Answers to Questions

How to solve a 6x6 Sudoku grid?

A 6x6 sudoku is identical to a classic 9x9 sudoku, except for blocks that can be irregular or identical according to the grids (blocks of size 6 are often rectangles of 2x3 or 3x2).

The resolution uses the same steps as the classic sudoku but with only 6 digits (or 6 distinct characters).

On dCode, indicate the contents of the boxes (only letters or numbers). NB : dCode handles copy and paste with a space as an empty box with the values in order from left to right and top to bottom.

To indicate the blocks of 6 boxes, click on a predefined example under the grid or enter them manually by pointing the contours.

Example: The content 6 4 3 2 2 2 2 1 can be pasted in the first box to get

6
