Well, you can fill in the entirety of the top-right 4x2 box before you look at anything else in the puzzle.

And don't forget that if there is no bar between squares then they aren't consecutive. Using this logic you can then immediately place a 5 to the right of the 7 in the top row, by thinking about how the 4, 5 and 6 must go in the remaining squares on that top row.

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'.
