The standard rules for sudoku say that you have a 9×9 grid and need to put in every digit from 1 to 9 in a way that each digit occurs exactly once in each row, column and 3×3 box.
So the grid can be separated into 9 distinct groups, where each group only has one digit. These groups have one cell in each row, column and box and are completely disjoint.
But did you know that that is not true when looking at subgroups of cells?
Find a group of cells, such that:
- There are exactly two cells in each row, column and 3×3 box
- The group can NOT be separated in two groups of exactly one cell in each row, column and 3×3 box.
