Rearrange the tiles without rotating nor flipping them to form a $9 \times 9$ sudoku. Then solve the sudoku according to the standard rules.

enter image description here

Credits: the sudoku is one of the twelve schemas freely downloadable from websudoku.com for syndication. I made the tiling by myself.

EDIT: corrected picture

    $\begingroup$ Maybe I'm missing something, but I think the cell with the number 8 on the I-block should be moved one spot to the right? $\endgroup$ – jafe Apr 17 at 11:12

    $\begingroup$ @jafe - looking at the timestamps, you asked your question long before I completed mine, so you probably would have finished before me if you had received a quick answer. If you upload a completed version, I will withdraw mine. $\endgroup$ – Lanny Strack Apr 17 at 11:54

    $\begingroup$ @LannyStrack Actually I stopped when I spotted the discrepancy, so I have no solution to post :) $\endgroup$ – jafe Apr 17 at 12:10

    $\begingroup$ @melfnt - Yes, it is fine for me. Thanks. As for that square, the gap in the lower part of the dark blue piece is very conspicuous, and as I started to solve the puzzle, I immediately looked there to see which piece would fit. No piece could fit as-is without rotating or flipping, and piece "I" is the only one that came close to fitting. Piece "G' could also almost fit, but several changes were needed to make it fit, whereas only one small change was needed for piece "I" to fit there. $\endgroup$ – Lanny Strack Apr 17 at 13:03
