Anyone play?

ETA: it's a numbers/logic sort of game that's really addicting.

I think I do them wrong. I can always solve them, but it takes a long time

I've always hated math/logic puzzle games.

If you're going to expend that kind of mental energy, why not do it on something worthwhile.

Get a math book and start working your way through it. Do all of the problems in each chapter. There's some worthwhile "brain teasers" that might actually make you some money someday.

Everytime I try and add 2 + 2 I get Omaha.

They are all solveable. But they only have one solution. If it all checks out 1-9 in each row (h&v) and each grid then you got it.

Um.....can't get it to accept any inputs. I run my mouse over, shaded numbers show up. Is there something else to it?

Clicking does nothing.

Thoughts?

You have to download the program (free trial for 28 days or something like that). Or you can just print the front page and do that puzzle on a hard copy as a teaser. I prefer to do it hard copy anyway because there are less cheats available. The program can be set to tell you when you get one wrong, it lets you do branches etc. With the old fashioned hard copy way you wear down more pencil erasers.

They offer this puzzle in the Washington Post next to the crosswords. It's probably available in other papers too. Hubby found another that has it (NY Times? something - sorry, can't remember which...)

Here's a sample, it's an easy one.



From the site:


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.

Solving time is typically
from 10 to 30 minutes,
depending on your skill and experience

Bump.. (Cause I searched to avoid a dupe)

There's a bit on it right now on NBC5 Chicago news. I'm almost afraid to start looking at the game, in case I get hooked.

Wife is getting into it, I will stick to the crossword puzzle.

I had to print blank grid sheets for my bride. She is so into this!

Like you, I'll stick with crosswords.
