This is a unique sudoku. With Rules :

  • Common sudoku rules apply.
  • Numbers 1,2,3 have an additional rule, they are also chess queens.
  • If all others numbers removed, the 1s do not attack each other horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
  • Same rules as number 1 also apply to numbers 2 and 3.
  • There is only 1 unique solution.

Here's my answer:

721 839 456
864 512 937
359 467 812

612 958 743
497 326 581
538 741 629

176 284 395
283 695 174
945 173 268

I sure hope I didn't make any silly mistakes like last time...

The way I solved it:

I managed to first place all threes. From there, I could place all the ones. Adding the middle left 9, central 6 and top right 5 using sudoku rules, I could place all twos. Then, all that was left was a regular sudoku.

  • $\begingroup$ @rudra : no they aren't, check it again. first 1 in 3rd col, 2nd 1 in 5th col. $\endgroup$ – Jamal Senjaya Dec 1 '17 at 10:04
  • $\begingroup$ @rudra I think what you're seeing is an artifact from the formatting... When looking in excel, it's easier to see that they're not attacking each other. $\endgroup$ – Lolgast Dec 1 '17 at 10:04
  • $\begingroup$ Or just look in the picture of the question, as the diagonal line containing 1, 5, 6 are all given as clues. $\endgroup$ – Jaap Scherphuis Dec 1 '17 at 10:05
