The Numbrix puzzle is all about making an unbreakable path using a starting and finishing number (the numbers in the circles).The rules are similar to Hidato, with the only difference not being able to connnect them diagonally! Numbrix and Hidato are much alike and are both highly addictive math puzzles or games.
The rules of Numbrix are, as with Sudoku or Hidato, fairly simple. Fill a grid with numbers! These numbers have to connect in a horizontal or vertical consecutive path. The highest and smallest numbers are given and printed in circles. The Numbrix puzzles have already a number of clues , but the harder the puzzle the less clues. Some Numbrix have more than one unique solution.
We have created many Numbrix puzzles in different grid forms and sizes. The larger the grid (10 by 10) the more difficult. Our puzzles are excellent brain teasers, warmers or rewards for math students.
