**It seems that we were not, after all, the first
to compute this number: see the contribution from “QSCGZ” to
rec.puzzles in Sepember 2003** (spotted by Ed Russell, February 1st 2008).

### There are 5472730538 essentially different Sudoku grids (Ed Russell and Frazer Jarvis)

### There are 49 essentially different 2x3 Sudoku grids (Ed Russell and Frazer Jarvis)

(Note that the terminology refers to 6x6 grids divided into 2x3 boxes.)
See these calculations with the group of symmetries of a 2x3 Sudoku grid.

### There are 1673187 essentially different Sudoku 2x4 grids (Ed Russell)

(Note that the terminology refers to 8x8 grids divided into 2x4 boxes in the
obvious way.)
