Yes, it is true. I have found a new addiction. It is called Sudoku. If you aren't familiar with Sudoku consider yourself lucky. Sudoku is a (new?) type of puzzle that uses numbers. Digits 1 through 9 in a row, column and box. It can be infuriating and, I guarantee, very addictive. Once you try it look out. You will find yourself going nuts trying to figure it out. Once you get the hang of them it is even worse. Then you find yourself carrying the puzzle around in your pocket - stealing moments of free time to work on it.
We have gotten started working on them at the store. (Can you tell business has been slow lately?) When you solve one you find yourself running off to your co-worker to show him your prize.
If you haven't tried them yet, or just want more puzzles to feed your addiction I have placed a link to Web Sudoku in my links section. But be duly warned - this activity is very addictive. You may find it will even cut into your poker playing time.
