Hanjie is a Japanese game of logic and aesthetics -- and the next big puzzle craze to sweep the world since Su Doku and Kakuro. Like Su Doku and Kakuro, Hanjie is played on grids of varying sizes and is absorbing, addictive, and utterly compelling. Combining numbers and logic with the interconnectedness of a crossword puzzle to gradually reveal a picture, this is a game for everyone -- all you need is the ability to add two numbers together.
Like previous Su Doku and Kakuro books in this bestselling series, The Essential Book of Hanjie contains full instructions to the game, along with hints, tips, and invaluable number-combination tables, as well as more than 150 original puzzles for beginners to experts.
If you like Su Doku and Kakuro, then you are certain to fall under the spell of the endlessly diverting, uniquely challenging Hanjie!
