Here are some reasons why Sudoku has become one of the most beloved puzzles in the world:
Play is good for the well-being of the brain
Sudoku is a logic puzzle game that makes the left hemisphere of the brain work. Solving Sudoku puzzles is totally satisfying because it helps us to engage parts of the brain that are not always used during our daily life. Not everyone can solve problems in everyday life and work.
Sudoku puzzles allow our brains to be fulfilled, often while relieving stress from our daily work and worries. Or if you are as a creative worker (where you have to use the right hemisphere of the brain), Sudoku will include the opposite hemisphere. Your mind will remain sharp and develop equilaterally.
You can play anywhere
Online Sudoku does not take up much space and is easy to carry, whether it's a puzzle book you fill out with a pencil or a mobile app on your phone. You can fill in jigsaw puzzles almost anywhere - on the train or on the bus, waiting for a meeting or while being with your children in the park. Sudoku is the perfect way to fill empty time with something intellectually stimulating. Just don't get caught playing Sudoku sitting in a business meeting or on a jury. In 2008, a jury in Australia was reprimanded by a judge for playing Sudoku during a trial. Instead of playing, they had to watch closely the trial (which was interrupted as a result of the jury's neglect).
Sudoku is a fun and addictive game, but don't let it harm your life!
Web Sudoku is a great puzzle game. You can play it as much as you want, at any time convenient for you. You can spend from a few minutes to several hours solving Sudoku puzzles. In one sitting, you can solve several simple puzzles at once or linger on one more difficult puzzle. After the break, return to the game board and with a fresh eye to identify new possibilities for placing numbers.
You can choose easy or difficult difficulty level
Sudoku puzzles are available in various difficulty levels, so you can gradually level up to test your problem solving skills. Or, if you just want to quickly solve a simple puzzle, you can choose the easier difficulty level.
It is likely that Sudoku will be a very popular puzzle game for years to come because it brings a sense of satisfaction to the challenge. Sudoku players love the thrill of developing their skill in logic problem solving and the sense of order that comes from completing a puzzle.
There are even WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in Sudoku. The variety of logical solutions is an important factor. Speed is also important.
Participants in the World Sudoku Championship solve many puzzles with different difficulty levels - easy, medium and hard. Each puzzle has a time limit. Participants are assessed based on how quickly they can complete the next task. The winner is the one who solves the next puzzle faster than others.
Competition conditions may vary
When American Sudoku master Thomas Snyder won the first US national Sudoku championship in 2007, he completed a series of three puzzles (easy, medium and hard) in 9 minutes, 59 seconds. This is over 8 minutes faster than anyone else has done. In the final round, Snyder and two other finalists solved Sudoku puzzles on large playing fields measuring 4 x 4 feet. Thus, 1000 spectators could clearly see all the numbers as they were placed on the playing field. This was an unusual challenge for players. Usually, when solving puzzles, players are dealing with a small Sudoku grid located on a piece of paper, in a mobile application or on a monitor screen.
