Sudoku Game Information Extended
2008-02-14 05:53:00
An Introduction To Sudoku And Sudoku Game Information Extended While many Sudoku game players do not know this, the game has actually been around for well over a thousand years, although the exact date has not been verified. It is speculated that Sudoku originated in Rome, as there are a number of remains from ancient cities containing Latin numbers on squares. These remains served as the antecedent for later Sudoku like creations. The next to pick up on this game, as far as evidence dictates, were the 10th century Arabs, who created a highly similar game which was played in the same way. Shortly after, however, (as the story of Sudoku seems to be) the game was lost to history once again; and was not picked up until a Swiss mathematician named Leonhard Euler reinvented it in the 18th century once again. Even so, the Sudoku game died off once again and was not revived until the early 1980s in the United States. Again, while many Sudoku game players might not know this, the name is on...
Varieties Of Sudoku

Varieties Of Sudoku – The Craze Just Got Crazier Do you remember when there was only one type of sudoku puzzle? It was a simple (or sometimes not so simple) 3×3 grid using only the numbers 1 to 9. Now, as the sudoku craze is sweeping the world, new sudoku varieties are coming out of the woodwork. There are now so many variations on the original sudoku game, that newbies just don’t know where to start. Here is a quick guide to some of the newer sudoku variations with basic rules. Standard Sudoku: This is the original sudoku game (also called Number Place). It is also referred to as a 3×3 (3 mini-grids across, 3 mini-grids down). Each mini-grid, row, and column must contain the numbers 1 through 9. There can be no duplicates in any row, column, or min-grid. Sudoku 4×4 and 5×5: This is similar to a standard sudoku, but there are either 4 mini-grids across and down, or 5 mini-grids across and down. The 4×4 variation usually uses the numbers 1 through 16...

Playing The Game : Sudoku Modern Sudoku was anonymously revived by a retired Hong Kong Judge Wayne Gould, as a logical game disguised as a numbers game. Most people do look at it as a numbers game but if you would see the way the solutions are derived, logic would surely be the key. It has caught on like wildfire and transcends the boundaries of countries with challenging puzzles in every form and style. Sudoku is not restricted to numbers for one can use colors or objects to represent the grid contents that work on the same basic principle without need of modification of the basic rules. It is unique among the games currently published in either print or on the internet in the sense that it is different and unusual from other usually boring puzzles that we are attracted to when we are waiting in queue or waiting for our number to be called to be served. Most puzzles found in newspapers are simply word games in disguise that have lost appeal with most readers. Sudoku on the other han...

Even Addictive Games Promote Family Values

Even Addictive Games Promote Family Values There’s been much debate about the effect that video games and online games have in the development of our children and even in the socialization of adults. Reams have been written about the ways in which video games isolate youngsters and encourage a sedentary lifestyle. Some argue that, when adults play video games and online games to the exclusion of other activities, they effectively distance themselves from others and put up emotional barriers. While moderation and self-control may be important considerations when playing video games and online games, I believe a case can be made that some addictive games promote family values. Some people grow up in “game” families, and others do not. I’m from a family of avid gamers - and this was long before the advent of video games and online games. Some of my first memories are of going with my parents to their friends’ houses and sitting quietly while they played br...

Play And Learn With Educational Jigsaw Puzzle s! Jigsaw puzzles have been entertaining children and adults for centuries. Wooden puzzles were originally created by painting a picture onto a flat piece of wood, then using a jigsaw to cut out the pieces. A man named John Spilsbury is credited with making the first commercial jigsaw puzzle around 1760. His educational puzzles were of maps, and were used to aid in teaching young children geography. As the children put the pieces of the puzzle together, they were able to learn where different countries and regions were. Because of ease of mass production, many modern jigsaw puzzles are made from cardboard. Puzzles for younger children may also be made of brightly colored plastic or foam. These puzzles have larger pieces, which are easier for young hands to manipulate. Simple wooden puzzles, often three dimensional, are also common.

The crossword is the most common variety of word puzzle in the world. Modern crosswords normally take the form of a square grid of black and white squares; the aim is to fill the white squares with letters, forming words (or word phrases) reading across and down, by solving clues which yield the words. The black squares are used to separate words. Squares in which answers begin are usually numbered; the clues are then referred to by these numbers and a direction – for example, “1-Across” or “17-Down”; at the end of the clue the total number of letters is sometimes given for the convenience of the solver, dependent on the style of puzzle and country of publication. Terminology The creating of crosswords is called ‘cruciverbalism’ among its practitioners, who are likewise referred to as ‘cruciverbalists’; the terms derive from the Latin for ‘cross’ and ‘word’. Although the terms have existed for over a decade, n...

