This is an entry into the Fortnightly Topic Challenge #36
Here is a partially filled in Sudoku-like board involving the five vowels:
As with real Sudoku, no vowels in any 9-square box or along any 9-square line can be repeated. Now, since there's 5 vowels instead of 9 digits, there are just a few blank spaces, so here's the challenge:
- Fill in yellow squares with vowels to maintain the Sudoku-ness of the board
- Using every consonant except 'Q' once, fill in the grey squares such that every 3 letter span within each red box is a valid word. 20 consonants, 20 words ('Y' is a consonant here).
There is at least one solution.
The first solution of any kind gets the win and the check. Good Luck!
EDIT: The 'R' may be moved if desired and at your own peril.
