The Domino Deck Games Dice Tower  
Many, many, many years ago Games Magazine had a contest ...create a game that can be played with an incomplete or completed Sudoku. I thought this was a great idea. So I created a game called Snakeduko and submitted it to the contest. The thing is ...I never heard who won, or what ever happened in that contest. For all I know it was canceled for lack of interest. What I do know is all the play-testers that played Snakeduko for me really liked it. I really liked the idea of making a pencil and paper game out of a completed Sudoku for several reason; I love good pencil and paper games, I love Sudoku puzzles, I love the fact that there are millions of Sudoku combinations meaning millions of different board set-ups for the games and I LOVE the fact you get to re-use a puzzle as a game.

Over the years I have comeback to this idea and I have made several paper and pencil games for a completed Sudoku. Below are the rules for what I think are the best three I have done so far. What you will need is a pencil, a completed Sudoku, and the rules for the game. If you don't have a completed Sudoku, and want to give a game a try you can always create a Pseudoku Board.


Game Name Description # of Players
Snakeduko You try to build snakes by placing your symbol around the numbers on the board and then connecting your symbols into a chain. The number you last placed your symbol around determines where you can go next. 2-4
Sudoku Warriors A battle game where you use the intersections of grid lines to gain control of the numbers in the square. You use the numbers inside the squares as your resources during the battle. 2-3
