KenKen™ is a mathematical and logical puzzle loosely similar to sudoku. It was invented by a Japanese mathematics teacher Tetsuya Miyamoto as an 'instruction-free' method of training the brain and was later published in The Times in March 2008.

The objective is to fill a grid in with the digits 1 through 6 such that:

  • Each row contains exactly one of each digit
  • Each column contains exactly one of each digit
  • Each bold-outlined group of cells contains digits which achieve the specified result using the specified mathematical operation: addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (x), and division (). Unlike Killer sudoku, digits may repeat within a group.

Sudoku Quotes and Tips
The great thing about these puzzles is that they have to be solved by pure logic, not luck. They can be frustrating, but the reward when you crack them is a great feeling.
Wayne Gould, Father of the current Sudoku craze.
