OT- Anyone hooked on Sudoku?
Are any of you doing these puzzles? I just started and am finding them almost as addicting as knitting ( is it possible?) They are really fun and test your logical thinking skills. I'm enjoying it very much.

Anyone else?

I tried it a couple of times. First time I threw it across the room, second time I had more patience but gave up too soon. Knitting wasn't that frustrating to learn! Anyway, it is addictiing to many people. At work, I see a woman who is suppose to be working and she looks like she is in deep thought with her work, only to walk by and find her working on one of those things!

YES.
Holy cow, I cannot express how addicted I've become. It started simply enough, with a puzzle on a different site. (It was last week's Lenny Conundrum on neopets.com if anyone frequents it.) I went to a site or two to learn the basics, and once I'd finished the given puzzle I found myself hankering for more. Web sudoku is now a daily visit. My personal best time for easy is 3 minutes 40 seconds, and I need to start doing the medium and hard ones for more of a challenge.
It's just as bad as knitting, you know. You start one, you finish it, you think "Gee, that was neat" and before you know it you've started another! Sort of like hats, which I find to be similarly quick and gratifying.
...It occurs to me that this may be a problem. I saw the link to web sudoku in the preview and went 'ooo, sudoku!' and did another puzzle.

I can't find the one I got, but Amazon.com lists a bunch of them if you search for "electronic sudoku."

Hmmm-haven't heard of it, thank goodness--I used to be hooked on Pogo!! I can hardly get my knitting done as it is---I cannot have another passion!! My reading list is already suffering, unless you count kntting books. I used to read all the time, now I don't even know what's on the best seller list. :(

You know, that's the exact same thing I thought when I first saw it. That's why I didn't get hooked until just recently. There's absolutely no math involved, though. You just need to be able to count to 9, really... the rest is a placement puzzle.
Have you ever played Tetris and then tried to sleep, only to find your brain playing Tetris whenever you closed your eyes? I've been getting that a bit, but with columns and boxes of numbers. It's crazy.
