recent kokuros have been too easy. Not posing enough challenge to satisfy having done it.

Goodness, Penelope you beat carlotes and myself roundly!!!

Actually I was pleased that for once we had a relatively straightforward kakuro, vsrawat, and not have to use any aid!!

Vsrawat, you could try to solve for speed - e.g. one person impressively solved it in 1 minute and 2 seconds, so you could aim to do these 'not challenging enough' puzzles as fast as you can.

Personally, I think kakuro are most satisfying when they solve with patterns rather than too much tough thinking. :)

Wow Elisabeth! I just looked at the chart rankings. I'm usually hopeless at kakuros and enjoy the easier ones.

Congratulations Penelope. You have no rivals doing kakuros! Well... removing Elisabeth and myself, just a few...

  • A yellow/light blue highlight in the time distribution charts highlights your time, where relevant.
  • Rating scores out of 10.0 show the average difficulty rating chosen by users, where 1.0 is "Easy" and 10.0 is "Hard".
  • If a puzzle is opened more than once, including by loading from a saved position, then this is potentially a significant aid so it is listed as being completed with 'multiple sessions' for the purpose of the best time/average rating displays above.
  • Minor aid is defined as no more than one use of 'Check solution' when incomplete and/or no more than one use of 'Check solution' when wrong; and/or using highlighting aids (show repeated digits, show broken inequalities and show valid/invalid placements [slitherlink] only). Major aid is any and all other use of the solving aids except for 'show wrong'.
