Sudoku of the Day


Have you taken a look at our new book shop, which includes a range of books about sudoku as well as other logic puzzles.

We have also just reduced the prices of our Easy and Medium level E-Books.


If you would like to keep track of how well you are doing at Sudoku simply register with us. It's completely free to register and every time you complete a puzzle whilst logged in, the system records your time. On the statistics page you can then see your own statistics as well as the averages of everyone that has signed up. Inside the next few days we are also planning on including "Top Ten" lists, showing the fastest players at each level. If you can't see the timer counting up to the right of the "Print" button, check that you have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Using the "Check" button as a means of storing the current state, so that you can make changes to the puzzle confident that you can use the back button to take you back to the saved state, is a perfectly legitimate way of solving the puzzles and can be compared to using a pencil and a rubber on paper. However, using the "Check" button to see if you've guessed an answer correctly, is not. For this reason, if you guess incorrectly, your time for that puzzle will not be recorded.

If you're being annoyed when adding notes to your puzzle by your browser suggesting values for you, take a look under Tools/Options. Go to the tab Privacy/Saved Forms and disable "Save information I enter in forms and the Search Bar". We are still looking for a method to disable this just when you're on the Sudoku site but until then maybe this fix will help you.

Now the BBC is getting in on the act, with a show that's a mixture of Sudoku and a general knowledge quiz. It's called SUDO-Q.

Origins of Sudoku

Now you've played sudoku of the day online, aren't you intrigued as to how this highly addictive puzzle came about. Like many people, I assumed that sudoku was Japanese, only to discover it was printed in a US magazine well before it reached Japan. More recently I read an article in a German newspaper that said that sudoku was invented by a Swiss mathematician, "Leonhard Euler" and is actually a subset of "Latin Squares". Enough was enough, now I really had to hunt for a more complete description of sudoku history and I believe I've found it in The History of Sudoku.
