Kakuro tips

General

  • Start with the short blocks and then move to the longer ones.
  • Look for magic-blocks. They are usually much easier to solve.
  • Study the magic-blocks table and try to use it as much as possible.
  • Make small pencilmarks noting which numbers are allowed in the empty squares. This will help narrow down possibilities later on.
  • Always double check before placing a number.
  • Never guess! Only make moves based on logical deductions.

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

When solving on paper
