Does this shit exist anymore? Can't remember the last time I did one of those muthas.
Cannot work it out at all, my brain just can't be bothered, I look at it for about 15 seconds and then go THIS IS SO STUPID and go off and eat some sweets instead.
give me a 'word workout' of the type you get in the sun and I am all over it- code cracked in under a minute and whole thing finished in no more than five mins.
Fact: I was a finalist in the inaugural Times Sudoku Championship. I didn't win, sadly.
Did you win it as well?
Did he complete it in an insanely quick time?
(* knew of - he died a few years ago sadly)
Like, must have been about 8 minutes or something.
I used to be able to do them in about 10-11 minutes - in the final, I cocked up early on - still managed to finish it with a redraft but was too hard to catch up. Think I came about 10th-ish?
But it really does sound like Sudoku!
like suduko or pokemon
Every. Single. Day.
And the Kakuro. And the crossword. And the mini codeword. I revel in how boring I am.
Does that shit still exist?
I watch people doing this every day on the bus, instead of doing it myself.
If they're kids I'll smile at them.
WHY IS IT TAKING YOU SO LONG YOU FUCKING MORON
I don't see the point in beginner and intermediate sudoku. Surely the take-up for new sudoku enthusiasts must be negligible?
you need to be a special kind of dullard to prefer sodoku.
with all of these logic puzzles i find the enjoyment is in working out what the process you have to do rather than applying it - sudoku, nonagram, kakuro, slither link etc etc
once you're just repeating it over and over to try and improve your time i get bored. that's why crosswords are better
nailed the guardian crossword today in about three minutes 😎
quick one obviously
Sudoku is 100% method, 0% intellect. Totally tedious after the first one, which isn't necessarily a bad thing if you're looking for something to numb the mind.
Still very much alive and kicking, bitches!
