Updates for easier navigation and better printing

David and I have been working on improving some of the functionality of the site – it’s now possible to navigate more easily to the daily puzzle archive pages, and select the puzzle you want to play;  You can then print just that puzzle, without having the solution right in front of you!

From there you can take a look at the solution too (a side-by-side view in case you do want to print both), or to go straight to the step-by-step guide to solving the puzzle.

We’ve added in by request the rating value for each puzzle, and also the calculated techniques that will get you to the solution – of course you’re free to use whatever techniques work for you!

Finally we’re working on making many more of the pages (particularly the daily page, and individual puzzles) much more printer friendly by removing sections that you don’t need on paper. Hug that tree!

In the future we’re hoping to have a feature on the site where you can play right in the browser too – and still have access to all the solver assistance, pencilmarks, and help from the mobile app – but that’s likely some time away!

If you have any more suggestions for the site – or if you’ve found a page that is broken, please get in touch – we do our best to make the site work as well as possible for everyone, as well as being welcoming for new users!

Welcome to our new look!

When we originally launched the Sudoku Of The Day site back in around 2004/2005, we had no idea how popular it would be as a reference for people who wanted to learn how to do Sudoku, and improve their knowledge to tackle harder puzzles. Since then we’ve released many iterations of our phone/tablet playable versions with new features and styling, but the website has hardly had an update in almost 10 years! We finally felt it was about time, to coincide with releasing an updated handheld version, to update the website and make some fixes and improvements along the way!

We hope you like the new clean look, and find it just as easy to navigate around!  If you’re accessing from a mobile device, you should find that this site is much nicer on your device too as it will scale to make the absolute best use of your available screen space.

Let us know what you think in the comments!
