Krypto Kakuros

I’ve developed a new kind of puzzle which I’m calling a Krypto Kakuro. They combine elements of crossword puzzles, sudoku and cryptograms (or cryptarithms to be precise). Here are some samples for you to try.

If you aren’t familiar with kakuro puzzles, I suggest you solve a few of those first, before tackling these puzzles, which add some twists to the basic kakuro concept.

In each krypto kakuro, I’ve substituted a letter (A-J) for each digit (0-9). You must first unscramble the code before you can solve the kakuro puzzle. For each puzzle, a few of the answers are shown (also encrypted) to help you on your way. Each puzzle has a unique solution that you can find using logic and a little arithmetic.
