A couple of days ago, I took the kids to Mcdo playground and since I didn't bring any book for me to read, I read the newspaper and tried Su|do|ku for the very first time and now I'm hooked...
I have always been intrique by this, but have never sat down and do the puzzle. Despite its simplicity, it took me 1 hour to do the puzzle in the newspaper, and yet I still didn't get it.
Yesterday, I went to the dollar store and bought myself 2 books on Sudoku. Today, I bought Dora The Explorer and Spongebob Squarepant's version of Sudoku for my kids to try.
Su|do|ku... an abbreviated form of a Japanese expression meaning "single number."
The object is to fill in the blank squares in such a way that each of the numbers 1 to 9 appears exactly once in each row, column and block. If the puzzle has been constructed properly, there should be only one way to complete the diagram within the rules of the game.
Try it... I'll be posting the answers later in my comment box.
