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.
Brain related strategy and online gaming
The strategy behind Sudoku is relatively simple; however this is highly dependent on the format of the game and the grid of numbers which remain to be solved. Sudoku is challenging and is often compared to an online poker tournament in terms of its difficulty and the focus that is required in order to successfully complete. Sudoku is one of Japanís most influential brain-related strategy games and is a huge success worldwide. Sudoku puzzles are unique and can only be completed with a single solution, unlike many other strategy games which generally allow you to complete with numerous solutions, similar to the Rubikís Cube or a crossword puzzle.
