Sudoku creator and solver

Our newest free Excel tool is a Sudoku game. Sorry it’s taken so long, we didn’t realise how difficult it would be to make it do everything we wanted to do whilst also performing well in Excel.

We have given you 6 levels of puzzle to enjoy, ranging from easy to extreme. With an ‘Oh Dear’ category which gives you the opportunity to try a puzzle based on the worlds hardest Sudoku.

To help you improve your skills, or to move past a stuck position we have also provided you a number of options to help you…

  • Check that your answers are correct so far
  • Highlight each number in turn to help you to focus on any gaps
  • Highlight the easiest numbers to focus on next
  • Reveal another number at random

Once you’re finished, or if you give up you can then solve the puzzle to show the complete grid. At this point you can either unsolved to return back to where you were when you clicked Solve, or press Reset to return the grid to the original puzzle you were presented with.
