February Sudoku Challenger
Written by Mandorallen
This competition is now concluded. Please stay tuned for the results!

Spend some quality time with a loved one doing something new! This month's "Greater-than Sudoku" takes the puzzle one level farther - this time, no numbers are provided!

: "Fill in the grid so that every row, every column, and every six-square subsection contains the numbers 1 through 6. In greater-than Sudoku, each of the greater-than signs indicate the relationship between two neighboring numbers. Thus, a solution is only valid if all greater-than signs point from a larger number to a smaller one." There is only one solution to each puzzle. For more information on the original puzzle, visit http://www.sudoku.com/.
