They're referring to the puzzle KenKen, but this is a Killer Sudoku and works differently. I do post puzzles like KenKen on puzzlemix, but I call them Calcudoku because KenKen is a tradmark. In KenKen numbers can repeat in a cage; in Killer Sudoku they can't (also, KenKen don't have the sudoku 3x3 boxes).

Thank you, Gareth, but I'm still a bit confused as I thought numbers could not be repeated in a 'cage' in Killer Sudoku, whilst they can in Calcudoku (KenKen)? I also don't know where this applies in this particular puzzle.

Sorry, I wrote that backwards - now edited to fix. You're right. And it doesn't help, no - it was just a random comment. When a solver takes 2 hours, uses all the solving aids and then declares a puzzle easy, I usually assume their comment basically translates as "yay! I solved it!". :)

Thanks, Gareth, now I understand!! Yes, I wonder sometimes about what 'easy' means but I think you've got it right:)

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'.
