DO U SUDOKU?
I definitely do. And I'm hooked! Here's why:
I started reading stories in my local papers about Sudoku and all the
excitement it was causing in London. Although I'm primarily a
kind of guy, I'm also just a puzzling guy in general (just ask
who knows me) and when I finally saw what a "Sudoku" was I quickly
realized that I'd seen the puzzle before in Dell Crossword magazines
the 1980s (under the name Number Place). I had tried it a few times
never got into it because I never knew the basics of how to solve
But I do now! It's amazing how different Sudoku is when you know
Three Strategies"! There are patterns and clues and nuggets of
information hiding in every corner, and discovering where they are
how they go together is a fascinating, addictive exercise -- I wish
exercise were this fun! I showed them to a neighbor of mine named
Aramanda, who happens to be a computer genius, and he got hooked too
so much so that he did an exhaustive Internet search on Sudoku with
eye toward creating them himself and perhaps marketing them online.
Which is why I'm writing this -- Dennis is now creating beautiful
puzzles, and with his permission and abundant assistance, I'm
them to you. (For information on formats and
ordering, click here.)
If you're already a fan you know that solving Sudoku involves a lot
erasing -- and erasing is something I'm not exactly fond of. So
I have created an Eraser-Free format that eliminates erasing
grids are slightly larger and there's a lined-off space at the
each square for writing in "possibles").
Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions. We'll be
ways to improve the entire process, so we appreciate your input.
