Puzzle. Sudoku: Latin Squares is a new twist of classic sudoku, which brings immense fun and helps to develop logical and strategic thinking. There are two challenging game modes: Classic and Latin Squares. Classic Mode is for conservative players, who prefer classic rules. The sudoku board is a lattice, which consists of nine columns and nine rows and is divided into nine 3x3 boxes. Some squares have initial numbers in them, which are called clues. Your task is to fill in all the squares with numbers. There is only one indispensable rule: every row, column and box must contain all given numbers. Each number can be used only once in any column, row or box. Remember that there is only one possible way of solution. Latin Squares is an exciting interpretation of classic sudoku, which is played on the game board, similar to sudoku but with colored sections instead of boxes, and it may be of different size. The main rule is that every row, column and colored section must contain all given numbers, without repeats.
