A new puzzle: SUDOKU. I saw in the paper today that the latest rage in Japan is a new puzzle call sudoku. Basically, it is a puzzle that is solved by logic. It is all numbers but you don't add or subtract, just figure out where each number goes. You complete the grid so that each row, column and 3-by 3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9. Well, I solved it. It took about 3 hours but I enjoyed this much more than a crossword and I'm sure I'll get faster as I have more experience and get familiar with the way it works out. I'm not showing you the solution but you can see that by "process of elimination" you can narrow down the choices, just like a crossword. Try it!
