I’m with TJReds—I came up against a hard wall in this puzzle about halfway through. Once I eventually found my way past that, though (working out the relationships between the 3s in boxes 5, 8, and 9), the end flowed very nicely.

I’m still at the point where I don’t quite breeze through one-star puzzles, but I’m starting to have the hang of the logic enough to want a bigger challenge. This definitely felt like a two-star to me.

Very nice. Between 1* and 2*, rather 1*

@TJReds @Tingo I don't know, I found the entire solve very straight-forward, not difficult at all. Maybe you missed one clue!
Thanks for the puzzle.

@TJReds

My method of setting is to get the break-in I want and then clue a path to finish a puzzle. I attempt to solve the puzzle a handful of times along the way to make sure it's humanable. In this case, I had an incredibly difficult time with this clue pattern disambiguating the 8 and 9 in box 6. I contemplated adding one more dot to the puzzle elsewhere to help it unravel but eventually found some existing logic that already made that path available. I suspect one more dot would make this puzzle far easier, but I also do shoot for a little bit of challenge with my sets. I appreciate you playing and I hope the eventual solve was satisfactory. - Tingo

Idk why but I had an incredibly difficult time finishing off this puzzle after I used up all the clues. Really enjoyed the beginning though!
