The thing is, if they had offered different puzzles, people would complain that the winners received easier puzzles. There would probably be lawsuits against even randomized puzzles, unless it was explicitly described in the fine print (which I imagine is quite extensive and not read by most contestants).

I agree. It was a lose/lose situation.

We saw that in the original games. Some people thought they had hard puzzles that took a really long time, and others went quickly.

I went back and replayed the sudokus and found some at the same level went faster than others.

I expected us all to get the same puzzles, I just figured peoples desire to win would prevent them from telling everyone else the answers.

Either way, I'm glad I did it and glad that I could do it on my own.
