The Method of Playing: There will be 81 boxes (9X9 = 81) in a bigger square. All these 81 small grids would be divided into 9 squares. Within those 9 squares there will be again 9 smaller grids. Some of these 9X9 grids will be already filled up by some numbers and you have to fill in the rest of the grids with digits starting from 1 to 9. You should arrange the numbers in such a manner that each row, each column and each mini grid should contain the digits 1 to 9. However, no number should be repeated in any grid. For your comfort, you can use a pencil initially for your rough calculation. Mark the places with numbers you think would be right and when you finally calculate the numbers erase the pencil marks.
