Addendum: forum puzzles

Beitrag von hone » Donnerstag 16. Mai 2019, 14:31

In addition to the contributions to the Weekly Extremes, some more puzzles are scattered over forum threads.
As it was in the early stages, their URL strings did not contain the solutions, so here they come again with the solution substrings included.
Caution: all these puzzles are chainy.

Low hint puzzles
In a discussion the question was raised, how many clues/hints are necessary for a pattern to yield a unique solution. The following examples all show that it is possible to provide less than a full clue to achieve this; in descending order of restrictions by hints.

Extreme_14 The original weekly extreme #14 had some clues. They are not necessary. Set F7 to [34].
Roessl9 Set C4 to [123].

The very first zero hint was the asymmetric 7x7 full knights move pattern as shown in the image. The pattern has only 2 solutions, so it is sufficient to set a proper compartment to high/low.

For the browser application a version expanded to the usual 9x9 grid is available:
Roessl7_extended The solution provided is for AB6 low.
