Dropped Kropkis

(Eingestellt am 27. Mai 2022, 10:49 Uhr von Dag H)


Normal sudoku rules apply.

Kropki dots: Digits in two cells separated by a white dot must be consecutive.

In this puzzle all but two of the white dots have disappeared and must be located by the solver. Any two orthogonally adjacent cells not connected by a dot may not contain consecutive digits (negative constraint applies).

The numbers on the outside of the grid are clues to locate the missing white dots according to the following rules:

  • A pair of digits next to a row or column shows the number of white dots before and after the digit 1, respectively, in that row or column. For example, in column 2 there are 2 white dots above the 1 and none below it.
  • All white dots on one side of a 1 must form a single continuous chain.
  • No white dot may connect to a 1. Therefore, no 1 in the grid will be consecutive to any of its neighbors.

Every row and column without a numbered clue is a [0 0]. The given white dots in rows 2 and 8 are counted in their respective row clues.
