Your Sudoku Board
Your Sudoku Board is on the right. It has nine Rows, nine Columns and nine Table Blocks.
Each of these sections of the Sudoku Board have nine cells. Some of the
cells are already filled in. You job is to figure out what numbers go in the cells where
the Check Off Tables are.
You can only use the numbers 1 - 9 and you cannot use them more than one time
in each Row, Column and Table Block. Good Luck!
Check Off Tables and the Color Change Drop Down
Check Off Tables
The Grey Cells with small numbers from 1 - 9 are
Check Off Tables. They will change color when you click them.
Use them to help keep track of which number doesn't belong.
Wh, Lm, Red
To the left you will see a drop down box that says
Wh, Lm, Red. This is the default. You can choose a
color and when you click a number in the Check Off Table it will change to that color.
This color setting helps when determining whether a number is in a column or
row which is in a specific table box. You can use White if the number is in a cell,
Lime if the number is only in a Table Block Row when there is more than on of that
mumber in the Table Block. Red would do the same but for the columns.
Rotate 5 Colors
If you see that it is possible for a particular cell to be a certain
number, click that number in the Check Off Table. It will turn
white. As you continue playing you may
find that something else keeps the number you checked from being correct.
Click it again and it will become black, hiding the text.
Lime and Red are the next
two colors. Click it again to change it back to Grey.

Each Check Off Number is assigned a specific color. It will change to that color
