This Kakuro puzzle is ideal for anyone who is a beginner to this fantastic little teaser. I guarantee your number skills will improve the more of these puzzles are attempted.
The rules are very simple:
- Just like a crossword, fill in the boxes,
- Each box must contain a number from 1-9 and each run of boxes must add up to the total shown on the left or above,
- You cannot use the same digits in each run, so if a total of 4 is to be completed in 2 boxes, they must be made up of either 3+1 or 1+3 and not 2+2.
