Overview

Every sudoku fan knows that this popular number puzzle has always flirted with math. But the two have never come together…until now! Meet Calcu-doku, the newest and sure to be hottest development in the sudoku world.
All that’s needed is simple arithmetic, so even solvers who aren’t mathematically inclined will have fun. Each puzzle looks like a normal sudoku, except for sectioned-off smaller areas that contain a little math symbol and a number. For example, let’s say that two numbers are boxed in with a “21x” in the corner: that means they multiply to 21, so they must be either 3/7 or 7/3. All the other traditional sudoku rules remain in place, but the added variety of a little touch of math makes Calcu-doku extra-addictive. Plus: 144 regular sudoku, too!

    Nice change from Original Sudoku

    Calcu-Sudoku is very fun yet challenging. I love to play Sudoku, but after a while I wanted to play another number game that was fun and challenging. The object of the game is to eliminate the numbers by figuring out the possible numbers that would fit into the math problems. the total numbers in the square are less than traditional Sudoku, but the game is just as challenging. I first learned of Calcu-Sudoku in the "Brain Games" books.

    Catch CalcuDoku Fever!

    A nice mixture of straight-forward Sudoku and the variation including a combination of basic math. CalcuDoku further stretches your analytical/mathmatical mind. Each segment starts with easier puzzles that gradually become more challenging, and then add or change the mathmatical symbol. Once you have conquered each step, the puzzles get bigger - with an additional challenge. I find it a delightful way to change thought pattern after a long day at work. But then it is hard to put the book down - just one more puzzle...
