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 got A and B!!! The rest is unsolvable.

ok, here goes (with orphans):

last two of 39A must contain one of 45 only.
last three of 37A must contain one of 345 only.
if 345 is on the last square, 13D=76
and if 345 is not in the last square, 13D=76
eliminate some stuff.

33D!=36789 because this overloads the 4's in More...

Not sure how you conclude 13D is 76. Why can't it be 49 or 58 (i.e. '345 is not in last square')?

me -
There is only one 345 in the last three of 37A.

if H=6789, then 33D is 45789 conformation.
Which knocks out all except the topmost 5 in 35D.

And then, by the top rule, F=7

Focusing on the 3s 4s and 5s and finding the 6 cross solved it. A lot of time finding eliminations though and running short mental chains to get them. Orphans of course.

No can do! I do not understand any of the explanations me and Chris give cause after writing all the possibilities I cannot see why the last cell of 39A has to be a 4 or 5
