Any other Sudoku addicts out there?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So, I've just discovered the joy that are Sudoku puzzles!

Right now, I'm doing the extra extra easy ones...I haven't quite found my Sudoku "groove" yet! Any pointers would be welcome?

So are any of the rest of you addicted? Have any online puzzles to share?

I just started doing them, too. Aren't they fun? I have no tips to give you, since I'm doing the easy ones, too. Here's a site I found. There is a new puzzle every day and it also has an archive of all previous puzzles. Good luck and have fun!

My boyfriend brought one home for me once cause he knows I love number puzzles. What I do is write in each box the possible numbers it could have and then erase them as the 3X3 box fills up. Does that make any sense? lol

Hi, I'm Kelly, and I'm a Sudoku addict.

Here's my favorite site:

You can do them online, or print them up. I usually print the harder ones, and do the easy ones online to see how fast I can do them. I'm down to the 7-8 minute range, which is, apparently, only average...sigh.

They are ranked "easy", "medium", "hard", and "evil". I mostly do "hard", and can do them consistently. I've solved a handful of "evil" ones, but they are truly evil!

I thought I'd be tired of doing them by now, but nope, no signs of the addiction subsiding!

People at work seemed to be obsessed by them. They keep trying to explain them to me but I just dont get them.

I am OBSESSED!!! I have 3 books on the go and my boyfriends brother got me Carol Vordermans Electronic Sudoku for Christmas! I carry it in my bag and if I'm bored, or waiting somewhere I do it then! I'm no mathmatician and thought it would be difficult but it really isn't about that.

Oooh I was introduced to this over the weekend and had to have it explained a few times (blonde over here lol) and what a lot of fun! I am now trying to track down the books - apparantly you can get them really cheap from some of the bookshops here but of course they don't all stock it...

Yay! Other Sudoku addicts! Man, when I first got into it, I could spend literally hours doing puzzles. Not very conducive to getting the housework done. Now I'm limiting myself to one online puzzle a day. I'm definitely going to check out the above links. currently, I just go to msn games page, but you don't get to choose the level and I like the medium or hard ones. Personally, I don't see the point of the diabolical ones. In the end, it's just down to guessing and trial and error instead of logic, so I find them annoying.

I really am terrible at 99% of puzzles out there, due to a supreme lack of patience. For some reason, I've really gotten into Sudoku...

ARRRGGGHHH! i got a book of these recently from a friend - i can't do them at all! i find them extremely frustrating. crossword puzzles, on the other hand - i'm great at them. i'm really more of a word/letter person than a number person

I found a Sudoku 'widget' for my Mac dashboard. I love this game!

I was just introduced to them last week. I'm a major NYTimes Crossword puzzle addict.
