HOW TO PLAY

You don’t need to be a Math’s Wizard to play KenKen, all you need is to master these 4 rules.

IDENTIFY THE PUZZLE

Fill in each square with a number
The number you use in a KenKen puzzle depend on the size of the grid you choose
  • In 3×3 puzzle, use 1, 2 & 3
  • In 4×4 puzzle, use 1,2,3,& 4& so on

START FILLING NUMBERS


The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, call cages, must combine (in any order) to produce the target number in the top corner using the mathematical operations indicated (+,1,x,÷)

JUST LIKE SUDOKO


A number cannot be repeated in the same row & the column.

HAVE YOU GOT A FREEBIE?


Cages can contain 1,2 or more small squares & can even go “around the corner”
A cage with one square is a “Freebie”. Just fill the number you’re given.
