in there as well.

And Dell has two Sudoku magazines, one with the X (diagonals) variant in it. Pennypress also has an Easy Sudokus magazine where every puzzle is an easy difficulty level puzzle. None of these are Conceptis however, and are available in the United States and Canada (new issues every month from Dell, every other from Pennypress, got the first six from Dell already ). On the subject of Kappa and Blue Ribbon magazines, got the first two of each of those as well; had to find one elsewhere as I didn't see that one in my main shopping place this time around, but got lucky to find the other one.

Is there a way to get old conceptis sudoku variation puzzles - I would also like the weekly puzzles to be labeled easy, medium, hard, very hard. I cannot find any more sumsudoku puzzles other than the two examples anywhere.... It is the variations that I am looking for.

I agree...the Sudokus may as well be available in an archive, there are a large number of sites with thousands upon thousands of puzzles available at your fingertips. I'm even thinking of designing a site where several 16x16 puzzles will be available daily since I have an app. that does those.

I do agree that I wish the variants would be more widely available. I added an idea I saw recently into the "MultiSudoku Variants To Do" archive courtesy of a quick e-mail, as well, and would personally love to see some of those when they come out.

BTW, aren't we supposed to have a subscription service by now? What happened with that?

Susan, the numbers at the end of the puzzle number are the difficulty rating. Somewhere in the forum they are listed. If I remember correctly, Cyclone posted them and may do so again if we ask nicely.(?)

Third time trying to post this in the right thread, hope I finally got it. *LOL*

Um...you would have been forced to do countless hours of research to analyze the difficulty level of each puzzle. You would have shriveled like a prune, and would have said funny things in a high-pitched voice. Then you'd sleep.

Heehee. ROTFLMAO, considering how big it is that will take a while. Heehee.

Hi, Susan:

I have been getting some sumsudoku (killers) at http://www.timesonline.co.uk/section/0,,202,00.html
If you scroll down a bit, it has links for a daily set of puzzles that always has a sumsudoku!

I hope this info is new to you.

I have ordered the Norwegian magazine "Sudoku Mix" which supposedly has over 100 Conceptis sudoku variants in each issue - I haven't received one yet but I will let you know how it is :) I love the more difficult ones too and all the books and magazines I see have too many easy ones and not enough hard ones. (I am located in Southern California, USA.)

Leena and all -

I found it here on the Conceptis site. Go to "Puzzle Fans" and then "Worldwide Subscriptions." YOu can click on the link provided and contact the publisher directly. He was a very nice man and answered all my questions promptly.

I am COMPLETELY adicted to killer (AKA sum) sudoku! I am a math and logic puzzle lover so, go fig!
But I need MORE!! I already goto the Times UK website and get one daily, but I'll do 3 or 4 a day (see, totally adicted) and was wondering if anyone knew where I could find more.
Oh, and thanks for the esnips info! I am a math teacher and have my students hooked, so now I'll have a never ending supply to give them!!
Thanks!

Here's a shortcut to wisdemol's topic: http://www.conceptispuzzles.com/puzzlefans/forum/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=&whichpage=1&TOPIC_ID=1364

And Rosa is right, there are thousands, I'd say around 50M of various sudoku, karuko, and slitherlink puzzles (hence, the topic's name)
