LINDI PUZZLE RULES OF PLAY

The rules of Sudoku prevail! If you know how to play Sudoku, you will know how to play LINDI!

 

As in Sudoku, each box will have a unique number in each row, circle within a circle, and within a Random Pattern indicated by the bold lines, as shown on examples. In this case there are 8 rows, so we will be using the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 for each row, circle within a circle, and within a Random Pattern indicated by the bold lines. As in Sudoku, there CAN NOT BE DUPLICATE NUMBERS within the unique rows, unique circles within a circle, and within a Random Pattern indicated by the bold lines. Please refer below to the completed puzzle diagrams with the following explanation of these three different elements for LINDI puzzle solving.

FIG.1 shows a completed puzzle. Notice the bold lines that separate the “Random Patterns”. There are 8 Random Patterns shown in FIG.1. Moving on to FIG.2 that illustrates an example of “within a Random Pattern”, as the numbers are located inside of the bold lines ( see item 42 on FIG.2 ). Moving on to FIG.3 is an example of a row as shown by the bold lines ( see item 16 on FIG.3 ). Moving on to FIG.4 is an example of a “circle within a circle” as shown by the bold lines ( see item 18 on FIG.4 ). There are a total of 8 “circles within a circle” in this example ( the other 7 are not indicated by bold lines ).

Note* There will always be the same number of boxes in each row, boxes in the circle within a circle, and boxes within the Random Patterns indicated by the bold lines in each puzzle. Our example here has 8 total rows. We also include puzzles in each of our editions with 10 total rows! The 10 rows puzzles use the numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 for each row, circle within a circle, and within a Random Pattern indicated by the bold lines.
