Why Install?

Sudoku is a top-rated puzzle game. Put quite simply, Sudoku is a number placement puzzle that is based on logic. The goal is to fill a grid made up of nine rows and nine columns with numbers between 1 and 9.

Each puzzle always starts out with a couple of the cells being filled with numbers. The filled cells act as a keystone to what numbers a player will fill the rest of the cells with. It is important to emphasize the fact that no number between 1 and 9 can be repeated in any row, column, or grid. However, numbers can be repeated along diagonals. A grid is a section of the entire puzzle consisting of 3 rows and 3 columns.

There are two major techniques of solving a Sudoku puzzle. One is crosshatching where a player focuses on a single grid. With the one selected grid, a player tries to fill in numbers between 1 and 9, ensuring that each number only appears once in the entire row or column.

Another prevalent technique is called Penciling In. In this technique, a player first has to list all the possible numbers that can go into each empty cell of the puzzle. After listing down the possible outcomes, a player uses the crosshatching technique to cross off all candidates that cannot go into a certain cell. Most players prefer crosshatching since penciling in technique seems to have a lot of work.
