Have you ever done a Sudoku puzzle? Even if you have not yet played the game, you can learn it easily and fast.

Fill in the numbers from 1 to 9 into the empty spaces of the grid. Every column, every row, and every 3X3 box must end up containing the digits from 1 to 9. The rules are simple – fill in the squares so that all numbers from 1 to 9 are represented once per row.

Basic rules

Rules in playing the game are very simple:

• the puzzles are played over a 9x9 grid, divided in 3x3 subgrids.

• Begins the play with some given numerals from 1-9 that are placed in grid cells.

• A number can only appear once on each row.

• A numeral can only appear once on each column.

• Digit can only appear once on each region.

Now you now the basic rules in playing the game, but you’re really just starting the process of making solutions to how finish the game. There are some solutions methods that can help you and these are:

• Scanning- it can be performed from the very beginning and throughout the solution process. Scanning basically has two techniques, first the cross-hatching. Cross-hatching technique can identify which line in a particular region may contain a digit that can be eliminated. The second is counting the region, columns and rows in identifying missing numbers. Counting based upon the last digit discovered may actually speed up the corresponding search.

• Marking Up- the candidate numbers are simply written in subscript in the cell. The disadvantage of this is that some first puzzles are printed in magazines and newspapers which are usually small to accommodate many preferred numbers. Unlike to some newly designed Sudoku game board, all inputs are done electronically. You can also use a pattern of dots within the cell, wherein the position of the dot corresponds a number from 1-9. Dot notation can be an advantage to a sudoku that is printed in paper. If you're printing puzzles out, use a sharp pencil with an eraser.

• By Analysis- you can approach the game by either “candidate elimination or “what if”. In candidate elimination, numerals from one or more cells are eliminated and leaving just one choice. After each answer is placed, another scan can be done. You can check to see the effect of the contingencies. In “what if” approach, a cell can be placed with two candidate numbers then a guess should be made.

Difficulty ratings

Puzzles are ranked depending of rate of difficulty. For you to understand, the numbers that are given has nothing to do on a puzzle’s difficulty. A puzzle with less number of givens may be very easy for you to solve. A puzzle with more number of givens can still be very difficult for you to solve as the difficulty rate of the puzzle depends on the relevance and positioning of the given numerals rather than the number of given placed in the grids.

By playing the “fastest growing puzzle in the world”, you can be sure to challenge your way of thinking, reduce stress, fight the aging process - and have lots fun doing so.
