a new addiction

I have discovered Su Doku.
I am mildly addicted to these menace-ful wee puzzles.

I am not very good at them.

On a happier note
I completed maybe 2/3 of the
Press cryptic crossword puzzle on Wednesday
which makes me wonder if cryptic puzzle ability kicks in at a particular age.

It is in my genes
but hasn’t til this point been in my pen!

I had heard about this, thanks to Marcus Lush on the radio.

Just went and did one, first try correct. I strangely find it quite easy, thanks to my computer science days (it’s very much like error checking, for those geeks who understand).

I don’t know whether to respect Sudoku or not, since it isn’t the hardest puzzle to CREATE. I can make a sudoku puzzle in 1 minute that takes me ten times longer to complete. Not like those rediculously difficult cryptic crosswords; that person must be a total genuis, whoever creates them!

But, now that I’ve given sudoku a go, maybe I’ll try it some more 😉

Am way into them also. I set myself up a little template on the computer so I could easily make notes about the possible number combinations and delete them without the whole thing looking a mess.

But strangely, every time I use the computer template I make mistakes, but if I use the good old pen and paper, I have a much better average.

Hi,

Thanks for mentioning my site. I have just added easy, medium and hard puzzles for each day. I hope you continue to enjoy them. Any suggestions, just send a note via the site.

Gath, that’s a dreadfully addictive online version. I especially like the way you can put the possibilities in.

Other versions I’ve liked are
* http://www.websudoku.com/
* http://www.timesonline.co.uk/section/0,,23509,00.html but you can only have 3 possibilities and for harder puzzles you need more than that!
