## How to play Sudoku puzzles

Your goal is to fill in the empty cells, one number in each, so that each column, row, and region contains the numbers 1-9 exactly once. Start by looking for the easiest numbers to place, such as 1s and 9s. Then look for rows, columns, or regions with only a few empty cells. If you're stuck, try looking for a number that can only go in one place. Keep refining and adjusting until the entire grid is filled. It's a perfect blend of logic and deduction.
