vsrawat Rated puzzle: Moderate Best completion time: 12:33 Time on first attempt: 1:29:29 Used 'show wrong moves'
couldn't find obvious next moves, so had to resort to trial and error and iterations.

Edited -
Got it.
In Left bottom set of 6, sum of two defined cages 3 and 18 is coming as 21, which is the total of 1-2-3-4-5-6 = the sum for the entire set of 6.
So, the one cage pushing in this set of 6 from outside R5C2, has to be the same number which has to be in the one cell going out from this set of 6 from the cage of 13 R6C3. otherwise the totals of two sets of 6 at bottom wouldn't come to 21.
As the possibility for R6C3 is 256, the same has to be in R5C2.
that helped in solving it quickly.

Thanks for a lovely game.

Vsrawat It gets easier as you learn combinations. Just remember that in 6x6 puzzles
each row or column must add up to 21, as must each 6 unit block. Also use the pencil marks!

Here I used the total in each 2x3 unit is 21; top left and bottom right units give a result and the rest follows straightforwardly. Also useful, of course, in 9x9 puzzle where each 3x3 totals 45. Your deduction about 2 digits having to be equal is also useful, vsrawat, but I didn't have to use it here.

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'.
