Master Sudoku glitch

[Post New]by spiffyone on Jul 23, 11 4:06 PM
my problem is the master sudoku puzzle on junior detective. i've completed the middle block and went on to solve the box on the bottom left. I found that i had made a mistake BUT i can't erase anything in the middle box!! i assumed the middle one was correct since it locked in and won't let me erase, but now it's impossible to solve the puzzle.

I have tried clicking on both erase and erase all on the middle block. it's just a round magnifying glass (not a blue hand) i can't click on anything there. the whole grid seems to be locked in. is there anything i can do or do i have to start the whole game over?

I played as junior detective and never had any problems, you need to save every so often just incase you need to restart. Good Luck.

I do save my game a lot. Every 10 minutes or so. I don't think that would keep part of the game from freezing up if there is a problem, would it?

<hooray!> I figured it out. The center puzzle was locked and I couldn't erase or change any of the numbers... So I went to one of the corners puzzles and clicked erase all. I lost all of the work I had done on it but it unlocked the center puzzle. Thanks.

Well I made a mistake in the top left puzzle. I'm playing Senior and it took me forever! I assumed it was correct and I'd find out what to do with it later so I continued playing. I've been playing the game for hours and done a million and one things. The game hasn't mentioned anything about the puzzle and what do with it so I peaked at a walkthrough and it said to put it in the envelope in my room. I tried and it wouldn't let me so I rechecked the puzzle and noticed the mistake. It's just 2 numbers that are switched. I can't erase them?? If you make a mistake on the puzzle Nancy should say something or you should be able to correct it! I have to erase the whole thing? grrrrr

Nevermind, I erased the top left puzzle after writing down all the numbers and filled it in again! I was NOT going to do that again! Of course, the 2 numbers I had to switch were in the bottom right corner so I had to do the middle puzzle again too! wheww!

Let this be a lesson to everybody. Nancy must say something like: "Alright, I'm pretty good at this!" I forget exactly what she says already?! If she doesn't say anything....it's wrong and do NOT continue playing!

Ok now I'm talking to myself. Why didn't the numbers change in the middle puzzle when I changed the numbers in the top left puzzle? It was the shared bottom right corner! hmmmm that makes no sense?

Well I'm a blonde (fake) too and it took me forever to do this puzzle. I'm usually good at puzzles but this was a pain. You can't repeat any numbers 1-9 all the way across, down or in the individual square. There's 9 squares within the square I'm not very good at explaining things either. If you're really stuck, check out a walkthrough. They may be able to explain it better and if you lose all patience, just copy the answer. Maybe practice with the ones in the puzzle book what's his name? gave you first.

Not that it matters, since no one answered joancast, but I'm in the same predicament.

I'm playing the game in Junior mode and I finished the puzzle, but Nancy hasn't said anything. So I checked my answers against the answers in a walkthrough I found, and I had all of the numbers right in the puzzle.

What do I do now? Nancy hasn't said anything, I can't put the puzzle in the envelope in my room to send it, I've tried talking to George and Bess, but I seem to be oddly stuck.

Please help!

Yes, I have the solution, I've checked my answers on multiple websites. The issue is that I have the correct answer, and still can't seem to progress in the game. I can't mail the puzzle, or do anything with it.
