Several years ago, I received a battery operated Sudoku game as a Christmas gift from a relative. I had never heard of Sudoku before, so as soon as I opened my gift, it was time for an impromptu lesson on how to solve a Sudoku puzzle. I was hooked! I now have a Sudoku app on my phone that I use whenever I want to kill some time. Sudoku is a great game for a couple of different reasons:
- The biggest and most obvious reason is that it is good brain stimulation, especially if your playing a more complex version with only a few numbers filled in.
- Second, solving a puzzle like Sudoku can relieve stress. When your mind is on something you enjoy, you are in a better, more relaxed mood.
