HOW TO PLAY
Choose a Number Link stage and start connecting pairs of numbers on the board. Be careful not to overlap the lines or you will interrupt the lines between them. The solution for each stage is achieved when all the pairs of numbers are correctly connected and all of the squares of the board have been filled.
The player has to pair up all the matching numbers on the grid with single continuous lines (or paths). The lines cannot branch off or cross over each other, and the numbers have to fall at the end of each line (i.e., not in the middle).
It is considered that a problem is well-designed only if it has a unique solution and all the cells in the grid are filled, although some Numberlink designers do not stipulate this.
In 1897, a slightly different form of the puzzle was printed in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, in a column by Sam Loyd. Another early, printed version of Number Link can be found in Henry Ernest Dudeney's book Puzzles and Curious Problems (1932) as Planning Tours (puzzle no. 270). This puzzle type was popularized in Japan by Nikoli as Arukone (アルコネ, Alphabet Connection) and Nanbarinku (ナンバーリンク, Number Link). The only difference between Arukone and Nanbarinku is that in Arukone the clues are letter pairs (as in Dudeney's puzzle), while in Nanbarinku the clues are number pairs.
As of 2006, three books consisting entirely of Numberlink puzzles have been published by Nikoli.
