Oddly formulated

1 out of 5 stars
EM - 3 years ago
I enjoy sudoku regularly. With most books, I’ve finished “1-star” (easy) puzzles within a few minutes, generally not had trouble with 2- and 3-star, and gotten through 4-star puzzles about half the time or so. In this book, the “light and easy” are not so simply because it’s pretty easy to get to a point where it’s known that numerous boxes or rows need only two numbers, so we know which two (or sometimes three) numbers those are, but there is no logical way to know which is needed. I realize this is how the game works to some degree, but having now done two of the “light and easy” puzzles and encountered the same issue in which a “logical logjam,” if you will, simply occurs in that multiple adjoining rows or boxes need the same two numbers but no way to eliminate one or the other in any of the avenues is available. Perhaps the author expects solvers to guess, but I don’t guess in sudoku—I only enter a number when it is logically the only number that can be entered in a box. So perhaps I am missing something, but given my history wish sudoku and my experience with this book so far, it seems like the puzzles are formulated so that there is not always a logical way to solve them (even the easy ones).
