It demystifies the process, walking you through completing your first puzzle with illustrations and explanations that show the logic involved. You’ll get your feet wet with more than 100 easy puzzles, sharpen your skills on120 in the medium –to-difficult range, and if you’re brave enough, go head-to-head with nine devilish ones that’ll keep you awake nights.

In no time, you’ll find yourself as addicted to kakuro as you are—or were—to sudoku, and having twice as much fun! You do the math.
