### Sunday Stumper: Kakuro (Subset) by Prasanna Seshadri

This year, we have started to have some extra difficult Sunday Stumpers, about once a month. These will be quite tough puzzles, but with a logical path to be found (and solution videos to help). This sixth Sunday Stumper is a Kakuro puzzle with some extra clue shadings to indicate connected digit subsets for some of the entries.

Theme: Eye

Author/Opus: This is the 209th puzzle from our contributing puzzlemaster Prasanna Seshadri.

Rules: Standard Kakuro Rules. Also, whenever two multi-digit entries intersect and the set of digits in one entry is a subset of the set of digits in the other entry, the cell preceding each of those entries (either giving the entry’s clue or indicating that the entry is unclued) is shaded in gray. A shaded cell may be shaded because of its Across entry, Down entry, or both. Any clue cell that is not shaded does not have a multi-digit entry intersecting its Across or Down entries with a shared subset of digits. Any set of digits is considered a subset of itself.

Difficulty: 5 stars
