Daily Kendoku (CanCan, SquareWisdom) #4

After a few Kendoku variants thay I’ve posted in the last 7 days, today I post my first classic Kendoku puzzle. However, it does have one special property – see if you can find what it is. Again, there are two versions of the same puzzle: an easier one with all operators filled in and a more difficult one with very few operators. Choose the one you prefer.

The Reduced Operators version of CalcuDoku is here.

These puzzles are also available to newspapers, magazines and other publishers. Be the first to have my CalcuDoku puzzles printed!

You can use my CalcuDoku Calculator to help you out with the possible combinations for a cage.

Enjoy! Questions, comments and suggestions are more than welcome!

    Hello, can you please tell me if numbers can be repeated in the cages in this version?
    Thanks a lot!

    Yes, Sophia, repeats are allowed.

    Done it (from the reduced operators version), but can’t see any special property?

    No 9s!

    There are no 9s, that’s true, but that’s because it’s a 8×8 puzzle…

    You must always use only numbers from 1 to the size of that puzzle.

    So that’s not it. It does have one interesting property, though.

    I thought that was a bit obvious, so back to the drawing board! Thanks for changing the division symbol.

    I can’t see any particularly interesting property other than the “cages” being 180 degree symmetrical.

    Is the property about the solution cell values or the cages? 😕

    Ok, it’s nothing very smart, it’s just that there are no additions in this puzzle.

    It’s actually quite special, that it was the complete opposite to traditional killer puzzles. 🙂

    However, I spent a lot of time looking for properties about the actual cell values (e.g. NC, X, DG). 🙁
