This is the seventh and final puzzle in my series exploring the diagonal contraint with other contraints. It was always planned to be the big finale, and the hardest puzzle in the series.

Rules:

  • Normal Sudoku rules apply.
  • Digits can not repeat along the indicated diagonals.
  • Digits in circles indicate the sum off all the cells on the attached arrow.
  • Within cages, digits must sum to the number given in the top left corner of the cage.

I have since found out that this puzzle has a striking resemblance to a puzzle by the excellent setter Tallcat called Four Corners. This was unintentional and I did not remember Tallcat's puzzle when I set this. Tallcat has urged me to keep this active; and I have been told that the logic all the way through is different.


This puzzle has been featured by Scott Strosahl on his channel. Thanks Scott for the video.

The feedback on this puzzle was that it was hard, so as I always try to do for hard puzzles I have created a solve video for people who are stuck and would like some guidance on how to progress with the logic of the puzzle.

I very much appreciate the shout out to Four Corners. However, this is a wholly unique and fantastic puzzle in its own right! Wonderful break-in and interactions.
