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.

After orphans, jk and pq must both have a 2 once you eliminate the 8 in r with a chain

Also stuck.tried many chains without result.
It's nice to see that some people find the solution but it would be nicer if they explained how they found it.

OK John... Here's my way: Firstly, there are 8 easy cells. Then I concluded that the column with 14 (and orphan) cannot contain 1, you need orphans and an easy chain here. And now the trick is this: one of the rows with 23 and 27 have now 5 cells all bounded by 5 (since the other 14 column is More...

Stuck, even with orphans, 2018. Both suggested chains seemed a bit long for my liking.
