How To Solve Sudoku

What is Sudoku? How do you play it? What are the tricks and techniques to help you get beyond staring at a bunch of blank squares, and start to fill in those numbers?

Michael Mepham has put together a great guide called, appropriately enough, Solving Sudoku. (If the link does not work, it is likely that you need to upgrade your version of Adobe Reader (free software). Go to and click on the Get Adobe Reader link.) It explains the rules, guides you through the basics, and gives you a quick teaser into the world of ‘Truly Diabolical Sudokus’. You even get four different Sudoku’s to attempt, ranging from Gentle and Moderate, through to Tough and Diabolical! (and it also gives you the answers on the next page).
