Block-a-Pix tips

General

  • Start with the very small clues of 1 and 2.
  • Search for squares which can only belong to one clue and form a temporary partial block. This will help finding other blocks in the area.
  • Sometimes large blocks are easier to solve than what it seems. Don't be afraid to try even in the early stages of a puzzle.
  • Remember: blocks with primary number clues (3, 5, 7, 11, 13…) are always 1-square wide.
  • Scan all clues one by one. There is always another step somewhere!
  • Never guess! Fill blocks with the right color only after you know to which clue they belong.

Note: There is only one unique solution for each puzzle.

When solving on paper

  • Use a soft erasable pencil and a high quality eraser.
  • Mark the outline of the block first and then fill it with color.
  • Clues in light-gray mean that the block is white. You can mark the squares of white blocks with X's or just leave them empty.

When playing on a computer

  • Use Preferences options in toolbar for a better personal playing experience.
  • Any block can be deleted by double-clicking the mouse.
  • Blocks showing a surrounding line mean they are not yet completed.
