Rules of Spark Sudoku

I am proud of this Sudoku variant and I believe that I am the first to offer you this kind of puzzle. This puzzle with its variety of form and size will please everyone.

The Spark Sudoku is a sudoku in a shape of star. It has two kinds of puzzle: the Spark where each point contains 16 cells and the Super Spark Sudoku where the points has 36 cells. Like as Sudoku, the goal is to place the number from 1 to 8 in each region, row and column (for the Super Spark it is the number 1 to 12). The particularity is that each row and column spread on two points of the star.They are 4 variants of Spark Sudoku:

  • Star with 5 points: pentagram.
  • Star with 6 points: hexagram.
  • Star with 7 points: heptagram.
  • Star with 8 points : octogram.

This is an example of pentagram  (5 points)
