Easy Sudoku puzzles are perfect for beginners and kids to get acquainted with the rules and the principles of the game. Seasoned players looking for a quick and straightforward challenge to clean their minds or just pass time will also be able to enjoy this mode.
The levels of difficulty in Sudoku depend on the number of filled cells allocated at the beginning of each game. The easy level is the variety that starts with the most allocated digits. Based on these, you must fill the remaining blank cells on the grid with numbers from 1 to 9, paying attention not to repeat the same digit in each column, row or group. Finding the solution for an easy puzzle requires only attention, logic and basic knowledge of the mechanics of the game.
The basic rule of Sudoku is that numbers can only appear once per row, column, and group. Since the easy level is the one where more hints are given right from the beginning, the best way to start is by focusing on the columns, row or group with the most digits allocated and find out which ones are missing.
For the next step, you can focus your attention on a specific group at a time. Find out the missing numbers in it and then check your possibilities block by block by testing the missing digit against the information of the row and column where it is inserted.
Taking notes is not considered cheating in Sudoku and it is not even a beginner’s trait. On the contrary, it is an essential part of the puzzle to keep track of all the candidates and help with the process of elimination. In fact, the harder the Sudoku the more valuable and indispensable they become to find the final solution. Do not feel self-conscious about it using them. Just remember to update and clean them often to avoid cluttering the grid with unnecessary information.
