    The puzzle site indicates a solution will be posted the same day as the puzzle, but I cannot access samurai sudoku puzzle published 20120526 Thinker. Where may I find it to check my problem areas?

    Marion, the solution to the weekly Samurai Sudoku is on the Solutions page: http://www.djape.net/solutions/

    I am looking for the solution for the Samurai Sudoku puzzle your site posted on Saturday 5/16/12. I have tried clicking on your weekly Samurai Sudoku solutions, but nothing downloads. It is not the same puzzle as was published in this 5/27/12 Sun. Wash Post. Do I have to use a social media website to access the solution for the Saturday puzzle?

    Where are the puzzles for 26 June 2012 and 27 June 2012? They’re not in the archive, and the puzzle for 27 June was never even posted on the Daily SuDoku Variations page.

    I can’t seem to open the puzzles in the archives. When I click on them it brings me to the previous page. I was away last week and would love to catch up on the killers that I missed.

  6. Posted July 2, 2012 at 2:31 pm | Permalink

    Andrea, thank you for pointing this out. I’ve experimenting with a new caching system and it’s causing some problems.

    Can you see the puzzles in the archive now?

        The archive will likely be available only if you click on the “like” button. This requirement will probably go away in about a month or so.

          I have “like” and “unlike” and “like” multiple times. I tried closing the web page and starting again. Nothing I try is working.

          I still cannot see anything in the puzzle archive.

          • Posted November 20, 2012 at 1:27 am | Permalink

            Karen, not sure why it’s not working for you. Can you access it from :00 to :30?

          I am having the same problem using the latest Firefox. I clicked “Like”, it accepted it, but won’t show the puzzles. Same on the Samurai page. My wife and I are huge fans of Samurai Sudoku. But we are not fans of this campaign. πŸ™ I’m a busy person and don’t want to have to log in at certain times to get my puzzles!!!

    You have been very generous in making your excellent Killer Puzzles available. Thank you for that.

    But I am very sad that you have now made Facebook membership a requirement for your users. Facebook is a dangerous world to enter and I don’t intend to do so.

    Presumably, to enforce this you are relying on the contents of a cookie on my PC. Also worrying.

    Can we do a deal? If I buy one of your books, will you make the daily puzzle and the archive available to me?

    • Posted November 20, 2012 at 1:25 am | Permalink

      Martin, I won’t force anyone to buy my books. You will buy them if you want to.

      Instead, I’ve made the archive available to everyone 50% of the time. πŸ™‚ So, it’s available from :00 to :30 of every hour.

    Been a fan for years and recommended this site heavily. The need to facebook like in order to see the archive is a non-starter. Not referring people to the site anymore until I hear this is corrected.

    No one has ever annoyed someone into liking them.

    • Posted November 20, 2012 at 1:26 am | Permalink

      Aaron, I’ve made the Archive available to everyone from :00 to :30 every hour. πŸ™‚

    Foiled again – the 30 minutes has been reduced, without notice, to 20 minutes. Would have been OK, I went in at about 10 past and the archive link has disappeared from the Killer page, and took me ages to find it. Now 5:21 and it’s gone.

      Keith, I’m sorry. Please come back in half an hour. It will work then!

    It is 7:40 pm = no archive – this is the third time I have tried. I have bought your books for my self and others, I have followed you web site for several years – but because I DO NOT have a face book page I feel I am being punished. I hope the inconvenience placed on your fans is worth it to you.

    • Posted December 15, 2012 at 12:54 am | Permalink

      lorraine, you are checking at the wrong time. The archive is available to everyone without the “like” button from :00 to :20 every hour!

    Where is the promised Tuesday posting of the Samurai Sudoku published Sunday, Jan 6 2013 Washington Post. Every once in a while the scheduled posting does not occur. It needs to be available with out social media.

    • Posted January 14, 2013 at 4:40 am | Permalink

      Hi Rob,

      Sorry for this delay. The archive is now updated with the solutions for Samurai Sudoku puzzles from The Post.

    The Sudoku Variants puzzle on Thursday May 2 is not available at all. What happened?

    • Posted May 4, 2013 at 1:57 am | Permalink

      Sorry Simon, it happens from time to time that I miss to update the daily puzzle. There is already a new one posted for Friday! πŸ™‚

        The variants puzzle on Thursday May 23 is not available in the archive again. Was there no puzzle on that day or you just forgot to update it to the archive? If the latter case can you please update it or give us the link here? Thanks!

        • Posted May 27, 2013 at 2:32 am | Permalink

          Simon, no, there was no daily sudoku variant puzzle on that day at all. Sorry. πŸ™ Will see to avoid such mishaps in the future. πŸ™‚

    Can’t see the archive – looks like the link to facebook has been switched on again. I can’t access facebook from work, where I view the puzzles. Not even any mention of the time slots that were in place for a few months.

      I think they are available for the first 20 minutes of each hour. I think he said that this restriction will last for a week.

      It is frustrating but they are his puzzles provided for free. And they are good.

    I keep hoping that you will make your Kindle puzzles available for the Android Kindle app that I have on my phone. Is there any chance of that happening?

    I went on holiday 2 weeks ago and now the archive Killers and the Insane are just the same as when I went away. Are you no longer updating them? I have been downloading them weekly since you began so the loss of a fresh set to do is disturbing!

    I am trying to find a solution to the Samurai Sudoku posted in the Washington Post’s Sunday edition for this year. All I can find are solutions for last year. Will they be posted soon?

    • Posted January 14, 2015 at 9:15 am | Permalink

      Hi Amie,

      Yes yes yes, the solutions for Samurai Sudoku from The Washington Post are now there! Sorry for this delay! πŸ™‚

    Looking forward to February, 2015 Washington Post solutions. Thanks.

    Seems like there should be multiple solutions to the March 20 puzzle. Am I wrong?

    • Posted July 7, 2016 at 11:56 pm | Permalink

      Hi Steven, please be more specific. Which March 20 (what year?) puzzle are you referring to? Where was it published and what kind of a puzzle is it? Then I can answer your question.

      • Steven
        Posted July 8, 2016 at 8:42 am | Permalink

        I’m referring to the March 20, 2016 Samurai Sudoku puzzle in the Washington Post. You can solve the four corner and center boxes of the middle sudoku without solving the remaining four boxes. This leads to four possible solutions (I believe).


        • Posted July 31, 2016 at 6:48 am | Permalink

          Steven, I don’t think that’s correct, but you never know, it might be. Please send me at least two complete solutions of the whole puzzle and then I will check. I still think that the March 20 puzzle has one solution only.

    Posted March 19, 2018 at 8:04 am | Permalink

    I’m attempting the Washington Post Samurai Sudoku from March 18, 2018 — it’s listed as a Level 2…and I don’t see how that it’s possible. Please tell me that’s a typo? I can usually finish a level 2 in a day or so, but I haven’t even been able to complete a solid row yet?

    • Posted March 20, 2018 at 3:09 am | Permalink

      Hi Ellebeie, I’m not gonna say that the assigned level is a typo. Instead, I’m going to give you a hint: you should start solving this puzzle from the center! That’s perhaps unusual and that’s why you can’t get a break. Focus on the hidden singles for 7s, 8s, 9s, 2s and eventually 6s. If you need more help I can certainly provide it. Please let me know how you go! Cheers
