Day 45 / 104 - ColorKu
Over the summer, we discovered ColorKu in an independent toy store. We are huge Sudoku fans, so we were excited to try our hands at this.
ColorKu is the colorful version of a Sudoku game using wooden balls instead of numbers. Puzzle cards are included in order to start you off with a few colors in the pockets. Then, the objective is to fill the board so that no color is repeated in any row, column, or square. Actually, you are able to play it with any Sudoku puzzle by assigning a color to each number (red - 1, orange - 2, yellow - 3, etc.) and setting up the board.
My children have loved this and have spent quite a bit of time this fall solving puzzles. But, if it sounds easy, it's not. At least not for me. I find it far more challenging to remember nine different colors than nine numerical digits.
