I just joined considering my love of the puzzle.
Does anyone know what the record for a standard 9X9 grid is for easy, medium and hard levels?
Any thoughts about where you see the hobby of solving sudoku?
It seemed to me to explode about a year ago with magazines and books taking up shelves of the big bookstores. It has since waned for me personally as I can only solve so many before filling one in feels mechanical.
Has it the staying power of the other pencil puzzle favorites, the crossword or word search?
It doesn't seem as though anyone knows of the Su Doku handheld game sold at Wal-Mart? My mom got it for me for Christmas and I haven't put it down since. It's much easier than getting it in a newspaper or book. It has Beg. and Adv. Levels, 4 on each. On the Beg. levels, the numbers blink if you place them in the wrong spot, but on the Adv. they don't. It's pretty cool.
