Triplechain: an addictive puzzle game

This is a pretty interesting game. You are going to need a couple of games to understand it (the walkthrough helps) and a couple of dozen games to see that it is actually a pretty deep game requiring a mix of skills.

If you want to make really high scores, play advanced, which gives you some abilities to manipulate your draws (the more games you play, the more abilities you will earn).

The daily challenge is fun (I won it twice up to now Big Grin). See who makes the best score with a fixed set of numbers in normal mode.

Tip: figure out how to make three chains that touch all five areas. Knowing how to do that will aid your game play as it will provide you with a good idea of an optimal strategy for placing your high numbers.

The playing board is the same, yes. But that´s where the similarity ends. Sudoku is a game with perfect information, requiring only brute force techniques to solve, while Triplechain is not.
