I read about SuDoku a couple weeks ago in a small feature piece at one of the news sites. A few days later, I was on the phone with Dan, and he mentioned he had solved a couple SuDoku and was kinda into it. Then I found The Daily SuDoku and it's been downhill from there. Everyday, I print out 2 copies, one each for Stace and me, and we have at it.

“Kegz, what the hell is SuDoku?” It's a solitaire logic game. The puzzle grid is a 3×3 grid of 3×3 squares, or 9×9 in all. The grid starts partially filled in and the goal is to fill every row, column and 3×3 box with the digits 1 to 9, using each once. It's also really addictive once you start. You don't need to be good at math or have a great vocabulary. Each one is rated on difficulty. The mediums I can do no problem; the hards with a bit of work; and the very hards we just give up on.

We screwed up the first couple we did too. We've got 3 or 4 different elimination strategies for the mediums now. We're missing something on the very hards, though. I'm not seeing the logic jump that needs to be made on those.

Glad you guys enjoy it. I'm addicted too.
