Daily League Sudoku #26: Jigsaw Killer Sudoku

This weekend a combination of two standard Sudoku variants. Although I wouldn't say it's a standard puzzle for either variant. When combining different puzzle types or variants, I think it's important to make sure they come into play together and aren't just in the puzzle together. So for this puzzle I chose a cage layout that could never work in a standard Killer Sudoku, as it could never be unique. But the Jigsaw layout allows you to use this cage layout. This puzzle also uses a tricky set of opening moves that you wouldn't normally see in a Killer Sudoku. I think this is again a harder puzzle and the opening will probably stump a few people, but it's clear logic once you find it. I promise next week I'll come with an easier puzzle. Enjoy!

Rules for Sudoku

Instead of given numbers, you now have a few dashed cages. The number in the cage indicates the sum of the digits in the cage, Digits can't be repeated in any dashed cage.
