Sudoku implements the well-known number puzzle. Objective of Sudoku is to fill the empty cells with digits ranged from 1 to 9 in a valid pattern. Some cells are already holding fixed digits and cannot be edited. A valid pattern means that
On clicking an empty cell it gets marked by a question mark symbol. The question mark indicates that no specific number is selected for this cell so far. Now you can select a digit ranged from 1 to 9 to fit in the cell. To clear the cell a question mark can be reselected, too.
The Sudoku generator in use here is explicitly not only supporting symmetric cell patterns that often can be found in other Sudokus.
This type of number puzzle does actually not have Asian origin. Anyway it got popular under the name Sudoku being published by a Japanese puzzle company in mid 1980s. Sudoku is an abbreviation of the Japanese Suji wa dokushin ni kagiru. This could be translated to Digits must be singletons.
Any Sudoku solution represents a form or relation towards so called Latin square in a Mathematical sense.Back
