    Thank you for the Sunday walk-throughs; I look forward to them to see what logical short cuts I may have missed. With the Cyclops puzzle I noticed a counting trick that helps. There are 60 clues in all, so 30 pairs. 29 clues are 1 or 2, which must be the smaller of 29 pairs. That leaves a last pair not containing 1 or 2, which turns out to be the 3-5 pair in bottom right. So when it comes to deciding whether the 4 near the top joins to 1 or 6, it has to be 1.
