The game really looks interesting, but I have no idea how to play. I know it seems to be quickly gaining in popularity and I would like to try it out. Thanks for your posts in advance!

basicaly you have only to fill the 9x9 grid so that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3x3 boxes contains the digits 1 to 9 with out repeating either one of the numbers in any of the coloumn, row and each of those boxes. i hope this helps. greetings. : )

I can attempt it. It is rather hard to explain. So you have 9 boxes with some numbers. In the end, you have to end up with 1-9 in each box, up and down, and across. But no two numbers can be in the same row. See, its hard to explain. The easiest way is just to try it. It is fun once you figure it out.

heya, it really if dificult to explain but here is my try - you must use the number 1-9. you cannot have the same number twice in any given line of numbers. so if you are looking at a particular box and there is already a 3,4,5,6 for instance going vertically and a 1,2, 8 and 9 going horizontally then the number must be 7 as it is the only one not already used. it can be hard in the beginning but when you start to get a few numbers in the lines it becomes much much easier. i hope this has helped some..
