Hanjie is a Japanese game of logic and aesthetics — and the next big puzzle craze to sweep the world since Su Doku and Kakuro. Like Su Doku and Kakuro, Hanjie is played on grids of varying sizes and is absorbing, addictive, and utterly compelling. Combining numbers and logic with the interconnectedness of a crossword puzzle to gradually reveal a picture, this is a game for everyone — all you need is the ability to add two numbers together.

Like previous Su Doku and Kakuro books in this bestselling series, The Essential Book of Hanjie contains full instructions to the game, along with hints, tips, and invaluable number-combination tables, as well as more than 150 original puzzles for beginners to experts.

Introduction

Hanjie is a fascinating Japanese picture puzzle that dates back to at least the eighteenth century. It consists of an empty grid that is filled in by following a few simple number clues, gradually revealing a concealed image — a kind of "painting by numbers." Just by finishing a puzzle, you're rewarded with a stylized work of art!
