# Sudoku

Do you already know the game Sudoku? It is the short form for the Japanese sentence "Suji wa dokushin ni kagiru", what can be translated as "all numbers have to happen exactly once". It is a logic puzzle which resembles the magical squares. The first known Sudoku-like game was developed by the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler under the name "Latin Square" in the 18th century. After that there where further variants again and again, but very popular it became in Japan within the 1980s. Meanwhile it enjoys worldwide popularity.

## Rules

Perhaps you already know the Sudoku rules? Then you can start playing now. But nevertheless there are still some specific rules in the Stefan Trost Sudoku, according to which you can play in addition.

The Sudoku is a game played in nine times nine small fields. The numbers between 1 and 9 can be written down in every field, some numbers are already provided. The aim of the game is to accomplish two goals: First a single number should only be used one time in every line and every column. In addition the field is divided into 9 big boxes depending on 9 small fields. Also in this boxes a single number may happen only once. The boxes are indicated by thick lines.

Of course in the Stefan Trost Sudoku you can play according to the known rules. But you can also play with some features: You can play on a field which does not habe nine times nine small fields. In this case the maximum value of the possible numbers is restricted by the game section length. For expample, if you play a 7 x 7 Sudoku, you can put the number from 1 to 7 into the fields. This variant is called "free" in the game and can be chosen if you do not like to play a complete Sudoku or you want to practise a little bit.
Another variant uses symbols instead of numbers. The rules are identical here. Every line and every column may not have more than one single symbol. I wish a lot of fun with the game! If you have some ideas of further variants,let me know!
