When was the last time I posted a Killer Sudoku variant puzzle for the first time? I can’t remember. Well, nearly 8 years (I’m a bit slow, you know) after publishing first Killer Sudoku, it occurred to me that there is no reason not to add the 0 into play.
So… ladies and gentleman… a world premier (or is it?)…

How to solve this? Well, use exactly the same techniques as you would normally. The rule of 45 still applies – we are only adding the 0! However, be careful when analyzing cage combinations – things are now quite different and there are more options for each cage sum. And don’t be surprised when you see a sum of “2” over 2 cells. 1+1 is not an option (no repeats, of course), but there is now another possibility: 0+2!
What do you think? 🙂

Stravo,
this 10 x 10 …so tricky…a really new dimension of Killers!!! And pretty great for me as a “hardcore” KillerSudokufan! Have to start by “Zero”! ;o))
Hope a “book” will follow in the future?!
Tina, I will surely start including a few 10×10 Killers in my future Killer Sudoku books! 🙂
Notified the complete new cage combination reference with zero now! But what’s about Wikipedia Killersudoku in the future? Time to actualize too???!!!
Great! Very enjoyable and I’d love to see more. Maybe a zero killer with overlapping grids? 😉
Wow, you guys always want more and more complicated stuff. 🙂 Lets see what we’re going to do with these ones. Perhaps a regular Killer Sudoku 10×10 on Saturdays? 🙂
What did you think of the difficulty of this one? Is THINKER the right level?
THINKER is the best!!!
And @Scott! What a great idea!!!:o) It should be possible without breaking the rules! My offer:
A two coloured puzzle:
1. Black fields: normal Jigsaw including zero
2. Red fields: the overlapping Killer cages
3. Some regions without any entrance and some with “even/odd” and “” hints only
My dream! The funniest and hardest Sudoku ever, or???!!!
Next step 16 x 16?
Hmmm… maybe! But I think that would be way too difficult, don’t you?
It would be boring too! Same as the 12 or 16 cellsudokus!!!
Ok, then I won’t create them 😉
I like the idea of 16×16
There is one Killer 16×16 in the Sudoku 16×16 Compendium! 🙂
May we have all thw Killer Sudoku 10×10 since 15 of june? I miss them ¡¡ Thanks ¡¡
