Sudoku, the numbers game, has received a makeover. Introducing ColorKu, where colors rather than traditional numbers make Sudoku skills accessible to novices or students intimidated by numbers. ColorKu will improve memory and logic and require the player to think strategically and solve problems creatively.
The gorgeous playing board is solid wood and has eighty-one wooden marbles in nine intense colors. The dimpled-plastic tray pulls double duty as both a cover when ColorKu is not used and as a ball holder while playing ColorKu.
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 marble color in each of nine rows, columns, and 3 x 3 squares without overlapping with the same color. Each puzzle has only one correct solution. 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 that you may leave the board out for a spontaneous game. We have found that it is perfect as an impromptu diversion for restless visitors whose parents are preoccupied. We fill the board and remove an appropriate number of wooden marbles depending on the child's cognitive ability to handle challenges. Then we let him figure out where the missing pieces belong.
Play ColorKu alone or with others, using logic and deductive reasoning.
To start, choose a puzzle and place the colorful wooden marbles where shown.
Solve the puzzle by placing the remaining marbles to obtain one of each of 9 different color marbles in each column, row, and 3x3 square on the board.
Transform any Sudoku and imagine the problem differently by looking at the board from different angles or by counting the number of the same color ball remaining. Over 100 included puzzle cards range from easy to challenging to really tough.
