Star Battle Puzzles by KrazyDad

Here are hundreds of free Star Battle puzzles suitable for printing.

Star Battle first appeared at the 2003 World Puzzle Championship in the Netherlands, the creation of Hans Eendebak. I'm making two varieties: an easier 8x8 1-star variety, and a harder 10x10 2-star variety. I'll add some larger 3-star puzzles if I get inundated with emails.

Each puzzle is divided into a fixed number of regions. Each region, row and column must contain the same number of stars (1 or 2 stars, depending on the puzzle variety). Stars may not reside in adjacent cells (not even diagonally).

If you are new to Star Battle, you might find this tutorial helpful.

Each collection is ordered by difficulty, with the easiest puzzles in Book 1, and the hardest in Book 100. If you are new to these puzzles, I recommend you start with Book 1. If you find they are too easy, skip ahead by 10 books or so. If you find the puzzles are getting too hard, move up to Book #1 of the next volume, and they'll get easier again.
