Ladies and gentlemen! 🙂
I am really pleased to present you with a unique puzzle. Perhaps you might think this is nothing special, but for me it is, it was not so easy to make this!
It’s my first ever MULTI SUDOKU (SAMURAI)! It is sometimes also referred to as “Loco Sudoku” and it sure is “loco”, i.e. CRAZY! Do you have other suggestions for the name?
It is, essentially a Samurai Sudoku puzzle. However, all 5 subpuzzles are different sudoku variants with different rules! In this particular one, it goes like this:
 The central subpuzzle is Non Consecutive Sudoku. This is crucial, because it looks like ordinary sudoku, but it is not! You cannot place two consecutive numbers inside the central subpuzzle!
 Top left is Jigsaw Sudoku.
 Top Right is Diagonal Sudoku.
 Bottom Left is Hyper Sudoku Windoku.
 Bottom Right is Consecutive Sudoku. If there is a horizontal or a vertical bar between two cells, then the numbers inside them must be consecutive. If there is no such bar, the numbers must be non consecutive.
Get it? 🙂
UPDATE: The solution has been updated. 🙂
The puzzle is rated IQ but it’s not all that hard… I think. 🙂 Hint: Don’t start with the Hyper or the Noncons!

Oh, and don’t be confused… each subpuzzle cannot be solved independently! If you try that, you will get multiple solutions! However, the whole puzzle does have a unique solution! So you must work on the puzzle as a whole. Read the Samurai Sudoku rules first!

First and foremost – I love the puzzle! I am very addicted to your five and 13 grid layouts and have never really done the other variants – but now I will have to learn because I adore the puzzle you just sent! thank you so much! However, clicking on the button for the answer, just showed me the empty puzzle again. I did get the answers from the lower print out, though. You might want to change that. I can’t wait to try the new puzzle! Thank you again.
