Sudoku: When EQ is down ...

Postby Galarina » Wed Jan 18, 2006 7:48 am

or when I don't have time for EQ, I've been playing Sudoku a little bit.
You can play for free at:
http://www.websudoku.com/

I only play the easy level puzzles, and evidently I'm not very good.

LOL, I posted about sudoku here almost a year ago it seems. Good to see someone's finally beginning to share the addiction.

I think my only memorable reply to that post was Unikyte saying it hurt her head, hehe.

I used to go to http://www.sudokufun.com because you could race other people for solving time there. I actually made #4 fastest once.

I remember that Qmaus, hehe. But I couldn't remember the site. I remember when I did go to it back then, I couldn't actually input any text. Maybe it just had a problem on that particular day, but it was just like a displayed text web page. I could move my text cursor over it but not actually enter any numbers.

Now I'm hooked tho. Thank you very much! :x Still not very good yet.

LOL... this Christmas, my brother discovered Sudoku. He's normally someone who's verging on ADD and can't sit still for more than 30 seconds, all twitchy and ready to explode. Well, I saw him sit for about 3 hours doing one after another, totally absorbed!

Sudoku is powerful.

In order to input text in the sudoku grid at sudokufun.com, you need to click the button to enter the speed challenge. Took me a while to figure that out as well.

OK, thanks hon. I haven't to that site yet. Going now. I guess I was confused and was referring to websudoku.com.

Thanks.

Wow, you rock Skratz. Especially compared to me, lol. But I never said I was smart. That would have been too funny. LOL.
I can't even do most of the ones at sudokufun.com, the site Qmaus listed. They're just too hard for me.

haha I tried this again today & I'm down to 7 minutes, 31 seconds from 9:11 on my first one.

Give me 50 more games and I should have it down to 5 minutes.

Arg, numbers are so foreign!!

Why would you post this? I'm smart and this makes my head hurt. Probably because between work and eq I dont get enough sleep to think about other things :lol:

WOOT I'm getting better (about 50 games later, lol). At least there is improvement, if not I'd be sad since everyone else kicks my butt!
