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!

No orphans, just one small chain in my head to choose between 7 and 8 for Q. The pairs of 2,3 make it easy to do in my head.

Don't know if it can be done without the chain and orphans.

R not Q.

me +1. No orphs, only a chain done in your head. You can prove that Q only has two possible values, and looking at how each of them affects the five 2-3 combos solves it.

the 23 loop in not a 'bad' chain in the sense of trial and error. I'ld call it a 'loop'. It proves the first two cells of 28A add to 10 in all circumstances, and that is enough to solve the puzzle.
