Item description for The Way of Kakuro: The King of Japanese Number Puzzles Volume 1 by Nikoli...

Kakuro is a simple yet challenging game of numbers that has already surpassed Sudoku in popularity in Japan. While Sudoku asks players to use logic to solve the puzzle, Kakuro requires some basic addition and subtraction. The aim of Kakuro is to place numbers between 1 and 9 in blocks of between two and nine empty cells running horizontally and vertically inside a larger grid. The sum of each block should match the target number or clue, which appears inside the blacked-out cells. No number may be used more than once in each block, but a number may reoccur in the same row or column in a different run.
The Way of Kakuro offers 95 puzzlers created by the team at Nikoli, who were first responsible for Japan's Sudoku craze. Each puzzle has been crafted by hand-rather than generated by computer-to give it the key ingredient that makes puzzle-solving enjoyable: the sense of communication between solver and author. Graded from easy to hard, and with a basic tutorial that even a novice can follow, The Way of Kakuro offers everything players need to become totally enthralled with this hot new game.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Way of Kakuro: The King of Japanese Number Puzzles Volume 1?

best kakuro book i've found  Jul 20, 2007
This kakuro book has challenging puzzles without it also being impossible. The time factor adds a really fun dimension to solving the easier puzzles too. Even beat the expert time on some!
Very satisfying games for puzzle fans and especially for sudoku players  May 27, 2006
Kakuro is Sudoku's bigger brother: THE WAY OF KAKURO: THE KING OF JAPANESE NUMBER PUZZLES VOLUME 1 bills it the top of Japanese number puzzles from the original Japanese creators of the rage Sudoku, and thus it should hold appeal to any who want to move to a new puzzle based on numbers. Easy addition and subtraction helps the Kakuro novice get started, but the puzzles don't stop there: brain teasers and complicated routines provide very satisfying games for puzzle fans and especially for sudoku players.
