Beating Roodoku isn't as hard as it seems in the beginning, just give it a try and do it one step after the other!
Since I wanted to be fast and it's enough to beat the game in easy-mode for 200 points, I just explain this one for now, so you can fast finish your challenge! Layout will change asap... gimme some time for that please, I just rushed it down... sorry

[VOTE] for bebiikaa in the BC!!! You won't find any other artistically Korbat around
Yes, a shameless plug ^___^

[the game] || [game board] || [step by step - easy mode] || [medium] || [hard] || [you are amazing!!!]

[the game]
To complete the puzzle fill in all the blank squares with numbers from 1 to 9. In each row, column and square you need to have ONE time the numbers 1 to 9. Sounds rather easy, no? With the help of your mouse hover over a blank square and pick up the number you think fits in there. On the start screen, press [new game] and choose your skill level from the upshowing screen [practice mode] is just to train it and the easiest you can play for ZERO points. We'll start with [easy mode] as this gives us the points we need to complete this challenge. No need to pay attention to the time as it gives 200 points for solving the puzzle. The exact amount of points we need!

Medium gives min. 400 points and Hard gives min. 600 points.

[game board]
In easy mode this is how your game board will most look alike:

Your board has 3x3 squares, 9 rows and 9 columns:


Within those different colored boxes shall never appear the same number twice or more, only 1 to 9 once
[to top]

[step by step - easy mode]
no repeats in any row, column or 3x3square... very important... use one number after the other, start with that number that appears most often in the board already, all others of that kind flash on in green so you can better navigate yourself through the puzzle So now you know where everything is, we can start:

I redid the game board a bit to make it easier to see, so this is what we have gotten:

We should look closely to it and see the very left column has just one number missing:

I usually start counting through now: 1- on the board, 2 - on the board, 3 - is missing in that column which means this must be the number that goes there, we can now fill that in! And a double check shows this number doesn't appear in that square and row either - a perfect match!

Now I chose ONE number to fill in first... In this case the number 7 seems to be perfect!

As you can see in the original game board all other 7's flash up in green, so you can see better where our 7 should go to!

If you chose one number at a time it will be way easier to solve the puzzle, as you can concentrate on that one. Only mark it as a go if you are 100% sure that this number must go there! Pick up numbers that are often at the beginning as this makes it easier to later see where the other numbers belong to. Pay attention to the square, the row and the column for that single number. Next on my list would be the 5 since we have a lot of 5's given already, afterwards the 6's as we can clear that up with the 5's.

If you go number by number and keep doing that, you will easily get to fill in all blanks.




Now it's not sure where to put the 2's, but we have one column with just one number missing, go through it and you'll figure it out:

The rest is easy going, most columns, rows or squares are either filled or miss just one number. Fill it in:

You are done and see that screen:

Now set your last number and see if you were right. IF you did everything correct a screen apears telling you how much bonus points -according to the time left- and game points you get. Easily 200 points for that game:

Now press any key you wish for and send your score! You've made it - shower yourself in the glory of that moment ^^.

who's mysti?
What shall I say? I am a normal Neopian who happens to love to draw, mostly digitally in pixels. Sometimes on canvas with oil or acryllic colors, randomly Neopets. I am a tad older than most people I meet in the BC. I like to give a helping hand and just hang around in the boards every now and then, only if I am occupied with real life things I am not on Neopets. I am as my side accounts state a German living in Germany with my American fiancé. Normally I do teach children of different ages, mainly in Science and Language classes.
I am an average grown-up I guess. I am living with my fiancé who happens to love Neopets too. My guild is more a playground for layout projects. I do code webpages since 1996, in most cases I do it for companies in my spare time LOL and I am more programming in PHP than pure HTML. It just makes life way easier.
Sometimes I try to get into the AG but somehow never manage it anymore, I was in the AG once and I really don't like the pic that has made it in.
I do have one main and four (yes all four) sideaccounts. I do own several pets, collect avatars half-hearted on my main. My gallery is filled with Petpets, Plushies, presents from my fiancé, Dr.Sloth and Grundo Stuff, my secret Gallery is in progress with two new themes.
I do play Neopets since May 2005 and yet I am still not fed up with it. I sometimes do play WoW as a gnomish warlock, I sometimes battledome on Neopets but only with Nally.


A list of my beloved Pets:
on [mysti76] (my main):
Auphon - the LabRat (atm Acara)
Nally (EternalAfflict) - the Blue Lutari
Moi (Moirah_Dracul) - the Island Acara (will move to side)
Zero (Zerocentric) - the Ghost Kiko
Mal (Maldeevius) - the Fire Blumaroo (actually visiting a friend)
on [khisanth_onyx]:
Laura (lauranalia) - the Darigan Zafara (my 1st Neopet)
Scit (scitso_chick) - the Xmas Zafara
Ptelos - the Green Yurble
Phereos - the Cloud Gnorbu
on [mysti76sa]:
Japp (Japrentos) - the Green Eyrie
Jaret (Jaretos) - the Xmas Grundo
Tea (teacup2121) - the Striped Tonu
Aelanan - the Biscuit Kiko
on [mysti76sas]:
Bobbi (Bobbingly) - the Xmas Gelert
Estorus - the Speckled Quiggle
Hugy (Hugythe) - the Ghost Pteri
Jen (Jepasora) - the Baby Blumaroo
on [mysti76chan]:
Bebii (Bebiikaa) - the Blue Korbat
Coruptia - the Blue Kau
Ittsy (Itsshy) - the Cloud Ogrin
one free spot - wow ^^ (reserved for Moi)


I adopted a few of my pets from the Pound and none of them will ever be UFA or UFT *shivers* the latter simply hurts my heart deeply, who would trade his real life pet for another one? I do like my little darlings a whole lot, even I do have a lab rat LOL. My out-of-pound-darlings are scit, tea, auphon, bobbi and hugy.
