Just what is Sudoku?
The rules are simple: “Fill in the grid so that every row, every column, and every 3-by-3 box contains the digits 1 through 9.” But from that brief description, aggravation sets in.
“Sudoku” is a Japanese word that, roughly translated, means “unique number.” In Britain, in little more than six months, it has gone from obscurity to fad to mania.
The innocuous-looking logic puzzles, first introduced in November by the Times of London and then taken up by almost every other major newspaper in the nation, are causing commuters to miss their stops and students to skip their homework.
Sounds cool to me! But where do you find this “sudoku” you ask? Right here.
Logic puzzles. Gotta love ’em!
