Number place

Published July 16, 2005

According to the introduction of the book that came free with The Times, Number Place is the rough translation of Sudoku.

In case you live under a bridge and don’t know what this is, it’s a square number puzzle involving placing the numbers from 1 to 9 in the correct places.

You know that I’m not one for faddy trends that come and go, and I try and stay away from things if the the rest of the country is going mad for it (Harry Potter? Pah, I’ll wait for the paperback). But Mr C brought this book home and settled down to do it, and I had pretty soon hijacked the pencil and was calculating late into the night. I recommend it, although the puzzles I’m working on now are supposed to be just mild ones and I’m already stuck.
