Sudoku

I just tried to play Sudoku, a logic-based placement puzzle game. The name Sudoku is the Japanese abbreviation of a longer phrase, "suji wa dokushin ni kagiru," meaning "the digits must remain single"; it is a trademark of puzzle publisher Nikoli Co. Ltd in Japan (source: Wikipedia).

Well, I think it is quite difficult to play this game (so far, especially for a beginner like my self), but I realy enjoy this game (eventhough I need very long time to finish 9x9 grids).

Oh ya, for the rules of playing Sudoku, Wikipedia has a complete entry of it. The rules are quite easy, and I think, you can directly playing this game after finish reading the entry. The aim of this game is to enter a numerical digit from 1 through 9 in each cell of a 9×9 grid made up of 3×3 subgrids (called "regions"), starting with various digits given in some cells (the "givens"). Each row, column, and region must contain only one instance of each numeral.

is sudoku new to Indonesia, too? Because it is quite new to Germany. About half a year or so ago it started with one newspaper providing sudoku for their readers. It soon became a trend, and now almost every newspaper is offering sudoku. When I was in Mannheim last week and took a taxi from the station, the taxi driver was busy with sudoku... and all the way to my destination he told me about sudoku and how difficult it is at the beginning. I myself haven't tried it yet... no time... need my time for ndecke... ;)

@ni londo:
I just tried this game on the night when I made this post :) So I don't know how popular Sudoku in Indonesia is.

My suggestion, you should try this game anytime you have a lot of free time or after you got enough time for "ndecke"... :P
