Starlight (FOW Renban Sudoku)

(Eingestellt am 26. Oktober 2022, 15:50 Uhr von purpl)

I decided to try my hand at setting one of these Fog of War puzzles inspired by the work of Chameleon in his puzzle Lumos Maxima. I solved Lost by Dathan and set my own puzzle Starlight all while recording. You can see my process by clicking the image below:

Please note that this puzzle uses a beta version of the CtC Webapp, so there could potentially be issues!


Normal sudoku rules apply.

The grid is covered with fog. There are two initial light sources that illuminate the darkness and clear the fog. Put correct digits into the cells to get more light (it's okay to put a digit into a cell that is covered by fog).

Digits on the purple renban lines must form a non-repeating consecutive sequence in any order. Renban lines never intersect or overlap with other renban lines or themselves (there are no self-loops or branches).

I have a YouTube channel where we discuss puzzles and setting them. Including interviews of Jay Dyer, Jesper, Phistomefel, jovi_al, and more.

Lösungscode: Row 9 (left to right, 9 digits, no spaces or commas)

Fantastic puzzle, requiring some fascinating deductions! Boxes 4, 5 and 6 were approachable for me, but breaking into boxes 1, 2 and 3 was quite difficult. I’d be curious to know if the deduction I used to place digits in box 2 was intended, but I’m not sure how to ask without spoilers! Anyhow, beautiful work :)

Memeristor: there's a video with the whole setting process! Just read the post again.

Very enjoyable, my first FOW solve! It's amazing to see where these sudoku variants are headed. Thanks so much for setting!

Fun approachable puzzle!

Quick heads up, if you use a chrome extension like Dark Reader it will reveal the renban lines through the fog and the in app dark mode causes the lighting to look funky. I'm an avid dark mode user but it's probably best to solve this puzzle in light mode

Great puzzle! Some interesting new logic from the fog of war/renban combination.

I was absolutely flying through this then suddenly came to a halt and spent around half an hour on that last part. A lovely puzzle though with some really clever logic!
