Despite its difficulty, this game is a fun puzzle once you get the hang of it. However, learning how to play this game can be extremely intimidating, especially if you’re a beginner. If you’re a complete beginner, the tips below can help you learn the basics of this game and progressively improve your Sudoku skills.

Tip No. 1: Look for rows, columns, or 3x3 regions, which contain five numbers or more. Work on answering the empty squares, with numbers that have not been used. Most of the time, you can find numbers that can be placed in one position only.

Tip No.2: Break the grid into 3 rows and 3 columns. Each row will have three 3x3 grids and each column that you break will have three 3x3 grids. After this, you need to look for rows or columns with two of the same numbers. Logically, the two the same numbers must have a third copy on the remaining nine-cell section. You need to look at the remaining 9 cells, and you can find the position of the last missing number.
