Busy! Busy! The day is full of busy schedules, attending to daily routines, commitments, deadlines, etc. As we retire, life seems to stand still for a while. Today, with a lot of time, we can do everything at leisure. We can listen to our favourite songs, watch our favourite movies.
Many of us love to solve puzzles in the daily newspapers and magazines. Late Smt. Indira Gandhi, our beloved Prime Minister of yesteryear was a fan of puzzles. She used to solve puzzles from the newspapers in her free time as a relaxation technique.
Sudoku, a number game, is a sort of puzzle, a favourite one for puzzle lovers. Though it sounds like maths it’s not actually maths. The advantage with Sudoku is it is a single person game. The puzzle looks like a crossword puzzle with some of the cells filled with numbers.
The rules of the game are also very simple. It is a game with numbers from 1 to 9. One has to use all nine numbers and one basic rule is no number should repeat while filling the boxes.
Just like any other puzzle game, there are ways to solve it quickly. Take a grid of 3x3 square. Write the numbers 1 to 9 in each cell in a tic tac toe pattern. Erase the pre-printed number from the numbers written. Follow the same process for all the grids. Follow this link to learn stepwise techniques and tips.
Puzzles, especially those with numbers are regarded as brain stimulators and act as health capsules for the brain.
With all these benefits, isn’t it a habit to get into? We bring Sudoku to you right here! Enjoy the online version and you can soon even take part in regular city level tournaments or just play for fun!
