The object of the game is to fill a 9x9 grid with a number so that every row and column have a number from 1-9 with no repeats and each 3x3 grid has a number from 1-9 with no repeats. The puzzles start with a partially completed grid and the players must fill in the rest.

By Joel E. Dillard on February 12, 2007
This game is remarkably better than the numerical version of Sudoku. The maker's clever use of color variations (rather than traditional numerical distinctions) makes it more accessible to those who can, at times, fall among the numerically "challenged," even as it provides a completely new challenge to advanced players who may be approaching complacent proficiency with the more traditional numerical version of the game. I was impressed (and surprised, given the price) by the beauty of the wooden board and the tasteful colors of the wooden spheres. Puzzle cards are used to create ranges of difficulty from easy to challenging to "really tough" and they are easy to use. Kudos to the creators of this delightful game, which is also a handsome coffee table accessory.

This is a great game for childen 6 and over as well as adults. It's fun; it's addictive. My adult friends and my grandchildren love it so it sits out on my coffee table for anyone to use. The game is very well designed, attractive and sturdy. My only caution is the colored balls are small and a potential choking hazard for small children and small animals; I strongly recommend that it not be left within their reach and be well supervised when in use. Also, it's a good idea to provide a small bowl to hold the game balls while the game is being played because they easily roll off the table. Sudoku is a one person game usually but this format easily lends itself to two players who want to work together to solve the same puzzle. This game is now at the top of my gift list along with Rush Hour.Rush Hour

Super logic game for all ages - Grandpa, dad, and grandson all just love it -- you can play solo or duet (take turns trying to make a play).
Good antidote for kids who are glued to their gameboy. It's sudoku for both left and right-brained folks -- numbers are good for left-brainers, but the colors are better for others.

What is great about this game is you never have to put it away. It can be set up on your coffee table and played anytime you need a distraction from your day. I always leave a game set up ready for play and enjoy taking little breaks throughout the day to play. Visiting guests are instantly drawn to it for a quick game.

Couple things.... I agree with several other writers that some of the colors are difficult to distinguish, especially red and orange. Also, as with Sudoku, you are given a preset number of balls as a head start (depending on difficulty level). However, once you begin playing the game, there is no way to distinguish between the balls you started with and the balls you have placed yourself unless you refer back to the game card. A simple solution would be to just put a mark on one side of each ball. Place the balls with the mark facing up for pre-set balls, and with the mark facing down for player placed balls. (if you already own the game, a simple magic marker dot can solve this). Finally, this is a game it is fun to take with you places, the original box makes travel easy for the game and the balls, but once you have assembled the game card box, the game cards no longer fit in the original box...

All these issues are easily compensated for and in no way deter from the fun you will have with the game. I love the game and highly recommend it to all.

The board is well-made, but the colors of some the balls are too similar to each other, and the colors of the balls don't all match the colors on the cards used to layout the puzzle. E.g.: The Orange ball is almost the same shade as the Red ball. The Blue ball is so dark it's similar to the Purple ball. The Light Blue ball (almost cyan) doesn't match ANYTHING on the card. Why no White ball? And, there are exactly 81 balls, the number required to play the game. No extras. Should be an extra set of balls. Last, it's properly labeled 'Ages 8 and Up' but I wouldn't recommend it for any family with a small child in the house-- balls perfect size to choke if put into mouth.

I was introduced to this game by my sister who uses it in a classroom for high school children with learning disabilities. I have an acquired brain injury and am always looking to stimulate my thinking. Although, I thought sudoku puzzles were to hard and i would never be able to do this. The coloku has cards to set up games with in levels from easy to exteme. My daughter, who is a math teacher can do the extreme. Needless to say I can't. The whole family can play as well. I am hooked on colorku.

I like this even better than traditional Sudoku - my husband and I have been playing together instead of watching TV. It's a great game. Balls are a little difficult to get out of the plastic holder, but at least they're not rolling off somewhere.

I bought this game for my 9 year old nephew for Christmas and he really enjoyed it. It's less intimidating than the numerical version of Sudoku and he caught on fairly fast. His 4 year old brother even helped put in the marbles in the right places and while he didn't quite understand the rules he seemed to enjoy trying to catch on. The wooden board it comes with is very sturdy and well crafted. My only complaint would be that the maker of the toy doesn't supply any holding container for all of the colored marbles, so it's a bit cumbersome to put away when you're done. However, I would recommend this game to any parent who enjoys Sudoku and wants to teach their children the game! The best part about it is that any Sudoku puzzle you can find online is easily translatable to this version. I highly recommend it!
