Took me way too long. I spent 90 minutes on this thing. Lots of overlooked obvious numbers on my part...

Really enjoyed this puzzle. Very clever using the 12x12 grid to fit kakuro clues in. And not too difficult, even though it did take a while.

Really liked this. Awesome work Mark. Once I have a spare hour, I'm printing this off and giving it a go.

I've apparently been well trained by this videos, because my first instinct was shade non-zeroes as well.

I love kakuro and sudoku variants, what a combination this is! The zero really does add a whole other level of difficulty for my brain's usual processes. I kept making silly errors and had to re-start twice, but finally conquered it, whew!

Finished in 45 minutes ... great idea for a puzzle that makes you think a bit differently, but is still perfectly accessible without too much in the way of mental gymnastics.

28 minute solve. It was going very badly until I remembered it's a sudoku. After that it was pretty straightforward (by CTC standards) and lots of fun and the bonus of the zero mucking up all the usual possibilities for sums. Pro tip: Don't try to solve this puzzle just as a kakuro. It won't work.

I got so disheartened when I finally finished and it didn't look right to the check function, I scoured it up and looked for any mistakes. The biggest sigh of relief when I watched your solve to see the solution I had work.

The dry delivery of the whole, "zero to nine adds to 45" revelation had me laughing for ages

So numbers from 0 to 9 also adds up to 45 ? CTC boom knowledge.

Mark: if you select the "color" tab and double click any cell, all cells with that coloring get highlighted.

Was able to tackle it in 30:15. I'm a big fan of Kakuro, but the '0' threw me off after having lots of the sums automatically in my head not work in this case. :) Really fun puzzle!

I'm not wanting to complain, but Mark's and Simon's pronunciation of "kakuro" is a little painful to my ears. While I don't expect an Englishman to pronounce the word exactly as a native speaker of Japanese would, I think it would be really nice if M&S could get a little closer to the Japanese pronunciation. My advice for doing so: do not place stress on the "ku" syllable. If anything, de-emphasize it; this syllable is spoken very quickly in Japanese. A cheat for a native English speaker which gets close to the Japanese pronunciation is to stress the first syllable only, and not the others. For reference, you can hear a native speaker of Japanese clearly pronounce the word at the 0:11 in this video, and once again about four seconds after that: irpost.info/face/fy-lm-h-y/3m3AsrKZl424rmo.html. Cheers.

The 3 couldn’t go in column 8 because the ‘outies’ in that column sum to 9 and he had worked out earlier what could go at the top of the column.

I also read the 11 as a 36 pair on my solve! What a strange coincidence. I suppose the 58 looks enough like a 36.

Simon left us without the secret, but Mark added a 0 and gave us the knowledge we needed for the day.

No other media both amazes and frustrates me as much as a CTC video. The rollercoaster of "these guys are geniouses on another level :O" straight to "LOOK AT THE BLOODY FOUR!!!" will never get old
boomstand پیش 11 روز
not only was the 4 in the column not enough, but then also the 2-cell clue adding to 7, already containing a 7... he gets the 0 by solving the rest of the box 10 minutes later! This puzzle was difficult to scan everywhere, so much going on at once after you get going

srwapo پیش 11 روز
49 minutes. First one of these that I didn't complete suck at! I ended up doing a lot of coloring to keep track of where the 0's could be or couldn't be, which helped with the way I think. I found scanning really difficult, for some reason.

Mark's keyboard use is the most satisfying sound I have ever heard a keyboard make.
spaceLem پیش 9 روز
I find Mark's keyboard sounds very squashy, whereas Simon's keyboard has a wonderful clean click. I'm sure Simon as a gamer is using a mechanical keyboard, and I'd love to find out what kind of keys he uses.

46:18 for me, it's easy to start with the missing clues for rows and columns, but then quite confusing to use the 0 where we are not used to. I'm very surprised how Mark is still quick despite that. Really liked this idea, very innovative

Tom Groot Kormelink پیش 11 روز
Beautiful puzzle! Thanks for solving and sharing, Mark. To make the solve a bit easier: - The top clues of the first 3 columns give 10 cells to sum up to 50. The nine cells in the first box must sum to 42 (because of the 3 in R4C1), so R5C3 is an 8. - Same can be done for the bottom clues of the last 3 columns, giving a 5 in R8C10.
