I'm one such sudoku addict that i cant stop myself to pick up the sudoku book to solve whenever i have free time.. Even my friends have said that i've gone mad on sudoku that i can complete up to 20 puzzles each day.. But still i like it alot because it requires me to stay focus and concentrate on it.. Also it trains up, patience, because u need patience to solve the puzzle and when we get it wrong somewhere, we have to redo the whole thing.. That's where patience come in.. Any sudoku lovers to share their views??

hehehe...hello! are you still addicted to it? or already shifted to kakuro? what makes people addicted to it? because they are enjoying it and they find fun and satisfaction when they were able to fill up all the boxes! hehe huh! i think if i were going to finish even one puzzle i will be really really happy! haha but i am not patient enough in doing it, maybe because i am not really interested coz i like crossword more... but i do have a friend here, everytime she hands a newspaper, the first thing that she'll be doing is to complete the sudoku puzzle and i think she didn't get tired with it...haha and she do it really fast!

sometimes when we are already get used to one thing, it becomes boring in the long run, and so we are looking for something new & better...haha i think this is also what happens to some couples! wow! nice comparison...hehe it reminds me of one movie that i watch but in this movie he compares their life in a rubik's cube... so the two of you should not be together coz you might fight over the newspaper...hehe

haha =D IT's something like that.. BUt still, i will be moving back to the original thing after some time because there are many different ways to solving the same puzzle.. haha =D There wont be a time, whereby one is using exactly the same method to solve it.. hehe haha =D Rubik's cube?? IT's my weakness link!! lol =D NAh, we wont be fighting over the papers for sure.. Instead, we will share and see who complete it first, before telling the other party, "LOSER"!! lol =D

i love answering a sudoku puzzle! ^__^ but i only answer those on level 4-6. lower difficulty doesnt spark any interest on me. i love thinking of what number is missing and i love going through each boxes, each rows and columns to make sure i put the correct numbers. its satisfying when i finish a puzzle that i really put so much effort on. ^__^

haha.. Welcome, sudoku lover!! Sudoku is just so amazing that it can make me lose track of time.. When doing it wrong, i will just erase the whole puzzle and do it all over.. When i complete it, i will feel a sense of satisfaction.. LOL

its really an effective past time. i answer sudoku puzzles i see on newspapers and magazines and i usually use a red ballpoint pen. so i really cant erase it when i made some mistake. ^__^;; as far as i can remember, there are only 2 puzzles i wasnt able to finish because i made a mistake and i didnt want to start over again. LOL

sudoku is a game about 9 squares being together into a big square.. In each small square, there are 9 slots, so in total of the whole puzzle, there will be 9 horizontal and 9 vertical slots.. And the rule of the game is to put in the numbers from 1-9.. However, the numbers can only appear once in each horizontal slot as well as vertical slot.. Once completed, u can see that none of the 9 horizontal and vertical slots will have the same numbers appearing :) have fun with it..

I also love sudoku... i think it is better that the ordinary crossword puzzle... at first i don't bother myself with it but then when i was in a very boring job with nothing to do... i started answering one from a newspaper and since then i got hooked... i even bought a book that i bring with me everyday so that when i have nothing to do... i have my ever faithful sudoku book to keep me company... Cheers to the inventor of Sudoku...

haha.. yeah, i started out from solving those from the papers too but soon it became bit too easy except for the occasionally 5 stars puzzles.. But i cant wait for the everyday papers to come and thus i bought the book instead.. haha..
