I couldn't solve this logically but had to try one of two alternatives to complete the puzzle. I must have missed something!!!

It was logical for me.
If I remember it correctly:
In some cases you have two pencil marks (1 and 2) of one number left in one row that are in different areas, let's say colour 1 and colour 2. If, in a differnet row, this pencil mark is in a cell of colour 2 next to the pencil mark on colour 1, then you can delete this mark, because if it was that number, then in the row (the one I'm talking about) would not be an instance of that pencil mark left, because both are to be deleted if it was that number.

I think I had to do this a lot in this one, and at one point the pencil mark in question was pretty far away...
(and it works also with more than just 2 pencil marks for an area... that I had to use as well)

But maybe I'm wrong and I'm talking about that big today's Jigsaw, where I forgot to delete some pencil marks for a given number at the beginning and used those to exclude that number somewhere else where it would have been correct...

Thank you Joerg. I'm not sure I understand but will look out for this situation next time!:)

Have just solved the puzzle again and I think I see what you mean Joerg as I used your idea and solved logically!!!!! And in half the time:)

Key

  • A yellow/light blue highlight in the time distribution charts highlights your time, where relevant.
  • Rating scores out of 10.0 show the average difficulty rating chosen by users, where 1.0 is "Easy" and 10.0 is "Hard".
  • If a puzzle is opened more than once, including by loading from a saved position, then this is potentially a significant aid so it is listed as being completed with 'multiple sessions' for the purpose of the best time/average rating displays above.
  • Minor aid is defined as no more than one use of 'Check solution' when incomplete and/or no more than one use of 'Check solution' when wrong; and/or using highlighting aids (show repeated digits, show broken inequalities and show valid/invalid placements [slitherlink] only). Major aid is any and all other use of the solving aids except for 'show wrong'.
