Confused.. does that mean no white bar indicates all numbers are consecutive?

A white bar between cells indicates consecutive numbers. If there is no white bar, the adjacent numbers must not be consecutive.

So in this particular puzzle, no adjacent numbers are consecutive.

Oh... i thought that would be the case if it was consecutive sudoku, not non-consecutive sudoku. Still confused!

In a consecutive puzzle numbers are consecutive only where there is a white bar and all the others are non-consecutive. If there are no white bars then none of the numbers are consecutive so the puzzle is called non-consecutive.

But I see now the confusion.
If the title says "non-consecutive" - then the opposite rules should apply... not those consecutive-ones.

It's like this typical conservation, my wife: "You don't want any more food?" My answer: "Yes, I don't".

  • 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'.
