Clueless LOCO Sudoku

Here is a new puzzle I think you’ll like. It’s another LOCO Sudoku puzzle, however, it is not in Samurai format, but for the first time, it is in Clueless Sudoku format instead.

Before you try solving this puzzle, please become familiar with the Clueless Sudoku puzzles and with the Loco Sudoku puzzles, too.

Just to help you out with the instructions for this particular puzzle. There are 9 puzzles which all seem to be separate from the rest, each on its own. However, there is a trick! There is also a 10th puzzle which comprises of the 9 central nonets (3×3 boxes) from each of the 9 puzzles. The 10th puzzle is a plain old classic 9×9 Sudoku (aka “vanilla sudoku”). The name “clueless” comes from the fact that the 10th puzzle starts completely clueless (i.e. empty), because all 9 central nonets start without any clues! Get it?

Now… since this is a LOCO sudoku variant, I must tell you what the 9 constituent puzzles are:

  • TOP LEFT: jigsaw sudoku
  • TOP CENTER : NON-CONSECUTIVE sudoku (it looks like vanilla but it is not!!!)
  • TOP RIGHT: jigsaw combination sudoku
  • MIDDLE LEFT: hyper sudoku
  • CENTER PUZZLE: diagonal sudoku
  • MIDDLE RIGHT: inequality sudoku (greater-less than)
  • BOTTOM LEFT: consecutive sudoku
  • BOTTOM CENTER : partial odd-even sudoku (shaded=odd, square=even, blank=unknown!)
  • and BOTTOM RIGHT: KILLER sudoku!

Again, I remind you that the 10th puzzle is a plain vanilla sudoku!

Are you ready for this!?
