Sudoku is a game that is very fashinable in Britain at the moment. Everyone seems to be captured.
The rules are very simple:
Fill in the grid so that every row, every column, and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9.
That's all there is to it. There's no math involved. The grid has numbers, but nothing has to add up to anything else. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic. It's fun. It's challenging. It's addictive!
I tried one of these puzzles last Sunday and spent the rest of the afternoon with the Times on my lap scribbling little numbers only to find out after hours that my first guess was wrong and I had to restart. How frustrating!
So I decided to solve this problem once for all. Why must I think when that can be done by my computer?
You can use the program for solving sudokus yourself (and get some help if you need it) or let the computer solve them for you (much more satisfactory :)
You can also generate your own puzzles. But please be aware that the generating option is not too sophisticated. It works by basically finding a solution to a random sudoku and then taking away random numbers.
A simple rule is applied to see if the puzzle is unique: the solution of the puzzle is compared to the solution of the transposed puzzle. If both are the same then the puzzle is very probable unique. For difficult puzzles this sometimes takes some time.
