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!

For Angelo .... re puzzle 9-2-2011 .... the triple 124's are illegal because they give rise to multiple solutions (which are not allowed). Double 12's would do the same, and quad 1234's likewise.

Some people allow non-unique solutions, but these kakuro.cc puzzles all seem to be one solution only.

took me 25 minutes, but it is possible with only logic. I used orphans, but think it was a waste of time adding those numbers up in my head 4 times to get them right.

I don't even try. Have never solved one.

Got there in the end with orphans and some chains. Tough one. Thanks for the tip Chris.

Too difficult to me? In principle, I don't use the 'uniqueness-argument' because to me solving kakuro includes the proof of the fact that the solution is unique. I'll get back to this one some day, though.

Orphans and 2 chains

it's nice to be able to do the eliminations that the unique solution rule enables. but I can't quite wrap my brain around how 124 in 2 columns or rows means multiple solutions (it seems 1234 in 4 rows and columns is easier to understand)
