The challenging part of the puzzle should be detangling the logic, not keeping way-too-similar strings of numbers straight. Also on my hate list for similar...

I find I solve most puzzles faster if I don't bother marking anything in the lower section of the grid except for X=Y type clues. That isn't always possible, but I probably manage it 90% of the...

I suppose it depends on how accessible you want your puzzle to be, especially for non-native speakers. And how good you are at making sure the clues are unambiguous. Personally, I like those kinds...
