6x6s?
The 6x6 puzzles seem to be getting a lot easier lately, especially the difficults. For example, over the past week or so I have solved most of the difficult 6x6s in under 2 minutes, which is very rare, and today I solved all of the 6x6s in under 50 seconds. The easy I set a new unofficial PR on (34.761) and the medium was also under 40 seconds. The difficult (which, granted, was a twin puzzle) I solved in just 46 seconds. What's going on?

I could just be getting better at speed... I don't know

I doubt that they are getting easier but you are getting better at doing them..........practice makes "perfect" (or at least better)!

I agree that you are almost certainly getting faster.

But also, it's been pointed out that the twin puzzles might be rated as harder than they actually are. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=714

So maybe today isn't the best gauge, but you should enjoy it.

I agree with both of the wise answers.

When I found this site, I could not do several types of the puzzles. I had to learn about MOD and the Killer Sudoku. Slowly I got better at the puzzles. Just like I have learned about the Tues 9 x 9. I can usually do all the puzzles in a week, now.

I agree - it seems the twins do come pretty easy
