Advent Calendar – Dec 12

It’s the end of the week, and that means today’s puzzle is going to be a little bit tougher. It’s a combination of star battle and sandwich sudoku (along with irregular regions for the standard puzzle). Both the standard and family puzzles will be larger grids than normal, because you will be placing 2 stars in each row/column/box in addition to the normal digits (1-9 or 1-6).

Note that for the family version of the puzzle, normal star battle restrictions on adjacent stars do not apply.

If you are subscribed to the standard or family advent calendars, you’ll find links to the pdfs of today’s puzzle below.

And for an introduction to sandwich sudoku and star battles, check out today’s video:

  1. Just a couple of weeks ago, I had the EXACT same idea, to do a sandwich sudoku/star battle hybrid with jigsaw/irregular cages. I am not at all an experienced setter, so I am happy to try my idea but set by someone who knows what they’re doing 🙂
