I can’t say whether Sudoku has really “blown over” but it certainly doesn’t seem to be the replacement for crossword puzzles that many people expected. I just recently decided, however, that I could use a good number game to get my brain grinding – and it seems that Sudoku serves that purpose. I’ve been crankin’ through a series of puzzles of progressive difficulty using a little “gadget” on my Google home page. It’s pretty fun for me, and I like figuring out the patterns and strategies to help me finish them faster.
I have a tendency to wait until a fad blows over before I’ll use a product at the epicenter of the trend, whether it be a Nalgene bottle or cargo shorts (but I’m still not using chipotle peppers in my cooking).
