I think you meant to say g3 + i3 = 15...

But other than that, you lay out a solid case for why this puzzle wasn't as difficult as advertised. [flapper]

I missed a couple of the clues that seem so obvious once you point them out, but I did find several of them on my own. I'll be curious to hear what Patrick figures out with regard to the solver strategy.


Yes, yes, of course, I am sorry, this happens to me for doing the coordinates "in mind", I am reediting the post, thank you.

Hm, this may mean that I'm still missing an important solving strategy in my solver
(I thought I had them all now :-) )

It turns out it's more a matter of interpreting the results of the solver,
you're right, this puzzle is fairly straight-forward.

Thanks for the description of the solution,

Patrick
