Expertise In Sudoku Game!
Known as the most gracious civilization, the Japanese have also given to the world the intense mind-game of Sudoku, which has became something of a national craze for Americans now!
The game of Sudoku may have originated and perfected in Japan, but it has truly become global with the growing popularity of the simple to difficult levels of puzzle solving it offers players of any age, gender and IQ. Though it involves playing and arranging numerals in a unique order, it does not require any specific mathematical skills like addition or subtraction, which many non-players are not aware of. Sudoku is then, a mind-game that calls for logical thinking, reasoning and patience besides sharpening the mental faculties upon being played regularly.
Man in ancient times too had different forms of entertainment much like his modern counterpart and this is why the thrill of Sudoku has encompassed different generations and geographical regions since it affords a simple play with numerals. Of course, being in the age of computerization, there is not much guessing to it that modern technology has also affected the game of Sudoku, because it has done so tremendously. There are different types of gadgets and even websites dedicated to the history, development and variations to Sudoku, including Monster Sudoku (a 5-in-1 game) for its fans.
A real mind-twisting adventure is promised to the players of Sudoku, who get to form new ideas through the various possibilities of the number game where placement of pre-entered numbers and the remaining numerals 1-9 determine the end of the set. All the numbers to be entered by the player have to be judged based on the pre-entered numbers – the more the pre-entered numbers, the tougher the game as a rule; the game of Sudoku thus, is all about logic based placement.
The history of Sudoku in the United States dates back to 1979 where it slowly gained popularity. Roughly translated, Sudoku in English would mean a game where ‘the digits remain single.’ There are different ways of pronouncing the game’s name, but whatever these are, it is a given fact that the game’s popularity has nothing to do with this – nor the rules. An arithmetic relationship between numbers needs to be established through critical thinking by the players of Sudoku puzzles and this can only be done with time and patience since these numbers are not related to each other.
When Howard Garns was a septuagenarian, he designed the Sudoku puzzle, but anonymously. Garns was a retired architect and a famed freelance puzzle constructor who had learned a few tricks of creating a puzzle professionally to please his own self, then shared it with others. His inspiration was the Latin square of Euler, which required him to do some more alteration, which he named ‘Third Dimension.’ Players were given half-completed grids that they were required to solve. He gave it to a US publication that also revived interest in the game’s motherland, Japan soon enough when a person named Nikoli took to it.
Soon, the newspapers of both countries printed the game to be played manually and only in 1989 was the computerized version of Sudoku made public to users, courtesy Loadstar Publishing. Apple Macintosh followed suit and 2005 saw the game reach its peak popularity even as it shot past the fan-list of Rubik’s cube solvers, which was popular in the 80’s.
