Sudoku, a puzzle with numbers, has gained popularity all over the world. You can collect puzzles at home, on a trip, in the office, at work, on public transportation, in a boring lecture. The process of finding the right number to be inscribed vertically or horizontally is addictive. Sudoku becomes a great way to spend time in the fall evening and "stretch your brain", distract yourself from the routine. Why do players love puzzles so much?
Brain boosting and logic development
Sudoku is a game that suits both humanities and techies. The puzzle makes the left hemisphere of the brain work. Finding a solution and the right number turns into an intellectual adventure.
Sudoku is suitable for creative workers who have the right hemisphere of the brain engaged. A puzzle is a way to activate the left and "switch."
Puzzles don't just pump the brain and develop logic. Puzzles help you switch, relieve stress and fatigue.
Play anywhere and under any circumstances
Solve Sudoku can be solved not only in magazines or newspapers. Today there are mobile applications that are installed on a smartphone or tablet (iOS, Android). This means that you can play Sudoku online anywhere: at home, at school, on a trip, at work, on a business trip, on vacation, on a trip.
Solving puzzles becomes a great way to "kill time" in a queue or on a long ride on public transportation.
Just be careful not to get "burned". For example, in 2008, a jury in Australia was reprimanded by a judge for solving Sudoku instead of watching the witnesses, the defendant, and the lawyer.
It takes minutes to solve a puzzle (depending on the difficulty and level of knowledge). The player himself decides how much time he is going to spend on entertainment: 5 minutes at dinner, half an hour in the chair in front of the TV, and so on. At one sitting you can solve 3-4 puzzles at once. But you can also "linger" on a difficult task. If it seems that the puzzles do not add up, it is worth interrupting. Perhaps after a little rest you will be able to return to the playing field with renewed vigor and "collect combinations".
Level of difficulty for beginners, intermediates and pros
Sudoku are puzzles that differ in levels of difficulty. The more numbers revealed on the field, the easier it is to play. For example, beginners are offered Sudoku where they have already filled 7 cells out of 9 in each square. Calculating which two numbers are missing is much easier than looking for the missing 5 or 6 values. As you grow professionally, you can make the levels more difficult: move to medium or high levels of difficulty. If you want to distract yourself after a hard day's work, you can "roll back" to a simple level of the game.
If earlier for entertainment it was necessary to buy newspapers, magazines, booklets, today it is enough to download and install a mobile application on Android or iOS. There are different techniques on how to solve sudoku puzzles. Tactics are used not only in world championships, but also in everyday problem solving.
Most likely, the players' love for searching for numbers and solving Sudoku will not disappear. Solving a complex problem, which made the brain "stretch", is accompanied by an adrenaline rush. The mood rises, confidence appears, the player feels a surge of strength. It is worth opening Sudoku for the sake of these emotions.
