So here's to an EXCELLENT year for everyone! A 2011 filled with love, joy, prosperity, success, good health, and all the happiness life can bring!
And since I have a few days off, I've used my vacation to feed my Kakuro addiction and made the color coded cheatsheet I've always dreamt of having. I'm sharing it with all Kakuro and Sum Sudoku fans as an addiction feeding gift :) I hope you find it useful, pretty, and easy to use!
UPDATE: Now available as a poster as well AND in three different sizes WOOT! Get it at zazzle, it's awesome and it makes a GREAT gift! :)
See below for a free PDF download and I've also uploaded the cheatsheet as JPG images (click to print large size):
You can download the PDF here (free download, no registration required, but there's a 20 second countdown wait): Kakuro Sum Sudoku Color Coded Combinations List.
Scroll all the way down and click the Regular Download button. The file is very small (60KB) so ignore all the slow download warnings, it's actually pretty quick once you get past the Captcha.
The list is color coded by total sum and number of cells so it's easy to spot the row I'm looking for. Even numbers are white and odd ones are gray. Lucky unique sums are bolded.
I keep the file open in Facing-Pages View and Alt-tab between my browser and the PDF viewer when I need a sum I can't remember, like those pesky 4 and 5 cells in the 20s :)
I used to use the Kakuro Number list at http://www.grosse.is-a-geek.com/kaklista.html, and the Always Used feature has come in handy quite a few times, so I've integrated it into this list as well.
The headers mean:
Now that you have an easy to use cheatsheet, head over to Puzzles Kingdom and have fun playing Sum Sudoku and Kakuro :)
♥ Wishing everyone a blessed 2011, filled with all the good things in life. May you be Happy, Healthy, Loved, Prosperous, and Successful in all your endeavors!
It's going to be a WONDERFUL year, I can't wait to see the excellent adventures it will bring :)
To all, a Happy New Year!
