Post Tuesday 9x9 difficults
Often lately I have not bothered with these puzzles as the exhaustive multiplication and addition possibilities that are required seem too tedious. In contrast, this week's on Nov 20 I found much more appealing and accessible. (Judging from the number of solvers, either others also found this to be true or it was just easier).

This week was a bit more straightforward than usual. I find that in general, in order to solve the Tuesday 9x9, I have to work out the different multiplication options and the sum of each of these options. This usually narrows it down to relatively few possibilities, although sometimes I also have to work out the product of each of the options for some of the addition cells in order to narrow it down further.
