I am trying to recall the name of the puzzles where numbers are placed in a grid, and a number is given on a half-block each direction, say the total is 6 and you have 3 blocks to fill, you then look at the opposite direction for what fits there and match it up, so:
X/4
6/1 2 3
X 3

(1+3=4, 1+2+3+6)

Is that a Kakuro puzzle?

Hi jellykans,
Yes, that sounds like Kakuro all right. (AKA Cross Sums or Sum Totals.)

Not that I can help specifically with this, Emma, but I suspect it will help others help you, if you specify what month's magazine, what title, what page,
etc., the puzzle is on that you're having trouble with. Or were you referring to the first thing in this thread, where Jellykans gave what I think is only
an EXAMPLE of the way these numbers go?
