How to Play Sudoku Puzzles
Sudoku is a logic puzzle. Logic puzzles require that you apply specific solving techniques in order to finish successfully. A Sudoku puzzle game begins with a board that is sparingly filled with numbers. These numbers typically range from one to nine. The size of a Sudoku board can vary with the most common size being 9x9. Most of the Sudoku puzzles to print are 9x9. You start to play by filling in numbers. The numbers one through nine can only appear once horizontally, vertically, and in sections of nine. The object is to solve the entire Sudoku puzzle correctly. It is important to remember that numbers can not repeat. Check your Sudoku answers once you have completed the game to make sure you solved the puzzle correctly.
There are a number of Sudoku strategies. A solid Sudoku strategy will help you solve a puzzle successfully in the fastest amount of time possible. My favorite Sudoku strategy is very basic and easy to learn. You start by analyzing the Sudoku board. Look for the areas on the board where the most amount of numbers are given to you. These are the columns or boxes you should begin working with. As you start to fill in the board it will get easier as one solved block will help you finish the rest of the puzzle. This is a simple strategy also used in solving crossword puzzles. Another Sudoku trick would be to use a pencil when solving. Write in all possible numbers in each of the empty blocks. Then erase them 1 by 1 using the process of elimination. This strategy takes longer but will produce a higher rate of correct blocks. Use these Sudoku solving techniques or come up with your own.
Sudoku puzzle boards have different sizes. A 9x9 Sudoku grid is probably the most popular followed by the 3x3 puzzle board. I have heard of unusual Sudoku boards as well. There have been 4x4, 7x7, 25x25, 12x12, and 16x16 Sudoku puzzles. Kids and people just starting out will appreciate the 3x3 Sudoku grid. It is the easiest to solve and keeps the game streamlined. Once you have enough knowledge on how to do Sudoku you may want to upgrade to the 9x9 puzzle board. The 9x9 printable Sudoku puzzles are the size mainly used on this website. 12x12, 16x16, and 25x25 are good practice for competitive Sudoku players.
