I never thought it was good to play this numbers game. Not until I have a job far away from our house that I had to think of a way to get entertained for the duration of the trip. By solving the Sudoku and criss-cross puzzle, It almost feel that the trip was very short. Just Sharing, SFC

No doubt this number game has become so popular in recent time. The popularity has made it a world game which was first invented in japan. People love to play it whenever its possible to play . Many people prefer it play while travelling and its really a great pass time. The long journey also turns into a short one . I am a fan of this game. And it has become hobby for me , and i have bought a sudoku book and also bought a game cd. While travelling also i love to play the game.

Thanks for the information. I believe you when you say it is popular, most of the people I see on the subway ponders on the puzzle on their way to their destination.:)

I love playing Sudoku. My dad loves Sudoku too. However, no matter how I love Sudoku, I do not play it while on long trips on any land transportation. If I am on board a plane or ship, I would. There was a time when I tried working on a Sudoku puzzle while on a long drive with my boyfriend. After a few minutes, I got this terrible headache and really felt nauseous.

If the road is bad or the vehicle does not run smooth on the road, you could really get a headache. I stop solving the puzzle in this kind of situation:)

I play it all the time. I like it because it uses some logical reasoning skills. It's also a game that I can start and then pick up later. That happens a lot in my house, since I have two kids. I am wondering if I could find a kid's version for my son who is 6. He'll be 7 in September though.

It actually stimulates your brain. There are sudoku puzzles in bookstores. Just get the simple puzzles for your kids.:)

I never get along with Sudoku unless it's some form of electronic version, probably because I make too many mistakes. I've played it on the Nintendo DS (Part of that Brain Training thing), and had a version on my Palm for ages.

It is really nice to play the electronic version. But I prefer to use the one on the free tabloid on the subway/train stations :)

I buy a sudoku book when I travel long distances because it makes the distance much shorter. And I dont get bored. I think it is a good game to pass your time.

I used to have sudoku on my cell phone but when i had to get a new one, they couldn't replace it. :( I like to play it in the car, so I got one for my nintendo DS so I can play it wherever I go. I'm better than my husband but not an expert like some people are. We even have it for the PS3 haha, it was a free download trial.

I do not know what that game is, I don't usually play games on trips, but sometimes I will read or just look at the scenery out the window.

I tend to read or do word searches. Sudoku puzzles frustrate me but my mom loves them. I'm not so good with numbers though.

I am pretty lousy with numbers, therefore I never really got the hang of sudoku. It just doesn't make sense to me. I do like wordsearches and crossword puzzles, though.
