Kakuro example
Kakuro logic puzzles

Also known as: Cross Sums, Number Cross

The rules of Kakuro are simple - just place the numbers 1 to 9 into the puzzle grid so that each continuous horizontal or vertical run of empty squares adds up to the given value immediately to the left of it or the top of it respectively. There is one other key rule: the same number cannot be repeated within any run, so the solution to a given '4' cannot be 2+2 but must 1+3 (or 3+1). (You can however repeat a number elsewhere in the same row or column so long as there is at least one non-solution square between them).

There is only one possible solution, which can always be reached via reasonable logical deduction. Guessing is never required.


We can supply Kakuro puzzles in a wide range of shapes and sizes. All of our puzzles are either entirely hand-made or have significant manual input into the process.
