New puzzle creator
#1
Hello All,

Because I do not speak german, I will post in English. I recently found an interest in the creation of sudokus, however I would prefer to create sudokus with constraints and a form of intelligence.

On Logic masters I found many puzzles with barely any digets given at the start o the puzzle, for which a specific path is necessary to solve the sudoku. I was wondering, what is the best approach to create such puzzles? Is it top-down, start with a solution and back track your way through the puzzle, or do you start blank and work your way up. All tips to get me started are much appreciated.

Hello Twan2797,
I already looked yesterday for a good answer to your good question. That means, I searched for it here in the forum, because I know the right ideas and thoughts about this topic have already been discussed here.
Somewhere. Sometime. But I can't find it.
Maybe I will remember correctly, who was part of this discussion. Or someone else gives the right links. Or we start this topic here anew  Square .
And: Many of us can understand a good part Dutch, but certainly English is more useful for the international communication here  Smile .

For some reason I wrote in english and it changed to dutch, no clue how. I have translated it to english now.

I searched the forums as well, as I thought it must've been discussed previously, however no result either. I look forward to create a new discussion on this.

I usually start from a blank grid and that is the recommended method if you want this kind of "linear logical flow" and limited clues. However, there is one exception: if you know that there are very limited solutions, you should either start building towards a specific solution you know or make sure there is a solution left at every step (e.g. by using a solver). Non-Consecutive is an example for a constraint that is very hard to accomplish for a full grid without such tricks.

In general, you can write whole books about this topic. A good recommendation is "Puzzlecraft" by Thomas Snyder and Mike Selinker. The original printed version seems to be out of stock and very expensive, but I remember that there was a revised digital version with additional chapters available here: http://lonesharkgames.com/puzzlecraft-ho...of-puzzle/
There are also a lot of setter videos out there nowadays where they build a puzzle from scratch or revise their ideas.
