Operating on the same system and strategy as the addictive Sudoku puzzles, the Colorku Board Game brings bright tints to an otherwise monochromatic challenge.

Some people get tripped up by the sight of numbers, so the substitution of vivid hues will make the strategy game more easily solvable to those who are visually minded. This version of the pastime would be difficult to incorporate into the daily newspaper -- unless you carry pencil crayons on you -- but it's the perfect fit for a Mancala style of setup.

The wooden Colorku Board Game features a grid of nine separate squares with nine divots in each. There are 81 marbles in nine different shades, and a stack of cards with 104 challenging puzzles as well as solution cards.
