How to play ?

SUDOKOUNT is very simple to play : draw a puzzle card and then use number tiles to solve it. Puzzle cards indicates an initial configuration for 5x5, 6x6 or 7x7 grids. Solving the puzzle consist in adding or removing number tiles so that the sum of each row and each column is equal to the goal indicated on the puzzle card.

  • Draw a puzzle card 
  • Setup initial configuration 
  • Solve the puzzle

Easy puzzle grids can be solve in a few minutes, while more complex puzzle grids will require intense hours of reflection... In SudoKount, there is two kind of puzzles to solve :

  • Empty puzzles : fill empty cells of the puzzle grid with missing number tiles so that the sum of each row and column is equal to the goal indicated on the card. 
in empty puzzles, find missing number tiles so that the sum of each row and each column is equal to the goal indicated on the puzzle grid
in empty puzzles, find missing number tiles so that the sum of each row and each column is equal to the goal indicated on the puzzle grid
  • Full puzzles : remove number tiles from the initial grid configuration of the puzzle to reach the goal indicated on the card.
in full puzzles, remove number tiles so that the sum of each row and each column is equal to the goal indicated on the puzzle grid
in full puzzles, remove number tiles so that the sum of each row and each column is equal to the goal indicated on the puzzle grid

A single game includes enough tiles so that two players can compete on the same puzzle at the same time, the winner is the first player to solve a predefined number of puzzle grids.

The game includes XTREME puzzle grids, where the goal is not indicated on the card. The solution of the grid is unique among all possible goals. To solve an XTREME grid, you'll need to figure out the goal for which a solution exists in addition to the solution itself. XTREME puzzle grids are available for every puzzle grid size (5x5, 6x6, 7x7) and for both empty and full puzzles.
