Wendy’s puzzle (triple loco sudoku)

Here we go! It’s been a while since I last posted a free sample puzzle and thanks to Wendy, one of the regular visitors to this website, I am posting a puzzle which I think she’ll like. 🙂 She sent an email saying that in the new volume of the Loco Sudoku book, she preferred the double and triple loco puzzles to those in the samurai format.

Well… since that is the case, here is a multi sudoku (aka loco sudoku) triple puzzle consisting of one hyper sudoku, one diagonal sudoku and one consecutive sudoku. Remember, there are three puzzles with three different sets of rules, but the overlapping regions must conform to the rules of the overlapping puzzles. Most overlapping regions follow the rules of two puzzles but the central nonet of the whole puzzle belongs to all three constituent puzzles!

Of course, remember to use the Twin Nonets solving technique for this puzzle!

    Hi,
    solved the book too. Not one of your best!
    It’s true that this variation is missing in your new book, but it doesn’t matter at least.
    The most important problem for me: always Hyper, Consecutive and Diagonal, very easy to solve and really strange for me that “brain” or “IQ” is often easier to solve than “cool” or “thinker”! Something went wrong -a mistake?!
    And it was often boring.
    But the book makes fun in the last chapter. A better continuation in hope!
    Don’t worry.

    I totally agree with Tina. This puzzle’s level is “Easy” or at most “Cool”, surely not IQ as written in the name of downloaded file. You start with the Consecutive part, fill the entire subgrid with minimum initial difficulties, then complete the puzzle quickly and trivially.
    Too many clue-digits at the beginning, I have often seen some Consecutive sudoku with a unique printed number.

    In any case, Djape’s work is brilliant, for example his Calcudoku and Hidoku are the best in the world! But sometimes there’s a hitch… as it happens to the best of us!

    Sorry for my English, I live in Italy… and good improvement!
