### 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

### Re: Sudoku

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.

### Re: Sudoku

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.
