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!
believe it or not, this is a no nothing. I am feeling very pleased with myself :-)

Did it quite quickly with no nothings but only because Chris said so!

No orphans, but not easy for me. I saw the 5 cross early (which helps a lot), but it took me a long time to realize that there is only one possible configuration for 36D.

With orphans

I looked at it and decided not to waste a half hour. Used possibilities and then it wasn't too bad.

Chris and Angelo + 1. I found it a challenge though.

I spent 10:30, much of which was trying to do it without orphans (finally resorted to a chain)

Nada - Look at 11D and place the 5, noting that because of 27A, 36A must have a 1 in it somewhere (and there is only one option). Then it's a race to the finish.
