Solution: Here’s how to solve: 1: 2: 3: 4: From here, the solution can be found by working downwards! Nice puzzle!


Solved sudoku (nothing fancy, just plain logical deduction): $$ \begin{array}{c|ccc|ccc|ccc|} & C1 & C2 & C3 \ & C4 & C5 & C6 \ & C7 & C8 & C9 \\ \hline R1 & 3 & 6 & 2 \ & 8 & 5 & 7 \ & 1 & 9 & 4 \\ R2 & 5 & 1 & 7 \ & 2 & 9 & 4 \ & 6 & ...

Unless I've made a mistake (which very well could be the case), this demonstrates at least two solutions to the puzzle. (I've highlighted 1s, 2s, and 3s for easier checking.)
