Think Outside The Box (Lockout Lines)

(Eingestellt am 21. August 2021, 05:39 Uhr von tallcat)

The third puzzle from myself and riffclown to introduce Lockout lines - anti-between lines with a strong dash of Whisper logic. This puzzle is a step up from the prior two training puzzles. We strongly recommend that you do both of these training puzzles if you have not done so already.

Puzzle 1 ("Locked Out") can be found here

Puzzle 2 ("The Long Lockout") can be found here

Normal Sudoku Rules apply.

Lockout Lines: Endpoints (Diamonds) must differ by at least 4. Digits on the line must be different than endpoint values and must not fall between them. Digits can repeat if allowed by other rules. Each Lockout segment is treated as an independent Lockout Line.

Can be solved online at f-puzzles or CTC

Lösungscode: Column 8 (top to bottom) and row 2 (left to right). 18 digits, no spaces.

Beautiful puzzle!
Took a while to get used to the new ruleset, but after clearing that hurdle, it flowed nicely.
Well done!

I actually struggled a lot at the start since I couldn't work out the nicest way to start and it took fairly long time too, but eventually I figured out the crucial point and went through the puzzle smoothly. Lovely puzzle with the lockout constraint :)

Beautiful puzzle! I think this is the best of the lockout lines so far and after doing this puzzle I've fallen in love with this ruleset. I'm really excited to try more of these. Thanks for posting these and providing the gentle introductory puzzles! They really helped me get my head around the logic.

This puzzle is a strong hint for what is to follow.
