### Overview

What could be more appealing to Mensa membersâ€”or anyone who enjoys a good challengeâ€”than a cunning test of intelligence and logic? Thatâ€™s exactly what these 250 puzzles provide. The trick to kakuro is in making it all add up: the game begins with a grid that looks like a crossword, except that some squares contain small numbers in the corner. Fill in all the empty boxes using the numbers 1 to 9 without repeats so that the sum of each horizontal set of digits equals the number in the black triangle to its left, and the sum of each vertical set of digits equals the number in the triangle above it. The kakuro puzzles start out simpleâ€¦and get more difficult as the book progresses.

#### More fun than Sudoku

Don't be intimidated by the "Mensa" bit. These puzzles are "doable." The unfortunate part is that they're addictive.

#### Hours of challenging fun

I love this kind of puzzle -- Cross Sums, Dell Puzzle magazines called it for the last 50 years at least. And this book presents good examples of it.
