Here's a method that will net you over 2000 experience a puzzle, but in order to do it, you need to have at least two powerup slots, which should come from just beating all 9 puzzles at least once.

For your two powerups, you're going to want to choose the Gamble powerup and the XP Bonus powerup. I had both of these powerups and two powerup slots by the time I had around 10,000 experience from just playing the game for fun.

Next, you're going to want to play an Intense Lightning Round. Once the game starts, go to your handy dandy sudoku solver ( and input the puzzle that's on your screen. Once the site solves it, start inputting the numbers. Once the puzzle is completed, you will get the following:

750 xp - puzzle completed
375 xp - no powerups used
187 xp - no pencil used
375 xp - gamble bonus
375 xp - bonus
TOTAL: 2062 xp

For the people that reported they were having issues getting the "no powerups used" bonus, as long as you don't actually click the powerup buttons while you're in the puzzle, you should get the bonus as pointed out by OzzysShadyDisco in the comments.

A word of advice when using this method: be careful what numbers and what boxes you are choosing! If you put the wrong number in the wrong box, the puzzle will automatically fail you and only give you partial xp. That's the only downside to this method (and it happened to me numerous times) so just take your time and you'll get 2000+ xp a puzzle!
