Free Range (Kurodoko) Online

Share this page to Google Classroom

Kurodoko, also known as "Where are the black cells?", is a gripping logic puzzle that appeals to both beginners and seasoned solvers. Your task is to strategically color cells in a grid based on provided clues, offering an engaging and intellectually satisfying experience.

Color some squares black, so as to meet the following conditions:

  • Numbered squares may not be black.
  • No two black squares are orthogonally adjacent.
  • No group of white squares is separated from the rest of the grid by black squares.
  • Each numbered cell can see precisely that many white squares in total by looking in all four orthogonal directions, counting itself. (Black squares block the view. So, for example, a 2 clue must be adjacent to three black squares or grid edges, and in the fourth direction there must be one white square and then a black one beyond it.)

Left-click to color a square black. Right-click to mark a square with a dot, if you know it should not be black.
