Remnant puzzles are effectively mini-Sudoku games that can be solved quite easily with some well-known tips and tricks that would normally be used for Sudoku.

  • Keep an eye out for any row or column with three glyphs pre-filled. You'll already know what the fourth one is just by process of elimination.
  • Think about the "can't"s as well as the "cans". Sometimes, even if you don't know what goes where, you will be able to know what can't go somewhere. Ruling out a possibility based on the fact that there can't be a repeat in a certain row or column is a great way to go!

Using those tips can help you figure out enough of the puzzle to make things easier the rest of the way through.
