Kakuro rules

The game of Kakuro is also called Cross Sum puzzle. Look at the game rules.

About the game:

The Kakuro puzzle is of different size of length and width, although most puzzles are squares.

The Kakuro has 3 different boxes.

  • A clue box ‚Äď which has usually a number on the bottom and/ or on the right side.
  • A white blank box ‚Äď that is where you fill in the a number between 1 and 9.
  • A block box ‚Äď that is the black box.

Rule :
Place one digit from 1 to 9 in each empty box so that the sum of the digits in each set of consecutive white boxes(horizontal or vertical) is the number appearing to the left of a set or above the set. No number may appear more than once in any consecutive boxes.

Helpful box:

The Kakuro puzzle has a significant relation between the number of boxes and the sum of the boxes.
As the simple example the 3 on 2 boxes. This can have only one combination of numbers 1 + 2. Once mastering this table the puzzle becomes more logical to solve.
