How it works
Let us imagine a sudoku map as a collection of 9 TicTacToe maps.
In TicTacToe, we use X and O s, here we use shapes( preferably squares and circles)
Different way of giving points.
The game begins here
Player 1: Makes a outline of square in any number in the map except at the centre of 9 squares( as we all know , centre place is so advantageous)
Player 2: Makes a circular outline in any unit.
Then the next player should shade, a number in their shape , with a rule as follows
Where x is his old number and n is his choices for the new number.
This goes on and on,with players making squares and circular shades.
3 continuous units = 1point
Common unit that completes 2 rows=2 points
differently if you fill 5 units with your shape in a 3x3 square =1 point.
Points add up.
Winner is the one who reaches 13 points.
