Build Your Own Killer: Master Designer 2
(Eingestellt am 18. September 2023, 00:00 Uhr von Playmaker6174)
As said before, here's another BYOK edition of mine that follows directly after the previous Master Designer one
, and this one pretty much uses the same exact rule set as in that puzzle.
This one may not work as strong as the previous one but personally, I did have a fun time analyzing the first half of the solve. I hope you find some of the ideas cool in here!
- Normal Sudoku rules apply: every row, column and 3x3 box contains digits from 1 to 9 each once.
- Every caged cell with a clue is used to construct a 'real' killer cage - an orthogonally connected area of cells that is one cell wide
. Every cage must contain exactly one clue, and the size number of a cage must be written into its corresponding clued cell
(for the sake of this part, a clue cell is not necessary in the top left of its respective cage)
+ IMPORTANT: Cages don't branch and also don't overlap with each other. No 2x2 area within the grid can entirely contain caged cells.
+ Within a cage, digits don't repeat and they sum to the clue written in that cage (if given). A ">X" clue means that the sum is bigger than X, while a "<X" clue means that the sum is smaller than X.
- A cell that contains an arrow doesn't belong to any cage
, and its digit shows how many cells away between it and the FIRST
caged cell found on the arrow's direction. For the case of a cell containing multiple arrows, each arrow is treated separately.
Below is a 6x6 example that can be solved in F-puzzle link
- Penpa plus
The main 9x9 puzzle:
- Penpa plus
Good luck and have fun solving!
Lösungscode: Enter the digits that ARE NOT caged cells in row 1 and row 2, from left to right for each row

Wow. I haven't done that many puzzles lately, but I haven't had that much fun solving a puzzle in a while. Great job and a fantastic ruleset.

Hello? Is it regarded as 'branch' that at least 2 cells are orthogonally linked to clued cells? (e.g. A-B-C-D-E if B is the clued cell)
Hi there. Branch can be understood as a T shaped tetromino, and in this puzzle no cage can form such shape.
