So, as we increase the difficulty Super Fiendish, the time has come to present the essential techniques for solving the most difficult Sudoku puzzles.

In Fig. 4, the relevant pencil marks are entered to show that you have two possible squares in which the 3 can be placed in the third and fourth columns, and three possible squares in the seventh column (highlighted). Even though evil sudoku is an extremely difficult game level, many experienced players find it the best way for brain training and developing mental skills. How to solve Sudoku Evil?

InNovember 2006, The Times introduced a new extreme level of Sudoku giving players a moredifficult level of logic: Super Fiendish. The swordfish technique isnamed aftera World War II biplane called the “Fairey Swordfish”, a Torpedo Spotter Reconnaissance biplane used by the Royal Navy from 1936 to 1945. In general, an x-wing is found when for two rows, there are two, and only two, possible squares in which a particular number can be placed, and for both rows these squares lie in the same two columns. To give you a good chance of spotting the swordfish you should enter all the pencil marks in the grid as shown here. First a couple of preliminary points: if you have ever completed any Fiendish or Super Fiendish Sudoku, you will be familiar with noting down candidates or pencil marks.

If you like playing some seriously hard Sudoku, try the puzzles at the end of The Times Sudoku 6 book with some requiring the swordfish technique. In this case, this particular number can be eliminated as a possibility for all other squares in those three columns. So, you can eliminate the 3 pencil mark from all other unsolved squares in these intersecting rows (Fig. Here we present the techniques that will help you solve the hardest puzzles using only logic and no guesswork.If you prefer to enter your own pencilmarks, up to six digits can be entered in each cell. You can add symbols too, such as question marks. Pencil marks are small numbers, usually written at the top of each unsolved square, listing all the possible values for that square. Therefore, on each of the three intersecting rows, the 3 must be placed in one of the highlighted columns.

If you really like Super Fiendish, you will have to wait a little longer for The Times Sudoku 7 with 25 extremely hard Sudoku, many requiring x-wing or swordfish to complete.Please be reassured that all Sudoku puzzles published in the Times are always solvable by logical means. submissions and try for the Experts list.

A swordfish is found when for three rows, there are two or three possible squares in which a particular number can be placed, and for all three rows these squares lie in the same three columns. Fig. 3 is a partially solved Sudoku, using easy and medium difficulty solving techniques; no more squares can be solved using them. Look along each of the rows in turn, noting each one that contains only two or three squares with the current number as a possibility. Essentially, this method uses the fact that in certain cases, there are only two possible ways of placing two numbers in four squares which form a rectangle. The pivot contains candidates XY. The pincers - candidates XZ and YZ. Any cell that intersects both pincers can’t longer contain a candidate for digit Z, because the pivot means either of the pincers to contain this digit.

Picking the Right Crossword Puzzle

Solving these puzzles is a different matter entirely, since these are the most difficult puzzles we create. Difficulty depends on the type of steps required to solve them, and also on the number of each type of step. See our guide to solution rules for hard sudoku puzzles. It is a fact that you cannot place the 7 in the first column square of both the highlighted rows at the same time. With many advanced techniques, the key is to spot patterns within your pencil marks to eliminate possibilities within other squares.
