30:51 (Par for me for Sudoku)

• I liked the way the arrows overlapped at the tips! That was visually nice and gave it a little mathematical interest too.

As usual, I tried to solve as if it was a themo (doesn’t work) before re-reading the arrow rules. I love both types but don’t do them enough to remember…

Thanks for all your comments and feedback. You see i actually wanted to create some new design in arrow Sudoku. So started with trying to fit pentagon and then star but neither worked due to symmetry issues. Then got idea of combining both so placed circles like similar to pentagon and tried to gave star shape with arrows as much possible. And it worked out well :). Also to have common cells was one of the idea as that makes all the arrows linked to each other. Hope you all enjoyed it 🙂

Yes, I liked the way the common cells came into play. Nicely done.
