How big is too big? Just wondering if anybody is interested in solving very large Calcudoku puzzles, is 20x20 too big?
The largest puzzle I have seen is 17x17, have there been any puzzles larger than 17x17?

The largest I've seen is also 17x17. I guess in theory there's no limit to how large a puzzle can be, but in practice I think it can become a bit boring and a bit of a chore if a puzzle is too large. I think 17x17 is plenty big enough.

Every step up in size makes a puzzle a lot harder to generate and solve.

The current limit is 17x17. Improving the software so it can create an 18x18 (in a reasonable amount of time) will take some work..

I will post an extra large calcudoku in the "Specific puzzles / your own puzzles" section soon. I created it as a challenge for myself, and it was probably more interesting to create than it is to solve.

I enjoy the larger puzzles myself. Maybe we can have a 17x17 a few times a year?
