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.

Seemed awfully easy today.

Personally, I consider confirming uniqueness part of the solution. But the primary purpose of these puzzles is for people to enjoy them. I enjoy confirming uniqueness, which is why I do it. If someone else doesn't, that doesn't make them wrong, it just means they enjoy the same puzzles in a different way than I do. And it is not my place to tell someone else what they can and can't enjoy.

11:12 I like your attitude, Kevin. And I agree with you too, UrBuddie. I've done hundreds of these puzzles and never found even one that had more than one correct solution. Therefore, I feel confident in assuming that if my solution works, it must be a unique solution.
