Chapter 3. Game Rules, Strategies and Tips

General Game Rules

The rules of KSudoku are quite simple.

  • Depending on the size of the game board, the type of puzzle and the difficulty level chosen an individual KSudoku puzzle may take from a few minutes to a few hours to solve.

  • Each square may hold one and only one symbol.

  • Each horizontal row (as defined by the game board) can contain each symbol exactly once.

  • Each vertical column (as defined by the game board) can contain each symbol exactly once.

  • Each block (as defined by the game board) can contain each symbol exactly once

Note:

The set of symbols depends on the size of game you choose.

  • Knowledge of mathematics or language is not required to solve KSudoku puzzles.

  • The symbols already on the game board when the puzzle starts cannot be changed.

  • You can only modify the symbols you have previously entered.

  • Puzzles generated by KSudoku have one solution only.

  • Puzzles you enter in might have no solution or more than one solution, but if they are from a published source this probably means you have made a data-entry error.
