*Su Doku* (Japanese: 数独, short for
数字は独身に限る ~ Sūji wa dokushin ni kagiru, literally: "the digits must
remain single") also known as Number Place,
is a logic-based placement puzzle.
The aim of the canonical puzzle is to enter a numerical digit from 1
through 9 in each cell of a
9×9 grid made up of 3×3 subgrids (called "regions"), starting with
various digits given in some cells (the "givens"). Each row, column,
and region must contain only one instance of each numeral.

The puzzle is most frequently a 9×9 grid, made up of 3×3 subgrids called "regions" (other terms include "boxes", "blocks", and the like when referring to the standard variation; even "quadrants" is sometimes used, despite this being an inaccurate term for a 9×9 grid). Some cells already contain numerals, known as "givens" (or sometimes as "clues").The goal is to fill in the empty cells, one numeral in each, so that each column, row, and region contains the numerals 1–9 exactly once. Each numeral in the solution therefore occurs only once in each of three "directions" or "scopes", hence the "single numbers" implied by the puzzle's name.
