10,000 Challenge Puzzles

Here are some challenging puzzles with various miscellaneous properties. Many of these may be the most challenging Sudoku puzzles you’ll find.

Puzzles #1 to #40 all have 20 seed values, and 2-fold rotational symmetry. These puzzles take a long time to create, roughly 100 puzzles per day. I got impatient after 4000 puzzles.

Puzzles #41 to #103 are nonomino puzzles, but these are tougher than the others. These have 21 or fewer seed values, and many of them require all of the advanced solving techniques.

And finally, #104 is a group of regular puzzles of varying difficulty, each with 19 seed values. These take a long time to produce, so I won’t be posting very many of these.
