Been dashing around the field going dotty and wondered if that might be a method ..but cant make it give anything sensible. Have given the grids numbers and tried adding the squares the cows are in. Have noted that the puzzle is symmetrical. Have tried reorganising the grids of 9 so that they fit with sudoku rules. I think we need a push if someone would be so kind.

All the cows are the same, because they are clones but I can't find any sort of differences.

Morff I have PM'd you a theory to see if I am on the right track.

This one has stumped me

Read all the messages, and just don't know where to start - looked at ways they could be different, but not sure what to do with that - are you looking for a path, or clicking them in an order? Argh! Confused

This one isn't an interactive puzzle, so clicking the cows won't make anything happen. Equally, a path won't help either.

It is a 'normal' sudoku in the sense of solving it. The tricky bit is finding the differences...

have tried to find the differences between them - but that doesn't seem to be helping me solve the sudoku part of the puzzle...am considering turning the cows into hamburgers to see if that helps! Nudge please Smile

Check out my post from Mon Nov 05, 2007 9:57 pm.

Some of the words in there tell you where to look, then you need to look really closely at what youv'e got.
