At first, great pzzl! I can see many variations to come!
Second, pls check str8ts @ newspaper Trouw of today 01-11-09 http://www.trouw.nl/ontspanning/article1930461.ece/Straigth.html
I'm not able to solve this str8ts because if u look at column 6 the're is an eight white field compartment and one black. Since there is a 1 in the white compartment the highest number to fill out is 8. This puts a 9 in the only black compartment A6. But, look at A9, there is allready a 9 as a clue.
Pls advise ..
Regards JW

Don't try and fill in the black cells! They may or may not resolve to one number but itís a mistake to try and fill them. On the player you cannot edit that cell. The puzzle does not require unqiue numbers or any number in black cells - other than the given clues - try not to think of Sudoku. The only correspondance with sudoku is unique in rows and columns - but in white cells only.

I love str8ts. It's gr8 to have a new puzzle. When are they going to be in print? Would love to try them in the classroom (I'm a secondary school maths teacher)

Jeff Widderich writes (11-Jan-2009):
Going to be in newspapers just as soon as we can persuade the editors!

I am SO addicted to Str8ts!! Is there any hope of purchasing a large package (with all the solver features), or perhaps even just membership to an online archive of puzzles? lol one a day just isn't enough!

Thanks for a great game!!

Hi. Yes, we will be making a pack of 50 puzzles, one pack per month. I'm working on the puzzles at this moment. Hopefully starting in Febuary

In the Daily Str8ts puzzle, why do the blacked out squares print clear rather than black?

Jeff Widderich writes (4-Jan-2009):
Good question, I've tested this on Firefox and it seems to be fine. But with Internet Exploder there is a setting for this. I've created a help page

Printing the Daily Str8ts

Feedback appreciated

Something is not clear with respect to the rules for black fields. These cannot be filled with numbers, but I supposed that their their possible content should obey the strict rule that each number can only appear once in each row and column. In the solution of e.g. puzzle #48 of January 4th this rule is clearly violated: in the solution the content of square G8 becomes 1, whereas the black square D8 should carry 1 according to the strict rule. So under the strict rule the puzzle has no solution. Therefore a relaxed rule should explicitly be added with respect to the black squares, which will make the puzzles less attractive (in my opinion!).
Kind regards,
Jos Jansen

Jeff Widderich writes (4-Jan-2009):
Hi Jos Thanks for getting in touch. Allow me to re-quote your quote of the rules on black cells - "strict rule that each number CAN only appear once in each row and column" - This does not imply ALL numbers MUST appear - merely that those numbers which do appear can't repeat in rows and columns. The rule is sudoku-esque but its not exactly the same. Itís a constraint but we donít expect you to find nor require values in black cells (unless we're given a clue) since most black cells could have more than one number (including those with clues). Hopefully you'll find the puzzle a little easier now you donít have to worry about 'hidden black cell values'.

On a side note, we've really sweated on the rules because of space conciderations in newspapers and so on, so if you have a better wording we'd be very pleased to read it.

Best wishes for the new year
