Sudoku

It is just a curiosity question. Does anyone here truly enjoy playing Sudoku? Just wondering after my brief encounter with it.

I play, but enjoy it? That takes a rare breed

Actually I can become semi addicted to it. One of the few kinds of purely deductive logic I get to do. Part of my personal challenge is finding out how much I can get done entirely in my head before writing anything down.

Is there really logic in it, Forest? It seems to me it is just guesswork. If one number doesn't work, try another. I suppose I'm not thinking straight. Or logically.

Thank you both. Just wanted to hear some other opinions of a game I fast rejected.

It really is 100% pure deductive logic. No guesswork necessary at all.

I'll take your word for it. Frustrating little game anyway. Agreed?

No. As Forest says it is entirely logical. On average I suppose I play fifty games a month, but in bursts.I don't recall ever finding it frustrating. I may occasionally get annoyed with myself when I make an error because of haste. (I like to solve against the clock.)

All of which just means I'm doing it wrong. Oh well. I still have crossword puzzles, Anagrams, and dozens of others.

You all have fun.
