Hey Puzzlers
I seem to find the "extras" set at too easy a level. How about increasing the difficulty?

Except the 15:)

Please leave difficulty level where it is........there are plenty of difficult ones already ( 15x15, 12x12, -3 to +3, medium and killer Sudokus, etc)......increasing difficulty would benefit those who can do them and allow them to move up the ranks faster than those who cannot!!

One option could be to have two extra puzzles every day, one at the
current level, and one more difficult?

Good solution not scoring points for this last more difficult, so everyone is happy. :-)

It's normal, all solutions are liked by some and not by others. I tend to avoid the time spent doing puzzles which are pointless, figuratively speaking:)

I need to be quite bored to complete the easy suduko and would probably not do an extra extra.
In any case leaving the extras as they are would not cause any sleepless nights:)

I could make it so there are two choices: the current one, and a harder version.

The first one you solve will get you the 8 points, the 2nd won't add any points.
