Program Description:

Cross Sums are played much like a Crossword puzzle, but with numbers!

Note that this program was written to PRINT Cross Sum Puzzles for you to play with paper and pencil (after it comes out of your Printer ;). It does not allow you to 'play' the game on the computer!

Also note that puzzles are created RANDOMLY, so once you press the 'New Puzzle' button on the toolbar (or press F5) it may never create the same puzzle again in our lifetime ;). For this reason, it is ALWAYS a good idea to Print BOTH the Puzzle AND the Solution, when you have the puzzle set up the way you like it, and are ready to play (no peeking at the Solution ;).

Cross Sums Rules:

1). Only digits 1-9 are used (no zeros allowed).
2). Each box can only contain 1 digit.
3). The digits in an entry may be in any order.

Cross Sums Example

Each 'word' in a Cross Sums is a series of digits that add up to the white number in the
black square.

The white number Above/Right a diagonal line indicates the sum of the digits to it's right (horizontally).
The white number Below/Left a diagonal line indicates the sum of the digits below it (vertically).

NOTE: For the example above, the asterisks (*) are shown to indicate where a matching opposite entry would be for a cell, if it existed (the asterisks are not printed on the puzzle).

In the example above, look in the 3rd column, 1st row.
22 is displayed Below/Left of the white line.
This means that the numbers BELOW this box must Sum (Add) to 22
(e.g. 6 + 7 + 5 + 4 = 22).

In the example above, look in the 1st column, 3rd row.
25 is displayed Above/Right of the white line.
This means that the numbers RIGHT of this box must Sum (Add) to 25
(e.g. 4 + 7 + 6 + 8 = 25).

Have Fun!
