Sudoku is a popular number puzzle game that involves filling a 9×9 grid with numbers so that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3×3 subgrids (also called “boxes” or “blocks”) contain all of the digits from 1 to 9. The puzzle starts with some cells pre-filled with numbers, and the goal is to complete the grid based on these initial clues. Here are the rules of Sudoku:

  1. Grid Size: The standard Sudoku grid is a 9×9 grid, divided into nine 3×3 subgrids.
  2. Digits: Use the digits 1 through 9. Each row, column, and subgrid must contain all of the digits from 1 to 9 without repetition.
  3. Initial Setup: A Sudoku puzzle begins with some cells already filled in with numbers. These initial numbers provide clues for solving the puzzle.
  4. Objective: The goal is to fill in the remaining empty cells so that every row, column, and 3×3 subgrid contains all the digits from 1 to 9. No digit can be repeated within a row, column, or subgrid.
  5. Logical Deduction: Sudoku puzzles are designed to be solvable through logical deduction and not require guessing. Players use deductive reasoning and elimination to determine the correct placement of numbers.
  6. Completing the Grid: The puzzle is considered solved when all the cells are filled, and the rules of Sudoku are satisfied.

Here’s a simple example to illustrate:
