first one i tried. very disappointed. turns out to have about a dozen correct answers. am wondering if all are keyed into the answer bot?

not going to register to find out.

• drsudoku says:

There is exactly one answer. It may be possible you are not understanding the rules (stars cannot be in adjacent cells including diagonally adjacent cells — the diagonal part is sometimes missed).
