SUDOKU

Recommended Posts

so I read in a newspaper yesterday that British Airways are

banning this game called 'sudoku' from flights because the

stewarts were playing it obsessively. That caught my interest....

 

then I flip back a few pages.... and there's one of the little games.

 

< let the all consuming addiction begin >

 

Let's just say that I had no idea about how to solve one of these addictive little fuckers,

so I spent something like 2 hours scribbling numbers down. When I finally solved it... I danced around my house, touchdown style!

 

http://www.sudoku.com/ - here's all the info you need on how to play.

here's the deal:

each box of 9 squares contains the numbers 1-9, but only once.

each row and colum has the numbers 1-9, but again, only once.

^ solution to the above puzzle

 

 

I've decided that I will master this little game, and flex the grey matter.

and it would be a great icebreaker with her. You know that's what it all comes down to.

Oh man I love these! I ALWAYS get one box left and realize that one row just absolutely fucks everything I've done for the last hour. Then I scream and throw things....

 

They have actually been a helpful bonding tool with my girlfriend's dad and myself....

A couple of weeks ago this completely took over our department and absolutley NOTHING got done for like 3 days. We decided to cut it cold turkey... and now it's popping up in the newspaper. It's the very first thing I do when I get home.

I started seeing books at my work about it, and i thought it looked stupid, so i check out this thread on 12oz

and i download a computer version of it.

i must say

this is keeping me from doing my homework.

ooooooooooooo. Someone was working one one of these, and I-apparently breaking great concentration- asked what it was and received a mumbled (I guess this is what was said.)"Sudoku." And now I know waht it is. Another mystery solved with the help of 12oz.

I did one of these in like seven minutes...then i tried another one a few days later and couldn't do it.

 

so fuck this game and fuck beginner's luck.

it's not beginners luck.

 

some can be beat with a simple strategy, but others need totally abstract thinking skills.

i downloaded a sudoku widget ages ago and finally tried it yesterday. i gave up when i realized if i started getting into it, i would just end up getting really really pissed off when i couldn't figure it out.
