There must be something wrong with the above logic, as I know I've seen at least one 9x9 with a rating of 130+.


If you want to be sure, todays 7x7 difficult also has a rating of 64.7.


I'm sure Patrick will explain. I've just re-read his post and he talks about averaging the number of possible combinations in each row and column, which would bring us back to n! instead of n!^n, so my logic is definitely flawed.
