Article on 'Toughest Sudoku' in Mirror Newspaper

There is a one-page article on Arta Inkala's 'Toughest Sudoku' in Mumbai Mirror on 20th August, 2010. I had given it a shot last night and was able to solve it in 21 minutes using guesswork. His challenge to everyone is to find a logical path of solving it, which he says can take weeks! I had given my views and feedback.

You can read the article from the e-paper links:
Mumbai Mirror (20th August, 2010)
Pune Mirror (21st August, 2010)
Bangalore Mirror (23rd August, 2010)

I think it is impossible to solve it by logic. And the rumours about solving it logicly within weeks is quite silly. What do you think about it ?

Thanks Mehul.

I, too, don't think its possible to solve without guesswork. Very improbable.

Congrats Rohan!

Links for Pune and Bangalore Mirror needs to be corrected. You can check at my blog for correct links.

It all depends upon what one means by "logic".
If one has to foresee 8 to 9 steps at a time, that is not "logic" to me.

Mehul said...

@Deb

you are right Deb, if one has to oversee 8 to 9 steps, it is not a logical puzzle.

I don't like to solve puzzle which require lot of guess work.
