Take Five

Take Five is a blend of Sudoku and Hanjie, from Trevor Truran. As with Hanjie, the clues for this Sudoku variant sit outside the grid. The five digits at the end of each row and column give the order, but not the precise place, of these digits within the corresponding row or column of the Sudoku puzzle. It is necessary to adopt solving techniques from both these puzzles to complete the puzzle.


The normal rules of Sudoku apply. In addition, the five numbers listed at the end of each row and column tell you the relative order in which these digits appear along the corresponding line. The five given numbers are not necessarily adjacent to each other, but they will appear in that order.
