Su Doku just got nastier

If you are still addicted to Su Doku, The Times has recently started publishing a new and nasty twist to the puzzle.

I have saved a scanned copy of Saturday's puzzle at although it will only be there for a short time (I have no great wish to be arrested for puzzle-napping or other copyright violations, so let me know when you have it, and I'll remove it).

The twist is that there are now five intersecting traditional puzzles. The corner 3x3 boxes of the centre puzzle are the same as the opposite corner 3x3 boxes of the four puzzles that intersect.

The same rules still apply to each of the 9x9 grids, and it might be easier in that you can use information from two puzzles to build the corner squares of the centre puzzle.

The 'A','B','C', and 'D' squares are the squares which represent the competition answers, which is now closed.

Yeah that can be
a) Fun
b) Irritating

Should we have an H2G2 Sudoku?
