The object of the game is to correctly fill in all the empty spaces with the correct numbers. The classic Sudoku game involves a grid of 81 squares. The grid is divided into nine blocks, each containing nine squares. Each of the nine blocks has to contain all the numbers 1 through 9 within its squares without any duplicates or omissions. Each vertical 9-square column and each horizontal 9-square row must also contain all the numbers 1 through 9 within its squares without any duplicates or omissions. You may only put one number in each square, unless they are notes, which you indicate by making them smaller. Using logic, reasoning, and deduction, you must figure out every box in the grid so that all the rows, columns, and blocks all hold to the rules without conflicting each other. Every Sudoku has exactly 1 correct solution. Once you have filled in all the squares with the correct numbers, you win!
