Friday Puzzles #139

So no 2012 puzzle this, and maybe some readers will be disappointed to see Kakuro this week. Also, it’s not technically Friday anymore (by a few minutes, but let’s not quibble over silly details like that) so I suppose an apology is due there as well.

Nevertheless, Kakuro is a type I really like, and I think there is plenty of opportunity to be playful with the type from a constructor’s point of view. I must say I quite enjoyed putting this puzzle together, but then again I’m a bad, bad person. Enjoy!

#170 Kakuro – rated medium

    Erm, I’ve got horribly stuck somewhere. Would I get caught if I generalize?(you know what I mean).

  2. Try asking your favourite search engine “what do they say about assumption?”

    I see what you mean. But now I’m sure this one has a glitch. Can you check it again? Solved it without using the 25 in R5C3 and got some other sum for that.

    You’re not a not a bad person, you’re just rather odd.
