Sudoku is a popular puzzle game in which numbers are used to fill in the empty box cells of a grid. The object is to fill in every row, column, and 3×3 region with one single number so that no two rows, columns or regions have the same value. The number of boxes and their sizes will vary according to the difficulty level chosen.
Here are tips to help you play Daily Sudoku.
1. Identify any definite
You can start with the grid and determine if it is symmetrical or not, if there are any repeating digits in a column or row, and so on. If you have determined that a particular number is definite, mark it next to its row/column. Once you have done this, you may skip over it in your Sudoku solution-making process.
2. Check the numbers in each cell
Once you have identified all of the definites in a particular grid, then you can move on to check if any of these numbers can be eliminated from their respective cells depending on whether they are multiple of 3, 5, or 7, as well as whether they are divisible by 3, 5 or 7 respectively. Once you have done this, mark these cells as such next to their number next to them on your Sudoku solution-making page.
3. Use the trial-and-error method
Sometimes, finding the solution to a puzzle is not an easy task. You may need to do some trial and error to find out how many columns and rows are needed in order to fill each square with numbers 1 through 9.
4. Make sure there are no mistakes in your answers
Solve each puzzle one by one until all digits are correct. If an answer isn’t correct, double-check that it’s not an error from the last puzzle you solved. This can easily be done by looking at the numbers under each cell and comparing them with their neighbors’ values. If they differ, you may have made a mistake somewhere in that puzzle’s last row or column. If so, repeat that cell row or column until all digits are correct again before moving on to the next puzzle.
5. Know when to stop
You should only solve as many puzzles as necessary for your daily challenge. Otherwise, you’ll waste time doing things that don’t contribute directly to your score, such as checking answers.
6. Master the rules
Don’t try to solve a sudoku puzzle without knowing all its rules. If you don’t know how to play Sudoku correctly, it will be very hard for you to progress with the game itself, resulting in failure rather than success.
Use logical thinking
Look at the clues provided in the Sudoku puzzle. These are vital to solving the puzzle, especially if you’re going for a high score. The clues can be used to determine where numbers are located on the grid, but they also give hints about what numbers must be somewhere in the numerical pattern of squares.
Sudoku is a logic puzzle that requires you to use creativity and logic to solve it. It is a great way to exercise your mastery skills and improve your problem-solving skills.
