I'm great at math. I don't find Sudoku has much to do with math skills since it would work the same with, say, the first nine letters of the alphabet or nine different colours. To me, it's all about logic and, when it doesn't solve the first time through, extremely frustrating circular thinking.
A moderate rated Sudoku usually takes me about 10 minutes to complete. Yesterday, I spent a half hour doing the same puzzle 3 times and still didn't get it. I just tried it again and finished it in about 7 minutes. A brain is a funny thing :rolleyes:
Malibu and Divingcowgirl: You should google Sudoku and try a puzzle. Some people, like me unfortunately, find them addicting.
...and what am I smoking - 'spl'iffs, of course!
