Frequently Asked Questions
- Getting started
- The aim of the puzzle is to enter the digits 1 through 9 in each cell
of a 9×9 grid so that each row, column, and region (3×3 subgrids) contains
exactly one instance of each digit.
You must enter digits 1..9 into free cells until the puzzle is solved.
Use the arrow keys or mouse to navigate. Enter '0' (zero) to clear a cell.
Invalid moves will be rejected with a warning message: for example entering
the same digit twice in a row will not be accepted.
Note that you still can enter wrong moves: watch out, or you
may end up in a dead-end situation where no valid move is possible.
You can always click on 'Undo' to undo the last moves.
