I haven't found too many places to get 16 x 16 puzzles, so I thank you for these, and look forward to doing them. And thanks for the range of difficulty, as I am trying to stretch my capabilities. The "tricky" ones do look mighty challenging!

I am a brand new player of Sudoku. I had finished with the entire book of puzzles from beginner to hard and at the end are few 16X16 games but I do not know where to start. I will like to ask, which is the best method to play and enjoy this type of puzzles?

I have started playing 16 x 16 puzzles and they are awesome and challenging. I read somewhere that the diagonal line of numbers from top left corner to bottom right corner and also from top right corner to bottom left corner must also contain numbers 1 to 16 only. Is this correct with the above puzzles. Thanks

A puzzle can take from 20 minutes to 2 hours to complete depending on its level and your experience.

The smallest number of starter clues on a sudoku puzzle is 17.
