My Mamaw Corley and I share something special in common. We LOVE working crossword puzzles. I'm pretty sure she's better at them than I am, but I still love trying to complete them. There's something about the simple complexity that intrigues me... plus the people that make them are just so damn sneaky.
It's been a while since I've really worked a crossword, but I pick one up in the paper every once in a while just to stretch the ol' brain a bit. My love for crosswords hasn't dissapated, I just haven't made the time to play.
But something caught my attention a few weeks ago on USAToday.com. It was an article about a new logic puzzle that's been sweeping the nation, called Sudoku (sue-DOE-koo).
I tried it out that afternoon at USAToday.com's Sudoku page, and now I'm addicted. Go read the rules, give it a shot and see what you think.
Don't say that you can't because you're not good at crosswords... if you can count to nine, you can play.
