Suduko is a problem solving activity. The object of the game is to get the digits 1-9 in each row and column. The challenging part is you can only use each digit once in the row and once in the column. You will also notice there are square areas (bold area) within the main game board, you need to make sure the digits 1-9 are within these too. Are you up to the challenge?
