I have a Sudoku project hovering in the mist above me I may or may not dive into and I am curious to know a bit more about the topic from a grounded view.
Do you Sudoku?
If you play, why do you play?
Where do you find your puzzles?
Do you create your own puzzles?
If you create your own puzzles, what do you use to create them?

What are the secrets to Sudoku success?
What are your biggest Sudoku obstacles?
What is your favorite Sudoku book?
What is your favorite Sudoku resource?
What is your favorite Sudoku website?
How long does it take to complete a Sudoku puzzle?
How much time do you spend playing Sudoku every day?
What else do I need to know about Sudoku that I failed to ask?
I thank you.

  1. Hey there,
    I played a few puzzles successfully, and may be interested in playing more if I stumble upon them 🙂
    Why do I play? Well, because I enjoy gaming in general, and intellectual masturbation in particular 🙂
    Other games would be jigsaws, chess, go…
    Cheers!

  2. That’s very interesting, because I had never heard about Sudoku until earlier today. A friend of mine is selling Sudoku e-books on eBay. I think he said they were .99 and buy 2 get one free, something like that. I’ll provide you with a link if you’re interested.
    I’ve never actually played them myself, but it looks rather interesting.

  3. Hiya Tickles!
    Thanks for the information on your exposure to Sudoku. I appreciate it!
    Yes, please send me the link from your friend. I won’t publicly publish the link here but I would like to take a private look.
    If you decide to give Sudoku a try as a first-timer, please come back here and let me know what you think of the game. Too hard? Too easy? Addicting? Silly? 🙂

  4. Heh! I’ll find out when I continue the puzzle. 😀 But I do know one or two of the numbers are correct. Did the middle box.
    If I still remember this post after 2 months (that’s when my exam ends), I’ll return and answer your questions then. :p

  5. I have a SuDoKu widget on my Powebook desktop. I do one or two every day. It seems to help improve my ability to problem solve and think quickly. (Or maybe that’s just faulty logic.)
    By the way, I’ve got you blogrolled. Thanks for the entertainment.

  6. David,
    I linked to a great free Sudoku site. It’s one of my favourites because it gives really useful advice and tells you the errors you’ve made even when it’s not obvious you made a mistake (as in it anticipates a problem in the future…)

  7. Hi Courtney!
    Thanks for the keen web URL.
    Tell me the difference between the easy and hard puzzles. How is difficulty determined? All the puzzles use the same numbers… 😀 Do the hard puzzles give you less starter numbers?
    Thanks for the detailed comment!

  8. The hard ones require more logic to figure them out. I don’t know how they make them more difficult. The numbers are spaced differently? I’m not really sure!
    But I finally got the one I was working on last night. Which made me happy. Until my buddy got the same one in a matter of hours and I felt slow. 🙂

  9. i am a sudoku finatic, they are so addictive, they difently pass the time on the way to work, i measure how fast i was by seeing at what point in my journey i have finished each puzzle…although some take me the entire journey and back
