I just never could understand the Sudoku bug that seems to have bitten everyone. I worked a few and thought, "This is about as much fun as taking a math test in school." Then, when my brother-in-law was visiting last week, he explained how he approached solving them, and they seemed simpler, somehow. He also figured that I was starting out with puzzles that were waaaaaaay too hard since I was getting them online from a puzzle site. We picked up a book that had a series of puzzles, easy to hard, and I worked a few. He was right, I needed to work my way up to the real tuffies. When I was sick yesterday and couldn't sleep anymore but didn't feel like getting up, I worked Sudoku puzzles in bed all evening. Maybe I see the appeal, but it's still like taking a math test. I'll stick to crosswords.
