Instead, you have greater than and less than signs indicating the relationship between certain cells in the puzzle. This adds a delicious twist to the massively popular puzzle.

Look especially for places that you can tell is either a '1' or '5' - this can help you start many futoshiki puzzles.
Also, remember that if two cells contain the same two numbers alone as possibilities, you can eliminate these from other cells in that region. Imagine the region looks like this: Good luck solving the puzzles - remember to have fun!
