The basic rules of Sudoku (see below) are fairly easy to understand. For detailed instructions, including advanced techniques, visit the Sudoku Instructions page.
In standard Sudoku, you're presented with a 9 x 9 grid. The grid is subdivided into nine 3 x 3 sections.
You'll see that many of the cells in the grid are blank. Other cells contain a single digit, 1 through 9, already pre-filled in. (The number 0 is not used.)
The goal is to fill the rest of the 9x9 grid with single-digit numbers 1 through 9 with the following basic restrictions: A number can only be used once in each row, column, and 3x3 cell.
