Helmut Postl:*"This is an excellent puzzle. First the
idea of combining a polyomino puzzle with sudoku, and next the fine
coincidence that the pentominoes and tetrominoes together have 80 cells,
just one less than a sudoku board. Like George, I cut out the pieces from
cardboard. To better recognize the numbers used and those still missing in a
row, column or box, I wrote the odd numbers in green and the even ones in
red. That helped a lot (especially in distinguishing the 6 and 9 when the
pieces lay upside down or on the side). I solved the puzzle without using
any of your given hints."
*George Sicherman:

I seldom work with physical pieces, but I am going to cut this one out. I have friends who (like me) make crossword sudoku puzzles. I think they will like this too."

"The solution to Peter Jeuken's puzzle is unique. Of course I used a computer to prove it!"

Have fun! And please put it on your site so that the others will have fun, too."
