Sudoku Harakiri

Here is my first ever Sudoku Harakiri puzzle. Frankly, I don’t enjoy solving these puzzles, but I think that there might be some interest in these. So I created a few and picked one for you. Basically, it’s a double Samurai Sudoku puzzle: 8 classic sudoku sub-puzzles, which of course don’t have their own (unique) solutions but all together constitute a puzzle with a single solution.

    Where is the solution to this puzzle? I loved this one, but 3/4 through it I made a mistake, wanted to compare where, as after 2 days on it I don’t feel like starting from scratch again 🙂

    What a monster. Haven’t solved it yet. Anyway, can you take a look at the colour sudokus I made? I need some opinions on them.

    Well, I can’t solve it. I still like these type of puzzles though. Is this solvable?

    Sue, this Sudoku harakiri is surely soluble. You can’t solve each 9×9 square individually, but you must work on all 8 and use clues from one to solve cells in another.
