How to Play Sudoku

Sudoku is easy to learn, but difficult to master. Here are some tips and strategies to get any beginner started:

-Sudoku is usually played on a 9×9 grid. Each space needs to be filled with the numbers 1-9. The challenge lies in not repeating any numbers with the row, column or square.
-Easy sudoku puzzles have more numbers added to the grid, making it easier to solve the challenge.
-Numbers aside, Sudoku really isn’t a math game. Rather, it’s based on logic, so guessing won’t get you very far. In fact, each Sudoku puzzle has only a single solution.
-Patience is key to Sudoku! If you get stuck or need to take a break, our puzzles will automatically save so you can return right where you left off.
