Review:
Anyone who has written and erased numbers time and time again while trying to complete a Sudoku puzzle will be immediately drawn to this game. It is played with two-sided numbered tiles on an easy-to-read, eight-inch-square playing surface, which, unfortunately, lacks demarcation of the 3 x 3 boxes. Place tiles with the red number side up, following the layout shown on the printed Sudoku puzzle. Place tiles with the black number side up where you think they should go as you solve the puzzle. Discover a mistake? Simply replace the wrong tile with the correct one. An accompanying Puzzles and Solutions booklet includes 100 puzzles in five gradations from Very Easy to Very Hard. It includes the rules for solving Sudoku puzzles, but does not give any guidance on strategies.
