I am hooked with this numbers positioning game. Anyone here who plays sudoku? How fast can you finish level 3?

Hi, I love to play sudoku, but I don't know anything about level 3. I am looking for some freeware flash game based on Sudoku. I've not found one yet. I had a trial version which I used to play a lot. Now that the trial period is over I can't play that anymore. But I solve those published in newspaper, whenever I have time. Sudoku is very interesting game. I was totally crazy about it. It can be very addictive too. I wonder who invented the game. Thanks so much for starting this wonderful discussion. God bless you

get, Mr. Sudoku, a Japanese, invented the game. Sudoku can really be addicting. I used to buy two or three newspapers just to play sudoku. But in the bookstores, there are sudoku booklets that cost only Php 15. Stay with the printed ones, for your eyes' sake.

I could bust the motherboard for playing Sudoku. Then I will bury it and print a Sudoku on the Tombstone. I will solve newspaper ones with pencils and keep them so that after a year I can erase them and solve them again. Perhaps I will keep one under my pillow. I may also save money to build a fund in the name of Sudoku and there will be tournaments each year. The winners will get stuffs from my fund. If I ever marry I will teach my wife and children how to play the game, so that generation after generation we play it, and then perhaps someday, people will call us one big Sudoku family. I can do almost anything for Sudoku.

But if it helps, there is already one Asian Sudoku competition in Singapore I think. Perhaps you can vent your sudoku anxiety there and turn the woes into bucks. Good way to have money for future wife and family.

I have the game in my mobile and it was quite interesting in the beginning. But soon i lost interest in it when I find that there is a helping option which indicates the wrong placements. So, I find no challenge and quit playing the game in my mobile. But it is worth time passing.

srganesh, the newspaper puzzles are quite exciting. Sometimes, there are two puzzles partly juxtaposed and you have to solve both. I solve the puzzles when I am waiting for my daughters at McDonald's. Many parents wait there for their children too and they try to solve the crossword. Grab the printed sudokus. There are no clues.

Thanks for the idea to try on newspaper puzzles. But we use to buy only our regional language paper which is not in English and I have seen such sudoku puzzles in only those papers. Anyhow, I will try it when I have a chance. Even the mobile games will be a challenge, if we don't go for the help.

I love Sudoku. Whenever I have an appointment or when I travel, I always take a book of Sudoku puzzles with me. I also keep a book of them by my bed to do at bedtimes. It helps me empty my mind of stress.

Hello, Eileen. I love sudoku, but I do the Samurai sudokus, which is 5 interlocking grids. It's more challenging than the single grids. I like to print them off and fill in with a pencil rather than doing them on the computer screen. I've always got one on the go. Check it out here: : http://www.samurai-sudoku.com/ :

I used to play Sudoku on my computer. Ubuntu Linux has a Sudoku computer program with three levels of difficulty. Anyway, I find the puzzle addictive and the difficult ones are really time consuming to solve. I stopped playing or solving Sudoku puzzles after I noticed that I have not done much work during the day when I was still very much addicted to them.

True bloggeroo, I have not solved one in a long time too because of the very reasons you stated.

I love Sudoku! But I only do ones that I find in newspapers, and I have never done them online or on a cell phone or anything like that. Maybe I should try though! A lot of people seem to like the other versions of sudoku as well. Does anyone know of a good online sudoku site by any chance? (preferably a free one...)

puccagirl, the printed one is far better than the online and mobile sudoku. You can always pause and leave it when you have to eat or do something. Then you can always grab the sudoku and your pen when you are ready to do the puzzle again.

Hi. I like solving sudoku puzzles too. In fact, I have a game application like that in my mobile. However, there's no such thing as level in my game. Only 1-100 different Suduko puzzles which of the same difficulty. I can solve some puzzles fast but it takes time for some.

Hi type, I solve the ones in the Inquirer and the puzzles has stars to show the level of difficulty. 1 star means easy, 5 stars is difficult. Most people I see at McDonald's (where the Inquirer is free), can solve up to level 3. I am sort of "mayabang" (proud) when I get my puzzle done soon enough and I watch them struggle with quizzical brows. I can do level 5 easily. My daughters say I am bad. But I just wanted to have a good laugh! The Sunday Magazine sudoku is a challenger and I have not ever solved any of it yet. So my daughters say "See, you think you are the best sudoku player in the world. You are not ma, you are not!" Point well taken.
