Su-Disc-Ku

Postby poohbcarrot » Fri Feb 06, 2009 6:52 am

If anybody likes this sort of thing, here's a sudoku in which I have replaced the 9 numbers with 9 Discworld characters.

(Bonus points for identifying the 9 characters)

That's very good. However I never got into sudoku and don't even know how to play it. :lol:

Nice one Poohbcarrot. I love sudoku. :D
Can't move characters so how do you go about filling the grid?

I mean is there anyway I can physically move the characters or do I copy to pen and paper and assign them numbers and then list where they are?

Well, you could print out 9 copies, cut up the little pictures from 8 copies, then place them on the 9th grid in their correct places and hope you don't sneeze, or you could use a pencil and paper. Personally, I would choose the latter.

Or you could download a sudoku generator free of charge from this site and generate as many free sudokus as you want. You can also solve them on your computer.

If anyone likes Killer Su-Disc-Ku, here's one I designed a few years ago.
There are clues to 6 TP books. What are the books?

Well I can see The Fifth Elephant; Jingo (Gin-go :lol: ) Guards! Guards!; The Thief of Time?; The Colour of Magic; but I'm not getting the dog one yet - wild guess would be Mort (Mutt)?
