There’s something new on the sudoku scene--and it’s bound to capture the attention of word lovers. Wordoku follows the same basic principles as sudoku, except that solvers fill the grid with nine letters. Under each grid, the letters for that puzzle appear, in a pronounceable anagram. Then, just like the original, you have to arrange them so that every letter appears in every column, every row, and every 3x3 box just one time: anyone, including non-English speakers, can do that.  But unlike sudoku, the fun doesn’t end there: buried inside the grid, you’ll also find the answer to the anagram. (In some cases, to make it tougher, the anagram actually has TWO possible solutions.) It’s brainbusting, entertaining, and irresistible.
