How to play Kakuro
Kakuro is similar to both sudoku and traditional crossword games.
Like a Crossword
Similar to crosswords, Kakuro has clues both across and down. When you put numbers in the vacant squares, the sum must equal the given clues. This is why the game is sometimes called 'cross sums'.
Like a Sudoku
Just like a sudoku, you cannot have the same number in a row or column. If a row is broken into 2 areas by a clue, then you can have the same number occuring once in each of the separate areas.
Other variations
Still looking for more puzzles? How about a variation on sudoku? Try Wordoku. Wordoku uses letters instead of numbers and has a hidden 9-letter word! For crossword puzzles, try Free Crossword PUzzles. 2 free crosswords (Easy, Hard) daily.

Talk about anything and everything, but nice to each other - you don't have to agree, but this is not the place for personal attacks. As Sir Paul McCartney said: 'I used to think anyone doing anything weird was weird. Now I know that it is the people that call others weird that are weird' (longer explanation). Enjoy!
I found this to be very difficult! I used orphans and had to work even after that.

What is 'using orphans' and why is it so significant? Thanks.

0:43 with orphans. Fun and interesting.

Quite difficult for an 'easy'. Did without orphans. George, orphans are the squares which are part of A or D but not both. There are 4 orphans in this puzzle, which is abnormally high. If you add up the total of the D squares and subtract the total of the A squares you get the total of the numbers contained in the orphans.

Challenging for an easy; need to just concentrate on constraints on 26A (then 14A).
