Kakuro Game: Cross Sums
Also known as Cross Sums, Kakuro is a mix between a crossword and sudoku puzzle. Unlike a crossword puzzle where the clue is a word or phrase, a Kakuro clue is a number that the corresponding answer cells must add up to. That’s where the sudoku part comes in. Each clue has at least 2 and no more than 9 answer cells. Each answer cell must be a single digit (1-9). Duplicate digits are not allowed within a clue (4 = 1+3, 4 ≠ 2+2).
How to Play:
- The value for a cell must be 1-9
- The answer cells must add up to the clue
- Duplicate numbers are not allowed within a clue (4=1+3, 4≠2+2)
- Each puzzle has a unique solution that can be solved without guesswork
- The number 11 is a clue
- These 2 answer cells need to add up to 11
- Possible combinations for the horizontal (11) and vertical (3) clues
Start with clues that have only one combination such as 3=1+2, 4=1+3, 16=7+9, 17=8+9, 6=1+2+3, and so on.
Take advantage of the possible combinations area located above the puzzle:
This area shows all possible combinations for the vertical and horizontal clues for the current cell. Numbers already entered in the answer cells for a clue will be blue. Combinations no longer valid are grayed out. Looking at the example above, we can determine the remaining two cells for the vertical clue (20) will be 7+9.
Use fast select and drag to improve your speed.Fast select refers to selecting a single number regardless of how many numbers are currently selected within a cell.
