We have a large range of 3D sudoku puzzle types available. If you've not played these puzzles before, then they work in a similar fashion to standard sudoku, but the regions can wrap around the 3D faces of the grid. This can make them trickier to solve, and they are also generally larger than standard sudoku puzzles. So if you like normal sudoku but are ready for a step-up to something harder, then 3D sudoku could be right for you.

Likewise, if you are a publisher looking for something out of the ordinary, a trickier challenge to standard sudoku, or simply something that looks very impressive on the page and will stand out from your normal puzzle selection, then 3D sudoku could be a great choice for you. We have three types of 3D sudoku puzzles available, as outlined below:

Snowflake Sudoku: These puzzles consist of six 4x4 regions arranged in the shape of a snowflake, and require the solver to place the numbers 1-8 once in each region of the grid. They are one of the smaller 3D sudoku variants, and therefore a great choice for those who are new to 3D solvers, or for a relatively small position on your puzzle page. They are a fantastic addition to a Christmas puzzle page of course, but can be used all year round. You can see an example of a snowflake sudoku above.

Sudoku Cubes: Sudoku cubes are, as the name suggests, a cube-shaped sudoku puzzle. These come in a range of different grid sizes, from 4x4 faces to 6x6 faces to 8x8 faces for the largest puzzles. The larger the grid type, the harder the puzzle as the more squares there are to be placed. Regions wrap around the faces of the cube.

Giant 3D Sudoku: Perhaps the most impressive of the various 3D sudoku types, and certainly the most intimidating. These take the form of a giant cube that has had areas taken away from it to create various striking patterns and shapes of grid. The rules are the same, however - place the numbers 1-9 once in each region of the grid. These puzzles really have a wonderful 3D feel to them, and will require patience, as they are generally very large with lots of squares to fill! Regions wrap around the faces of the cubes, and bold lines are used to divide regions in cases where the regions do not go all the way to the edge of the grid. YOu can see an example of a giant 3D sudoku below.
