Sudoku Tip
 
Many people incorrectly spell Sudoku as "Suduko" or "Sudoko". The correct English spelling is Sudoku - which means "single number" in Japanese

Another variation on Sudoku is to overlap multiple puzzle grids.

For example, imagine two overlapping 9 X 9 Sudokus which share a 3 X 3 box. In this case, the contents of that 3 X 3 box could be deduced using clues from either of the puzzles, and likewise numbers in that 3 X 3 box could help you solve either of the Sudokus.

The most common version of overlapping Sudoku puzzles, is Samurai Sudoku. In Samurai Sudoku (also known as Gettai-5), five overlapping 9 X 9 Sudokus are arranged in an X shape (thus there are four 3 X 3 boxes which are shared between Sudokus).

Samurai Sudoku can be a lot of fun, as it adds a new challenge. You'll find that you can't simply solve one 9 X 9 grid and then move to the next - instead you have to switch between grids as you go, because of the subtle interactions caused by the overlapping boxes.

Product Description:
This popular, even more challenging variant of sudoku is for true puzzle warriors! Each one consists of FIVE sudoku grids arranged in an X-shaped array, with overlapping corners. No grid can be solved on its own; to complete the entire puzzle, players have to work on several grids at once, making their way to overlapping areas and constantly searching for new clues.
 
While regular sudoku-solving techniques provide the starting point, the game’s more complicated than that. Because the overlapping areas belong to two different grids, they must comply with the rules of both simultaneously. That changes the puzzle’s underlying logic…and makes these sudokus more fun for the serious fan. An introduction, with a sample puzzle, shows all the strategies.
