The board game Sudoku is the result of the ever
popular "Sudoku" puzzle which is the Japanese condensed version meaning "the
digits must occur only once.
The numbers in Sudoku puzzles are used for
ease; arithmetic relationships between numerals are irrelevant.
Any set of
unique symbols will serve the same purpose; letters, shapes, or colors may be
used without changing the rules of the game. The popularity of the puzzle game
is that the rules are easy, yet the line of reasoning required to solve the
puzzle may be a challenge. Regardless whether the puzzle is paper origin or
the new board game Sudoku the fun factor is the same!
