Killer Sudoku solving strategy on Youtube
I have created a video to show how to solve the Killer Sudoku from last Saturday (24th January 2021).

There are a few typing errors and it goes a bit quick, I will try to make improvements for my next video if there is any interest.

Thanks for posting that. I had a quick look at it and the first few steps are the same as I took. The live timing is a bit on the fast side, but that’s not a problem as I can pause the video as needed.

I’ll have a look at the rest of it to see where you managed to find the crucial step that eluded me for so long.

The more complicated steps start from about 1:25.
The timing is not great, I will work on that if I do another video, maybe it can be faster for the easy parts, and slow down for the more difficult steps.

Hi Michael

Thanks again for posting that video. As you say, it was the bit from 1:25 onwards that was key to unlocking the puzzle. The methodical process of elimination you used to determine where the 8 is located in row 3 was instructive.

While I eventually managed to solve the puzzle, I think I jumped around too much on the day and ran out of time. I’ll exercise more patience in future (including today’s Killer, which is proving to be a bit of a challenge so far).

Paul
