Spot The Differences (Redux)  
So tonight I'm putting together a packet of "Not Sudoku" Puzzles for the WSC in two weeks (where it seems both Wayne Gould and Maki Kaji will be making guest appearances).

In putting together this hand-out, I realized it was time to fix the one puzzle that I had made overly difficult based on an error in my multi-cell subtraction considerations. I've made a much better subtraction-only puzzle that actually has a fair solution path.

I realize it should count as the default, but do you think putting something on the pdf about how digits can be repeated in cages would help? It goes without saying on the puzzle with the super huge multiplication cage (among others), but could alleviate possible confusion (on puzzles like this one, for example).

Sure - that's good. I've fixed the rules and will have that for ~50% of the printouts since I've already assembled 50 or so.
