For those who haven’t done these before:

Kakuro is the mathematical version of a crossword puzzle, in other words: more fun B).
The objective is to fill the empty squares using the clues in the grey squares and by following the rules underneath:
  • Only the digits 1 to 9 can be used.
  • The sum of each horizontal or vertical group of digits should equal the value in the grey square to the left of it or above it respectively.
  • The most important rule: a digit can only be used once in the same sum! You can use a digit more than once in the same row or column, if a black or grey square separates them.
  • No guessing required ^_^

A small hint to get you started: write out all the possible combinations of digits for each clue.

If you get stuck, send me a PM with what you have and I might give you another hint.
