Six-pack Linked Sudokus
(Eingestellt am 25. August 2020, 00:57 Uhr von Genomico)
This is one large puzzle, consisting of six different variants of 6x6 sudokus, which are all linked together by circles.
A circle must contain one digit from 1 to 6 and is an outside clue for both adjacent puzzles.
Normal 6x6 sudoku rules apply to all sudokus, so every row column and region must contain the digits 1 to 6.
Additional rules per variant:
Clues outside the grid indicate the difference of the first two digits
in the corresponding direction.
Digits outside the grid have to be placed in one of the first two cells
in the corresponding direction.
Next-to-6 Sum Sudoku:
Clues outside the grid indicate the sum of all direct neighbours of the digit 6
in the respective row or column.
Every digit represents a skyscraper with the same height. Clues outside the grid indicate the number of visible skyscrapers
from that side. Higher skyscrapers block the view of lower ones.
Clues outside the grid indicate the length of the longest series of ascending digits
in the corresponding direction. (E.g. the length of a 1-3-6 series is 3.)
First seen odd/even Sudoku:
Clues outside the grid, if odd, show the first odd number
in the corresponding direction; or
, if even, the first even number
The puzzle is also available on Penpa
I enjoyed creating this puzzle, so I hope you enjoy solving :) It might take some time though. And be careful not to break it ;)
Lösungscode: The row with the 18 circled digits in the middle of the grid.

Very surprised that this got rated 5 stars, it does take time but there is nothing very technical about it. Anyway, an excellent puzzle, thank you Tom.
Edit: and... it dropped to 4 stars. :D

What a marvellous puzzle. All six sudokus are intricately linked and there was so much to do in here.

This is astoundingly good. Each individual Sudoku is cleverly crafted, and the path that leads you through all 6 is beautiful. Easily one of the most enjoyable puzzles I've ever had the pleasure of doing.
