I simply wanted to announce my sudoku game, Pure Sudoku.

It is a popular, free, easy to use and well regarded sudoku game, with user reviews scoring it at 4 out of 5 stars on the major website download.com.

I hope you enjoy it.

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?

Anyone still out there?
Anyone still out there on this list? Looks like there hasn't been a post in nearly a year.

I just found a great little sudoku book and am working my way through it. Mastering Sudoku Week by Week. Its broken up into a bit on instruction on a particularly solving technique, then a puzzle or two that you need it for, then more instruction, etc. Up through the XWing and Swordfish and stuff like that.

Also..I realllly like the unusual sudoko..like the killer/sum suduko, the one with oddly shaped boxes, the X kind with a diagonal x in the middle. Anything. I've got another cool book Color Sudoko that has about every variation and is all in color. Well I guess they don't have the samurai sudoko but they have a ton of varieties in it. Who else likes the weird ones and if so what ones?

The state of the craze?
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.

Can someone give me some helpful hints on this?

puzzledCollapse )

I'm probably missing something really stupid.  Didn't record the possibilities for the blank spot as there are six possibilities and they won't all be visible on the screen. :)

Pseudo-Ku(tm) is based on today's most popular pencil & paper puzzle game Su Doku, a logic-based placement puzzle game that has taken the world by storm! The objective of the game is to fill the grid so that every row and every 3x3 box contains the digits one to nine. Pseudo-ku is a powerful, yet simple, brain teaser puzzle which can be played for hours upon hours and provide relaxing, enjoyable entertainment!

Click the link to go to Pseudo-Ku's official website, and download a trial version!

Is it me?
It's rare that I can't finish a Sudoku puzzle, even the five star puzzles in the uClick daily sudoku puzzles.

But this one has me stymied.

I've only managed to fill in two of the blanks - a 1 and a 4 in the center column. I've notated all of the rest of the cells with their possible numbers, and I'm searching desperatly for a pattern to narrow down any of the others, and I'm at a complete loss.

Anyone? Can you get farther, and how?

This is awesome!

What made this extra special is the fact that the puzzle itself is relatively difficult. Not atrocious, but it took awhile to complete.

Sudoku Java Applications
I thought you guys might be interested in this:

I wrote two java applets which are up at http://www.nicholasduchnowski.com/sudokuhelper and http://www.nicholasduchnowski.com/sudokusolver .

Sudoku Helper is an applet that automatically does the penciling and crossing out of numbers for you. You can click on a cell and enter type a number on the keyboard, and it will cross out everything that needs to be crossed out.

Sudoku Helper is in a similar format, but this has some built in logic to solve the puzzles. The logic isn't as strong as it is at http://www.sudokusolver.co.uk/ , but I like the Java format better than their JavaScript interface, and it solves most puzzles.

I would like to make the helper application load puzzles rather than make the user type them in, which brings me to a question: can sudoku puzzles be copyrighted? Can I take puzzles from other sites and put them into my database?

The applets were written using a Java wrapper called Processing. The source code is on the pages.

Let me know if you have any comments of suggestions.

Hello, I hope this is ok, if not just delete it.

I've tried to figure out Sudoku, but I just can't get my head around it. One of my hobbies is Geocaching and I need to solve a Sudoku puzzle to complete a Geocaching puzzle. Can some one help me?? Thanks!

I specifically need the A-F numbers.
They say that it's a medium difficulty puzzle.
