## Sudoku Variants Series (061) - Before Nine

(Published on 27. January 2015, 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.

Before Nine
Place the digits from 1 tot 9 in every row, column and 3x3-block. Clues outside the grid are the sum of the digits that are placed before the 9 in the corresponding row or column. This variant appears in the coming GP-round, from 30 January till 2 February so you can have some extra practise.

Solve online in F-Puzzles (thanks Crul!) or in Penpa+ (thanks Nick Smirnov!)

Solution code: Row 3, followed by row 9.
