Excel Breakout Puzzle 4
It is time for another breakout puzzle … yay! Have you ever played Sudoku? My family loves doing these puzzles, in fact, last week we had a full-on Sudoku race and competition. Who won? Not me. My daughter totally crushed it. I’d get like 5 squares done, and she’d be like, “done!” Again and again. Anyhow, that Sudoku competition was the inspiration for this Excel Breakout Puzzle. Hope you get a chance to check it out.
The objective is to find the 4 letter code I’ve hidden. You’ll first need to complete the Sudoku puzzle to get the key. Then, use the key in step 2 to reveal the code. If you aren’t sure how to play Sudoku, the rules are fairly easy. You basically want to use each number 1-9 once in each row, column, and block without overlapping. Do a quick web search for Sudoku rules if needed.
I hope you download the workbook and give it a try:
If you get the 4 letter (not number) solution, please let me know by posting a comment below. Enjoy 🙂
