What is Sudoku
Sudoku is a Japanese number puzzle in which the player had to in fill in each row, column and 3x3 box of a given playing field so that they each contain every number between 1 and 9. The trick is that each number can only appear once in each row, column and 3x3 box.
Place the first numbered wooden pegs in the playing field according to the instructions provided in the booklet. Then fill in the remaining empty holes yourself with the remaining pegs. When you have succeeded in placing all 81 wooden pegs so that the numbers 1-9 are only found ONCE in each row, column and 3x3 box, you have succeeded in solving the puzzle.
Solving Sudoku on the stylish wooden playing board is made a little more challenging by the fact that you can't write notes in the margins as you might usually do. This might be a little unusual at first, but is good way to train the brain, and the various puzzles are not impossible to solve without a paper and pen.
Start with easy Sudoku puzzles and work your way up gradually through the difficulty levels. Sometimes it can take time before you find the next number, so it's important to have a little patience.
There are a couple of basic Sudoku techniques that can be good to know and that can make solving Sudoku puzzles easier. Some good basic tricks are to focus on a row, box or column that already has 5 or more pre-filled numbers. It is then usually possible to find one or more spots that have limited possible solutions. That is, they can only contain two or hopefully only one number, which you can then put down.
For those who are interested, there is lots of information online on how you can use more advanced techniques, such as X-wing and Y-wing techniques.
