Kakuro  ('Cross Sums' or 'Kakro') is similar to traditional crossword puzzles as it has clues both across and down. When you put numbers in the vacant squares, the sum must equal the given clues. This is why the game was originally called 'Cross Sums'. Click here for more info

How to play
  Place numbers in the empty squares by choosing the number from the row at the bottom and then clicking in the chosen square. When you put numbers in the empty squares, the sum must equal the given clues across and down. Like Sudoku, you cannot have the same number in two places in any row or column. However if a row or column is broken into two areas by a clue, then you can have the same number occurring once in each of the separate areas.
