I was wondering if anyone else has tried this? I asked ChatGPT to create me a sudoku puzzle and it did. Then I decided to see what would happen if I gave it some random rules to use while creating the puzzle and it seemed to work. Here is a screenshot and (link to the screenshot in case it doesn't show) and the puzzle it created using the random rules I gave it.

I wonder how complicated you could make the rules and have it still understand them and I wonder if the puzzle it made is actually solvable with the ruleset.

Not sure if people are already talking about this but I didn't get any results from searching the forums for similar topics.

Just something I thought was interesting, not to take away from the fact that setting a sudoku puzzle is fun in and of itself and to those who can do that and enjoy it, my hats off to you, but for those who might have some ideas but don't know how to set or have the time to learn, this could be a way to create puzzles using unique rulesets.

*EDIT: I asked it to make another sudoku, a tougher one, and gave it more advanced rules. It made a 1-6 digit sudoku that is supposedly tough to solve. Note the ruleset I gave it and it seemed to understand and have no issue making it. Hopefully, it is actually solvable... It is located here: https://ibb.co/P6vxNfg (Note that it says the puzzle has only 6 given digits but actually has 0 given digits and instead has 9 "E" and "O" which represent EVEN/ODD. I asked it about this and it apologized and said that there are no given digits and that it is still possible to solve... It looks impossible to me, but I'm an amateur. I did notice that all of the Os are a knight's move away so maybe there is trick there?) It includes the " no same number can be a knight's move away" constraint and no 1's can be next to a 9, not including diagonally (which I made before I knew it was going to make a 1-6 digit sudoku and since there are no 9s that rule can just be ignored lol).

I think the main thing I forgot to tell it is to make sure it has a unique solution, or word it "The sudoku should only have one possible solution". I have a feeling that those puzzles have multiple possible solutions.

Let me know what you guys and gals think of this (and if either puzzle is possible to solve or not, especially the second one!) Thanks!
