Si eres un fan de los pasatiempos y un auténtico cerebrito en esto de las matemáticas, estamos seguros de que no puedes resistirte al sudoku. Su nombre ha sido exportado directamente del japonés sÅ«doku y lo cierto es que no se trata de un juego demasiado antiguo.
Nació en 1970, aunque no se hizo verdaderamente popular, en Japón, en 1986. Más adelante, allá por 2005, en su afán por proponer pasatiempos un poco más originales, los periódicos del mundo los introdujeron más allá de su país de origen. Y así fue como nos enganchamos a ellos.
The goal of sudoku is to fill in a 9 x 9 grid that is divided into 3 x 3 sub-grids with numbers 1 through 9. Some numbers are already entered in the cells. They should not be repeated within the same row, column, and sub-grid.
Today we want to propose you a challenge for August. We have put together over 350 Sudoku pictures to download and print . And in case you have not done with the mechanics yet, we also leave you an instruction. There is no excuse to spend the dead times in August sharpening your wits. Enjoy them!
If you're still a sudoku newbie, maybe it would be interesting if you started with the easiest ones . There are computer programs that can determine if a Sudoku puzzle has one level of difficulty or another. They are in charge of solving the problem and this helps the editors to adapt the different sudoku puzzles.
This is how hobby books are composed with Sudoku or an indication is made, if they are published in newspapers, so that the person who is going to solve it takes into account what is the level of difficulty that he faces.
In fact, if you decide to play online (you have many proposals at your fingertips) you should also be alert to this indication to have a more pleasant experience. If you face a high level of difficulty from the beginning , chances are that you will never want to do a Sudoku game again in your life.

Some say that it is one of the more complicated variants. The board is completely empty and the cells do not have numbers. In return, what we can find are certain boxes grouped by a dotted line in which a sum of small numbers is offered.
What we will have to do in this case is to follow the rules of classic sudoku and not repeat the numbers within the same row, column or block. The boxes will always be 9 × 9, just like the sudoku you already know. Will you be able to solve them?
For now, here are a total of twenty Killer Sudoku images to download, print and solve at your leisure: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20.

Let's now go for another type of sudoku that offers us a good level of difficulty. It may be a bit easier than Killer Sudoku, so if you weren't planning on going older, this may be a good proposal. We have found 16 x 16 sudoku puzzles (the normal ones are 9 x 9) of different difficulties, so if you want to try them you can also start with the easiest level.
In the end, we have decided to propose five different sudoku puzzles for each of the difficulty levels .

What is not enough with a single Sudoku? Well, calm down, because you also have the option of playing double Sudokus. In this case, you will find countless interesting options , with which you can unleash your math skills.
About its rules, you have to be very aware. Because Double Sudoku works differently from what we understand by normal sudoku. In what sense? Well, because it mixes different concepts. In this case, the Double Sudoku forms four diagonals, which double the two of the Sudokus X. The distribution of the grids, which share the 3 x 3 section, also changes. In this case it is common between both.
The game is identical to the one we enjoy in the Sudoku X . You have to fill in the boxes with the numbers from 1 to 9, bearing in mind that none can be repeated. The colored diagonals also have to be filled and done the same way.
If you want to practice double Sudoku , here are a total of ten games to download and print: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
Screenshots of Sudoku Samurai
Have you ever heard of Sudoku Samurai? If the answer is no, we are going to tell you exactly what it is. It is also known by the name of "Gattai-5", although we will talk about this game as a "Samurai" variant.
Five standard Sudoku grids are included on the board , but the four end Sudoku puzzles share a 3 × 3 section. And this is right in the center of the board. In order to solve the game, this space will have to be kept in mind, because the rest will depend on the numbers included here.
The experts are very clear that to solve the Sudoku Samurai you have to study the intersections very well. Only in this way will we be able to bring up a solution. We have chosen for you a total of 10 Sudoku Samurai images that you can download and print below: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
And now let's go for another type of Sudoku. It is becoming clear to you that with this sudoku thing you won't have time to catch flies, right? Sudoku X is another modality that may also be attractive to you. It has a 9 × 9 board , divided at the same time by regions of 3 × 3 squares. To all this we must add a couple of colored diagonals.
You will have to complete the different boxes, always keeping in mind that the colored diagonals have to be completed . And use the same method, of course. Do you see yourself capable of solving them? If the answer is yes, here are a total of ten Sudoku X images to solve: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
As you can see, there are an infinite number of sudoku variants. In recent times, a variant known by the name of Kakuro, which actually comes from the Cross Sums , has also become popular . It is, therefore, a combination that in Japanese mixes sums and the English term "cross", which would be crossed.
Actually, the Dell Publishing Company was the first to bring up these curious hobbies. They were then imported to Japan by Maki Kaji, President of Nikole. If you are not too immersed in this world, we have to point out that Nikole is the name of a famous Japanese hobby magazine.
The mechanics are not entirely simple. So pay attention to these instructions. Inside the blank boxes you will have to write numbers from 1 to 9. The sum of these figures, at the end, must correspond to the key number, which is the one at the beginning of each row.
Numbers of the same sum cannot be repeated in the same row or column. It is important that before getting to work with the kakuros, you are very clear about what the sums with a single set are . They are those that can only be obtained through a single possible combination. For example: 3 + 1 = 4 or 2 + 1 = 3.
If you keep this concept in mind, things may be a little easier for you. Even so, with kakuros you will have to sharpen your math and logic skills as much as with sudoku. For now, here are twenty to whet your appetite: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20 .
