# Futoshiki

Futoshiki - is a new logic puzzle that is has similarities with sudoku; but this puzzle has one big difference...

It is a very interesting puzzle that has come out of Japan, like so many number based logic puzzles. What is particularly interesting about futoshiki is that you have to take into account < and > signs and obey the relationship they make between certain cells in the puzzle.

For instance if you have something like this " 4 > ? " then you know that the '?' must only be 1,2,3 else 4 is equal to 4 and 5 is greater than 4, neither of which obey that particular relationship.

There is one unique solution to each futoshiki on the puzzle club that you can reach without guessing (just my logic) and applying standard sudoku rules, remembering of course there is no equivalent to the 3 x 3 boxes in futoshiki.
