    My latest book describes them as 'Use the word list to fill in the puzzle diagram. Words fit into the diagram reading across and down, as in crossword puzzles. Cross off each word in the list as you use it. As you fill in across words, some down words will automatically be filled in at the same time...When you have filled in the diagram (and used all the words in the word list), you have solved the puzzle.'

    Check them out, too! You'll be hooked!
    I love this type of puzzle, but haven't been able to find where I can play them on the Internet. Can anyone give me a link?

    I also can not get my mind to function with Soduko. I have tried and my brain just shuts down.

    Re: Sudoku

    I just started teaching these in a mini-unit I'm doing on Japan (7 6-day groups doing history, sudoku, haiku, origami, anime mythology,and a number game using the Japanese numbers). My daughter got me hooked on these this summer. I've progressed to the very hard ones, but actually enjoy the slightly easier ones (medium hard) better because I like the gratification of completing them. The more you do them, the more strategies you figure out. If you tried before and didn't get it, have someone sit down with you and show you some strategies. It really is good brain exercise.

    Re: Sudoku

    Wow, it's been a year already since this thread started? I'm still trying umpteen puzzles a day, mostly at the expert level. Some can take 15 minutes before I give up; I've finished a few in about 3 minutes. I'll normally play until I successfully do at least two in a row.

    Re: Sudoku

    I have one in my purse, by my bed, at school, and in my chemo bag. I like to do them in mechanical pencil which I don't use for anything else. I break the leads if I try to write with them. I'm a messy puzzler writing tiny numbers in corners etc. and when they start to fall like dominoes I just write over everything. I'm serious - the finished ones are a jumbly mess! Love it. When I finish one, I put a smiley face in the top corner of the page. If I mess up I put a frowning face and come back later and erase it all and start again. Here's the really weird thing though, which I wish someone could explain to me... I do them much better with my glasses off, held close to my face than with my glasses on held at a normal distance. I mean incredibly better. I can be stuck glasses on (or more likely contacts in) go take them out and hold it close and find the problem in no time. Why?

    Re: Sudoku

    Each of my sons teachers started them on Sudoku in fourth grade. It is supposed to help build logic skills.
    My mom gave me a book with circular Sudokus and 16 square grid Sudokus. ACK!
