(Aside: I am known for Sarcasm)

This is called Samurai Sudoku. It is composed of five overlapping Sudoku grids that are solved simultaneously. The only difference in how we solve this problem and how we solve normal Sudoku is in how many Variables and Constraints we deal with- the methods for finding satisfying assignments stay the same. That said, our methods have failed miserably at it. It makes me sad :(