Enter The Kakuro Puzzle s Kakuro Puzzles are one of the newest craze to hit the international community that has always been enticed by brainteasers and other mind-boggling activities like the Crossword puzzle. In its early day, what used to be known as the Cross Sums, was subsequently renamed Kakuro Puzzles. The history of Cross Sums is very similar to that of the Sudoku Puzzle. During the 1980s, what was Cross Sums then was taken into Japan by renowned puzzle enthusiast Maki Kaji, who was then the president of the popular Nikoli puzzles. The game was then renamed with its modern day title Kakuro Puzzles. The new name was actually derived from the Japanese word “kasan,” which literally means “addition.” It was combined with the incorrect pronunciation by the Japanese of the english word “cross,” which was “kurosu.” Hence, it was first renamed Kasan Kurosu. However, since it was fairly common in Japanese culture to abbreviate words, it ...

Kakuro Puzzle s In The Modern Setting By Earl Talbot Kakuro puzzles are considered by some as the harder version of its more famous partner, the Sudoku puzzles. Kakuro puzzles are also considered by puzzles enthusiasts as modified versions of crossword puzzles, where numbers, instead of words, are used. Actually, Kakuro puzzles have several similarities to the typical crossword puzzle. For one, the grid in a Kakuro very much resembles the grid used in American crossword puzzle. Also, in a crossword game, a clue is provided but its correct answer is limited to the number of squares provided by the game as well as by the intersecting answers. This is very much the same thing with Kakuro, where a player must find the two single digits that will add up to a specific value but must be limited to the number of squares provided as well as on the intersecting sums. Note must also be given to the fact that in a Kakuro game, no sum should contain the same digit twice. Kakuro puzzles, more comm...

The Puzzling World Of Sudoku Puzzle s By Terry Solomon Sudoku puzzles are the newest puzzle craze currently sweeping across many parts of the United States. The game has only one basic rule, that is, every row and every column on a 3 by 3 box of Sudoku puzzles has to contain the numbers 1 through 9, but only once with no one digit repeating itself. Sudoku puzzles, also referred to as Number Place in the United States, are said to be deceptively simple, since a player can start the game quite easily only to find himself later on getting stuck in the middle of the game with no clear puzzle solution in sight. Good Sudoku puzzles ideally should ultimately have only one solution, using only one’s logic skills, meaning guesswork is not an effective method in solving the puzzle. However, solving Sudoku puzzles on pure logic alone can prove to be a difficult task. For logic to be effective, a puzzle should be able to move progressively.

Team Work And Jigsaw Puzzle s By cdmohatta All of us talk of team work. Sports thrive on teams. Every business wants to develop winning teams. Every president or prime minister brings his own team. What is there in teams? A team is needed because a lone person can not handle all the work. So one gathers different experts, creates a team, sits back and hopes that the team will bring in great results in a short time. But many times, the team proves to be a dismal failure. Why? Let us talk of human psychology for a moment. Ego, that is the first to kill the team spirit. Why should I work under him/her? Why should I give in and accept what you say.

It may sound surreal but at an age where bubblegum pop music has successfully reinvented itself as punk rock through the likes of Avril Lavigne and Simple Plan, a puzzle and a number puzzle at that is able to establish itself as a global phenomenon. Sudoku, which is sometimes spelled as Su Doku, is pronounced as soo-doe-koo. It is an abbreviation of the Japanese phrase suuji wa dokushin ni kagiru which means the digits must remain single. Most people are under the wrong impression that sudoku is of Japanese origin when the only thing Japanese about sudoku is the word sudoku.

Kakuro Blocks By Earl Talbot - There is no straight up, easy way in solving kakuro puzzles. You either sweat it out, thinking of possible combinations, or do the tedious paper and pencil method. Usually, people spend more time trying to think of combinations than actually filling in the puzzles. You know the buzz people get after solving kakuro puzzles?

Addictions – They Seem To Fit Together Like Pieces In A Puzzle By tkugler I’m a person who walked away from both drinking and smoking, after engaging in both activities for more than 15 years, and I’ve always been perplexed at how so called “addictions” seem to fit together. Smoking cigarettes and drinking go together like Peas and carrots. It was always amazing to me how one seemed to go with the other. Smoking was never quite as satisfying as when alcohol was being consumed. And so to, alcohol seemed to elicit the need to spark up a heater. The amount of cigarettes I could choke down while drinking a lot of alcohol was obnoxious! The two activities, or addictions as it were, just seemed to fit together so perfectly. It’s also interesting how the beginning of both practices coincide so perfectly. It wasn’t too long after I had my first alcoholic beverage that the stinky lung darts wound up in my mouth.

As we boarded the plane, some of my companions had bought their laptops, while others had bought music to listen to. I was armed with a bunch of crossword puzzle books. As we settled into our seats, one of my friends started looking decidedly nervous. I asked him what was wrong and he confessed that he had a fear of flying. Naturally some of our friends suggested drinking heavily. I told him that this was a bad idea, since a nervous attitude can equal a nervous stomach. The last thing he nee...
