Kakuro is a Japanese game of logic -- and the next big puzzle craze to sweep the world since Su Doku. Like Su Doku, Kakuro is played on grids of varying sizes, using the numbers 1 to 9, and like Su Doku, Kakuro is absorbing, addictive, and utterly compelling. Combining numbers and logic, and with the interconnectedness of a crossword puzzle, this is a game for everyone -- all you need is the ability to add two numbers together.
The Essential Book of Kakuro contains full instructions to the game, along with hints, tips, and invaluable number-combination tables, as well as more than 100 original puzzles for beginners to experts (and their solutions).
If you like Su Doku, then you are certain to fall under the spell of the endlessly diverting, uniquely challenging Kakuro!
