So today's difficult Killer Sudoku is also one that was replaced,
supposedly by a more "doable" puzzle.

How do people like it?

(solved only 45 times so far I see..)

I think I must not be very sensitive to puzzle difficulty. I didn't notice anything, like I didn't notice that the Sept 16 puzzle was especially hard. I only thought before that sometimes the medium killers were harder than the difficult.

68 solutions at this moment but why this puzzle is actually showing a rating of "0"?. Anyway the number of solvers gives an "approximate" idea of the difficulty ... I think the size of the cages, the 5 or 6 cells cages is what makes them more difficult, provided that there are not 1-cell cages ... though with "only" 55 days of experience with the KSudokus perhaps we have not enough data to derive conclusions ... Sure what it's clear is that everybody like them.
