Did you need the wraparound??? I don't think I used anything other than basic sudoku rules...........

I don't understand your question.
Wraparound is simply the same as a Jigsaw - only those colored areas may be continued at the other end of the grid.
Or is there something extra you can use and I never knew it?

I presume she means that she solved it using just the rows, columns and non-wraparound regions?

I did check it wasn't also a standard sudoku, without marked boxes, but it isn't. :) Although those are possible to make too.

I meant I didn't have to use the wraparound regions; have tried it several different ways, obviously I used the fact it was a jigsaw type puzzle

hm...
I tried to completely ignore the orange and green cells at first to find out wether I can fill in all the other cells without them. Didn't work, because I had three cells left that I had to use those two colours for.

But I guess I understand now what you really mean:
You didn't use, that the given 5s in those two wrap-areas delete all possible 5s in the other part of these areas.

In fact you don't have to do that in this puzzle, because there already is another 5 that you can use to cancel these 5s.

I concentrated on the closed regions, filling in rows/columns where appropriate using ordinary sudoku rules and it seems to work!!

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'.
