A number clue indicates the sum of the digits in the across or down entry. No digit is repeated within an entry (but digits may repeat within a full row or column). A letter clue indicates the first letter seen from that direction after the clue. (For clarity, all letter and number clues point down or right except for the letter clues on the bottom/right edges of the entire grid which point up/left.)
