Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a nice Christmas and that you are enduring the cold weather well. Well, those in the Northern hemisphere anyway. 🙂

Let me tell you about the changes that I plan for 2009:

  • There will be more Jigsaw Sudoku puzzles on the Daily Sudoku variants page. They will be accompanied by the Sudoku Straights puzzles, which is something new, but I think you should learn. There will be fewer (non)consecutive puzzles – it seems they’ve gone out of fashion.
  • The “Download” page with Perfect Sudoku v0.4 is gone. That software is more than 3 years old and is way outdated. For the time being, I do not intend to release a newer version.
  • There will be a new page with daily puzzles! In fact, as of tomorrow, you will be able to download Daily Hidoku puzzles from this site! For those unfamiliar with Hidoku, check the puzzle variants category.
  • I intend to start creating more puzzle types: Hitori and Nurikabe are next in the queue! Stay tuned for updates.
  • I intend to publish a number of new books as well as new volumes of the old ones. Very soon a Picross (Hanjie, Griddlers, Nonograms) book is coming, followed by new volumes of the “Revenge”, Samurai, Hidoku and KenDoku. I’ll keep you posted.

    That’s it for now. Have a great New Year’s Eve! Best wishes!

    UPDATE: Sorry folks, for various reasons, I will start posting the daily Hidoku puzzles from around the 15th of January.

      Love your site!!!!
      My wife, twin daughters (in Melbourne, Australia and Edinburgh, Scotland), and their fiances are all terribly disappointed to hear that you will be reducing the number of (non)consecutive puzzles; they’re our favorite.

      I LOVE non-consecutive the most, too!

      Am I the only one who prefers non-consecutive puzzles to jigsaws?

      My favorite site for all stuff touching sudokus matter… Sometimes the “easy” problems are more difficult that the “insane”… Anyway, this is the right medicine against Alzheimer…
      My favorite puzzle was the clueless one – in 2007 ! – (the most difficult ever met !)
      Congratulations for all the new developments…

      I also love the (non)consecutive puzzles most too!

      I’m looking forward to a more balanced mix of puzzle types. The consecutive/non-consecutive are great, but I always like to see the jigsaw, windoku, even-odd, etc. And I miss the (non-killer) flowers and butterflies. Whatever happened to those?

      I’m looking forward to more jigsaws – my favorite on the daily sudoku page. If something has to be sacrificed my least favorite are the “greater than, less than” ones.

      noooooooo!!!! consecutive puzzles are my favorite (noncons not as much, though i do like them), and you are the only one that i have found that not only publishes them on this site, but also publishes them with any degree of difficulty. while i commend you on expanding the puzzle range of this site, please don’t sacrifice the consecutives! they have definitely NOT gone out of style…
      and by the way, i do enjoy nurikabe puzzles, but i LOATHE hitori…
