Play OverviewPlay Overview

Sudocats (2022) is a Sudoku-style brain game for people who prefer cats to numbers. It plays the same as the usual Sudoku game and has similar mathematical thinking benefits, but without numbers to get in the way.

Like usual Sudoku, Sudocats puzzles require careful logic and number-placement. The objective is to fill each grid with cats so that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3-by-3 sub-grids contain just one of each of the nine cats.

You can play in different sized puzzles, 4-by-4, 6-by-6 and 9-by-9. You can take on a daily challenge to see how your cat-arranging skills compare to other players. You can also earn points to purchase cat trading cards.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Sudocats 20 months ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 12 months ago.
