## Sudoku Variants Series (041) - Thermometer

(Published on 9. September 2014, 00:00 by Richard)

For this Sudoku Variants Project I have planned to publish a different Sudoku variant every Tuesday. I will see how long it takes before I am running out of ideas.

Thermometer Sudoku
Place the digits from 1 tot 9 in every row, column and 3x3-block. The digits in each thermometer-shaped region should be in increasing order, from the bulb to the end.

This puzzle can be solved without any T&E, but contains a few interesting steps.

Solution code: Column 1, followed by column 4.

Bedeutet aufsteigend sortiert strikt aufsteigend, oder ist es auch möglich, dass sich Zahlen wiederholen?

@Hasenvogel and others: The logic in this puzzle has everything to do with the shapes and positioning of the thermometers. For learning purposes I have written the first half of the solving path in a hidden comment. When I look to the (beauty)rating of this puzzle, I guess a lot of players have used T&E, which is a pity.

Einmal habe ich eine Fallunterscheidung benötigt.
Der rein logische Weg hat sich mir leider nicht offenbart.

Logisch lösbar, aber sehr schwierig. Für mich vier Schwierigkeitssterne.
