How to Play Sudoku
To play Sudoku, fill in the partial grid of numbers, ensuring that every row, column and 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9; if filled in correctly, there would be no repeats. To solve a Sudoku puzzle, use logic and process of elimination to rule out the digits that don't belong, until what you have left is the correct answer for each cell. Every Sudoku puzzle will have a unique (one and only one) solution.

Sudoku, or Suuji wa dokushin ni kagiru, is the number place puzzle that was popularized in Japan in the 1980s and 1990s and has since become a worldwide phenomenon, appearing in almost every newspaper in the English-speaking world. Sudoku transcends language barriers in that it uses numbers, and yet it doesn't require math skill, but Sudoku does require deductive reasoning and Sphinx-like concentration.
