Solution to the level 1 easy Sudoku for beginners game 10 Stage 1: Let's find the first few valid cells
We'll now solve the following level 1 easy Sudoku game 10.
Starting with scan for digit 1 following the conventional scan strategy breakthroughs we get are: R4C6 1 by scan for 1 in R5, R6, C5 -- R8C7 1 by scan in R9, C8, C9 -- R7C1 1 by scan in R8, R9 -- and lastly R1C2 1 by largest scan in R2, R3, C1, C3. Digit 1 is fully filled.
Next larger integer scan on 2 produces one valid cell only but we take it anyway: R6C9 2 by scan for 2 in R4, R5.
Scanning next for 3: R6C2 3 by scan in R4, R5. And that's all for 3. Scanning next for 4: R9C7 4 by scan in C8, C9 (or R7, R8). Again that's all for 4.
Scanning for 5: R1C5 5 by scan in R5, R6 -- R1C4 5 by scan in C5, C6 -- R2C3 5 by scan in R1, C1, C2 -- R3C9 5 by scan in R1, R2 -- lastly R9C8 5 by scan in R7, C9. Digit 5 fully filled.
Dutifully following the systematic scan strategy we'll next scan for digit 6: R1C9 6 by scan in C7, C8 -- R9C2 6 by scan in R8, C1, C3 -- R6C5 6 by scan in R5, C4 -- lastly R2C6 6 by scan in R1, C5 -- R6C4 7 by exception in R6. Digit 6 fully filled.
Following is the game status after taking the first stage actions.
Solution to the level 1 Sudoku for beginners game 10 Second stage
We'll not deviate from our conventional scan strategy and scan for next higher digit 7: R5C7 7 by scan in R4 -- R4C8 8 by exception in right middle major square -- R4C1 4 by exception in R4 -- R5C3 9 by exception in left middle major square -- R5C5 4 by exception in R5.
Falling back on scan strategy for scanning for smaller unfinished digits next scan will be for 4: R1C3 4 by scan in R2, R3, C1. And that's end of 4.
It is time for opportunistic scan as the 81 cells in the game are fairly filled: R9C1 9 by scan in C2, C3 -- R7C8 9 by scan in C9 -- R7C5 3 by exception in R7.
Opportunistic scan: R3C2 8 by scan in C1 -- R3C5 7 by exception in R3.
Scanning for 7: R9C6 7 by scan in C4, C5 -- R1C6 2 by exception in C6 -- R2C5 8 by exception in top middle major square -- R8C5 2 by exception in C5 - R8C2 7 by a pending exception in C2.
Game status at this stage is shown below.

Opportunistic scan R9C3 2 by scan for 2 in R8 -- R8C3 3 by exception in C3 and bottom left major square -- R9C9 3 by scan for 3 in R8 -- R8C9 8 by exception in C9 and bottom right major square -- R8C4 9 by exception in R8 -- R9C4 8 by exception in R9, C4 and bottom middle major square.
Even at this very late stage there is scope for row column cross-scan: R2C8 2 by row column cross-scan for 2 in R1, C7 -- R1C8 7 by exception in C8 -- R1C7 8 by scan for 8 in R2 -- R2C7 3 by exception in C7 as well as in top right major square -- R2C1 7 by exception in R2 -- R1C1 3 by exception in the whole game.
