I was totally hooked when I first starter playing Sudoku. My 5 year old even learned how to play. I used to play online, from a Sudoku book, the newspaper...wherever I could find a puzzle. I hated that they are daily puzzles because I would want more as soon as I completed one. LOL. I am not as into it as I used to be at all. Now instead, Im hooked on myLot.

My mom plays Sudoku all the time. She's hooked. I've never played but I would like to get a book and try it. I'm too addicted to MyLot right now.=)

I know...I cant believe Ive been on myLot now for two weeks. This is so much fun, and even though its all online, I feel like I get to know people a little because of all the discussions. You never feel alone. =)

I love being able to respond to friends and share discussions with people that share similar interests. It's been a huge part of my day for the small amount of time I've been a member.=)

I play it 2 or 3 times a day as a kind of practice for my brain. I like it very much, generally I play it on websudoku.com.

No I am not as hooked on it as I used to be. I don't have time and I figured most puzzles out. I am like you hooked on mylot. LOL :-)

Not me. I never got hooked on the game. I tried it a couple of times but didn't like it. I guess it takes too much thought. LOL. I already have too many hobbies so no loss there. Maybe when I retire I'll learn how to play. My mother in law loves the game and we gave her a board set for Christmas. It had like 250 different puzzles. It was really nice and I've never seen another one like it in stores.

I used to play this all the time. I used to do it on the computer and I even have a couple of sudoku books. I don't play it now nearly as much as I used to though. Maybe the novelty of it wore off. Sometimes I'll play it if I happen to see it in a newspaper which is rare since I hardly ever buy a newspaper. ~Kythe42 http://lemurianphoenix.blogspot.com

Nah, not any more. I got some for Christams one year and played it until I finished the books. I must have done too much of it at one time because I don't want to ever play it again.

Hello fellow Bosoxer....I am just as hooked on Sudoku as I was when I first started...since I usually only work the out when I am waiting, on a train, or some other situation that lends itself to playing. I have a CD program but I prefer magazines because I can keep them in my purse and am ready to go at a moment's notice. I too am quite fond of mylot and it absolutely takes the place of sudoku....especially since I do not have a laptop. Just curious.....where's u at? I am an original Maineiac and have been a Sox fan since 9 months before I was born.

I think that's great...nine months before you were born! That means you had no choice but to be a Sox fan. =) I live in Nashua, NH. I grew up in MA.

My mother and grandfather were avid fans and used to listen to the games in the 1930's on an old crystal set with each of them using one earphone....at least that is what they told me. And every time something great happened my grandfather told me that my mother would put her earphone on her belly so that I could hear about the momentous plays of BoSox players. I went to Fisher in Boston in the mid-50's and got to see the Great Ted Williams, among others, in Fenway. Also got to meet Johnny Pesky in person when he was in Washington, D.C. visiting a mutual friend of ours. Have many wonderful, as well as sad, memories of the BoSox. Was a little upset that I didn't get to see the series they were champions but baseball is not very big here in Portugal. Oh well, can't win em all.
