Timberdoodle's Review
Sudoku, the numbers game where players fill each of the blank boxes in a puzzle based on specific rules, has received a makeover. Introducing ColorKu where the use of colors rather than traditional numbers makes ColorKu much more accessible to Sudoku novices, children intimidated by numbers, or just lovers of beauty. ColorKu will improve your child’s memory and logic and will require him to think strategically and solve problems creatively. The gorgeous playing board is solid wood, and comes with eighty-one wooden marbles in nine intense colors. The included dimpled-plastic tray pulls double duty as both a cover when ColorKu is not being used and as a ball holder while playing ColorKu.

Over 100 puzzle cards are included, with difficulty ratings from easy to challenging. Thankfully, the answer to each puzzle is also provided. And because you can readily convert any Sudoku puzzle into a ColorKu puzzle with the addition of the color conversion card, your child will never run out of challenges. ColorKu is such a visually-beautiful game you may find yourself leaving the game out for an impromptu game. We have found that it is perfect as an impromptu diversion for restless visitors whose parents are preoccupied. We fill the board; then, depending on the child's cognitive ability to handle challenges, remove an appropriate number of wooden marbles and let him figure out where the missing pieces belong.

You start by placing the colored marbles on the card onto your board then you have to fill in the rest. Use your logic to play by getting one of each color of marble in each of nine rows, columns and 3 x 3 squares without overlapping with the same color. Each puzzle has only one correct solution.

Please note: due to some very small pieces, this teaching tool could pose a hazard to children under three years of age, or any child prone to putting things in his mouth.
