Childrens Killer Sudoku Magazine

children's killer sudoku magazine Killer sudoku is generally seen as a harder puzzle than standard sudoku, and certainly the larger puzzles can take quite a while to get started; once a certain threshold is reached they can actually solve faster than a normal sudoku at times.

For children, the standard 9x9 puzzles can be too intimidating or, indeed, too hard. That's why we've introduced this selection of 100 all new children's killer sudoku, designed especially for children.

The puzzles are all 6x6 so have just 36 cells to fill rather than 81. These puzzles are excellent educational tools as they combine the need for logic (sudoku) with the addition and mathematical skills required in number puzzles like kakuro.

The puzzles get gently harder as the magazine progresses, though none of the puzzles is geared to be harder than a medium difficulty to solve. The rules are simply to place 1 - 6 once in each of the rows, columns and 3 x 2 boxes.

The rules with the dotted regions are that the number at the top left of a dotted region tells you the sum of the cells in that region, and you are not allowed to repeat a digit within a sum region. This means that a total of '6' from two cells cannot be '3,3' as that involves repetition, so it must be 1,5 or 2,4 in some order.

The magazine contains 100 childrens killer sudoku puzzles spread over 25 pages, with the solutions following on 25 additional pages. You can view a sample page of the Children's Killer Sudoku Magazine here.

Solving children's killer sudoku

Children's killer sudoku require the normal sudoku solving rules, but in addition you need to consider the dashed sum cages, too. Therefore they are a superb way of practicing your sums / addition skills.

The key to using these dashed sum cages to help solve the puzzle is to look for low or high totals. This is because they have the least options. For instance, a sum of '3' from two cages must contain 1 and 2. And a sum of '4' must contain 3 and 1 - that's because you can't repeat a number within a cage, so you wouldn't be allowed to have 2 and 2. Likewise if the sum if '11' from two cages, then it must be 6 and 5 in these 6 x 6 puzzles, since that is the only way to make that total.

As mentioned you'll need to use standard sudoku solving rules as well, but combined with these addition rules these puzzles will be a great mental workout.
