Sudoku Puzzle Explained
You will find research notes near the Ruin machine explaining the puzzle. All the 8 blocks has a numerical value based on the direction it is facing and on whether it has a slate at it’s top or not.
Blocks that are facing North will have a value of 1, East will have a value of 2, West will have a value of 3, and west will have a value of 4. The direction of the blocks can be changed by attacking them.
Block with floating stone slate at its top will have an additional value of 4. The picture below shows what cubes with and without slate look like. The glowing symbol doesn’t mean anything.

How do you number the 2 south cubes with slabs both facing west? And the northwest one is also facing south can’t also be 3 (I’m not looking at the solutions)
I know 1 2 3 8 9 can’t be changed.
they will be 7 and 6
Wow, this is what i search for. Thx so much, the other guide only give the instant number
I came here for the solutions, because I had NO idea what the game wanted me to do. But after reading a proper explanation of this puzzle’s mechanics I managed to solve it on my own. It’s fun, just horribly explained ingame (especially in german).
Thankyou finally, a proper explanation. other site just give me instant answer
You do not need to log out of the game for the puzzle to reset. You can simply go to your teapot then return to the puzzle instead.
I wish they freaking explained what they meant by floating “slate”, especially since those “slates” don’t really appear to be floating! I thought they were talking about the ones that could be rotating (because they’re essentially floating, allowing them to be rotated) They could have easily included illustration… I wish I didn’t solve the first 2 by pure chance. Figuring out the last puzzle on my own was rewarding.
