Killer Sudoku puzzles follow the same rules but with the added condition that the sum of the numbers within a dotted sub-region (cage) must match the small number printed in its corner. No number may appear more than once in each cage.
Hidato sounds as Japanese as Sudoku, but it is actually a game developed by Dr. Gyora Benedek, an Israeli mathematician. Just as Sudoku, though, Hidato is logic-based and not per definition a math puzzle. You need to form a continuous chain (path) of numbers in a grid. The numbers may connect horizontally, vertically and diagonally.
Numbricks is as simple as it is addictive: fill a grid with consecutive numbers in a horizontal or vertical sequential path. Or in normal words: connect numbers! This logic puzzle is great for math students as it develops sequential thinking skills that are basically needed in solving any math problem. Numbricks has the same rules as the famous Numbrix puzzles.
