Literally translated, Sudoku means "numerals limited to a single person."
Sudoku is a game of logic, based on a grid of 9 columns and 9 rows. This is
sub-divided into nine 3 x 3 squares. A completed Sudoku puzzle comprises
this grid completely filled with the numbers 1 - 9 appearing exactly once in
each row, column and square.
According to the Sudoku website www.saidwhat.co.uk, the history of the game
is hard to pinpoint. Some accounts have traced its origins to "Magic
Square," which has been around for centuries. The current version of Sudoku,
however, is a very recent phenomenon which first appeared in a Japanese
magazine entitled Nikoli. Regardless of its history, Sudoku is enjoying
great popularity among people of all ages.
