HOW TO PLAY SUDOKU?

Regions

Sudoku is played over a 4x4 grid, divided to 3x3 sub grids called "regions
Sudoku begins with some of the grid cells already filled with numbers

Number can appear only once on each row

HOW ABOUT MILES


KILLER SUDOKU?

The rules for Killer Sudoku are simple. The rules for regular sudoku apply, with one additional rule: The
sum of the cells in a cage must equal the total given for the cage. Each digit in the cage must be unique.
As in regular sudoku, every cell in each row, column, and nonet must contain a unique digit. In other
words, each row, column, and nonet must contain all the digits from one to nine.
The values of the cells a cage must sum up to the total for that cage.
The values of the cells in a cage must be unique.

CELL

A single box. It can contain any digit from one to nine.

ROW

A horizontal group of nine cells.Each cell in the group must contain different digit.

COLLUMN

A vertical group of nine cells.Each cell in the group must contain different digit.

Nonet

A 3x3 grid of cells.Each cell in the nonet must contain different digit.

CAGE

A group of cells surrounded by a dashed line. The values of the cells in a cage must sum up to the total specified in the upper right of the cage.
The values in a cage must be unique even if the rules of regular sudoku would allow for duplicates. For example, the cells labeled 'a' and 'b' in
the figure cannot have the same value.

HOW TO PLAY OUTSIDE


SUDOKU?

Place numbers in the grid such that each row, column


and 3x3 box contain the numbers 1 to 9. Outside cells
must be inserted in one of the first three cells of the
row or column as seen from that direction.

FOR ADDOKU?

To solve an Addoku, use only the numbers from 1 to 9. The numbers in squares linked by a coloured line must add up to the total
given in the top left-hand corner of the set of linked squares. No individual number is repeated in any of these sets of linked
squares.
Similar to Sudoku, the numbers 1 to 9 must also appear in:
Each of the nine vertical columns
Each of the nine horizontal row
Each of the nine 3 x 3 boxes

EXAMPLE:

AND NOW FOR


CONSECUTIVE SUDOKU?

A Consecutive Sudoku puzzle consists ofa standard Sudokugrid with the addition of white "consecutive markers" between
certain squares. These indicate that the squares areconsecutive- meaning that the numbers in the two squares have a
numerical difference of '1'. For example: 1 and 2 are consecutive, as are 4 and 5. Conversely 3 and 5 arenotconsecutive.To
solve the puzzle you must place 1 to 9, or 1 to whatever the size of the puzzle is, once each into every row, column and boldlined rectangle while also obeying the consecutive markers.
What'sreally importantto note is thatallconsecutive markers are given, soif there is no marker between two
squares then they arenotconsecutive.

Look at the solved puzzle on the left. The 5 at


the top-left has a bar between it and the 4
because they are consecutive, but it is not
consecutive with the 2 below so there is no
bar.
Every Consecutive Sudoku puzzle only ever has
one possible solution, and it can always be
reached via reasonable logical deduction. In
other words, guessing is never required.
Consecutive Sudoku puzzles on puzzlemix
appear at a wide range of sizes and
difficulties. Usually they are 6x6, 8x8 or 9x9, in
which case you must place 1-6, 1-8 or 1-9 once
each into every row, column and bold-lined
rectangle. These bold-lined rectangles are 2x3
for 6x6 puzzles, 4x2 for 8x8 puzzles and they
are 3x3 for 9x9 puzzles.

AND LAST, WHAT IS TWODOTS SUDOKU

Place a digit from 1 to 9 into each of the empty squares so that each digit appears
exactly once in each of the rows, columns and the nine outlined 3x3 regions.
If absolute difference between two digits in neighboring cells equals 1, then they
are separated by a white dot. If the digit is a half of digit in the neighboring cell,
then they are separated by black dot. The dot between 1 and 2 can be either white
or black.
