Hearts Aflutter

(Eingestellt am 10. Februar 2024, 07:30 Uhr von misha)

Normal sudoku rules apply: place digits 1-9 in each cell such that no digit repeats in any row, column, or 3x3 box. Consecutive digits along the red line must differ by at least five. Cells with a pink heart contain an odd digit. Cells with a red heart contain an even digit. Digits in cells separated by white hearts are consecutive. Digits in cells separated by black hearts have a 2:1 ratio. Not all hearts are given. The sums of the cages encode a 4-word hidden message. Digits may not repeat in a cage. Cage sums are in order by the top-right cell of each cage. Each sum corresponds to one letter of the message.

Lösungscode: The hidden message.

The correct puzzle is for sure the one in the sudokupad link because it gives a V for LOVE instead of a P.... but there are other mistakes because it's not possible to get the end of the message... Misha ???

So, the picture of the puzzle, and the puzzle that comes up in Sudokupad when you click the link don't match? The red heart/odd cell in the center square is missing, and the 4-cell cage that's that's fully in box 3 in the picture is moved one column to the left in Sudokupad. Those are the only errors I spotted, but now I'm not sure which puzzle is the correct one, so I'm not sure it's solvable as is. But I love the idea of the puzzle, so I'd love to come back to it once it's fixed!

@The Bard : i dont agree, the puzzle is valid, i solved it and it has a unique solution that's 100% sure.... the problem is... i dont understand how to find the message, the beginning is ok but not the end

Misha,
Unless I am missing something as made, I don't think this puzzle is valid. I was having such trouble with it I rebuilt in F-Puzzles and went through all the possible solves with the computer solving it trying systematic digits in key spots and each possible digit came back invalid.
I did think you had a great idea for the break in which allowed 4 digits to be set, but after that I couldn't get it to work.

"Cage sums are in order by the top-right cell of each cage" Can you clarify please ? Solved the puzzle, cant have any idea of the message. Really boring
