Japan is a country well known for its advance and high technology in fact it has been able to surpass most of its neighboring countries. This is not surprising since Japan at present is one of the world’s best producers of high-tech equipment and machines. In addition Japan is also well known for creating some of the best pc games and online games. And once again they have proven their ability to create games that will transcend all other games available when they have introduced sudoku to the world.

Sudoku is a number placing game invented and popularized in Japan. It was later launched in the internet and became one of the most popular games in the world today. The concept behind sudoku was taken from another puzzle game which is the crossword puzzle.

The only difference between these two puzzle games is the fact that sudoku makes use of numbers instead of letters. The numbers used ranges from 1 to 9. These numbers are to be placed correctly on the rows and columns that are located on a 3x3 square. The numbers should appear on their correct orders and that is where the challenge sets in. If you are one of those people that love brain teasers then sudoku is the game for you.

I just want to point out that sudoku games although deals with number puzzles but is not considered a math game. For the very simple reason that it does not involved the use of any mathematical formulas or concept, sudoku games calls for lateral thinking and this is also one of the reasons why it has created such a big impact around the globe.

Sudoku games are very simple to play. There are no complicated instructions involved and the best thing about this game is that you can compete with other sudoku players around the world. How? Well all you need is to have a computer, an internet connection and don’t forget to register to a sudoku game provider online.

The registration is entirely for free so it’s all fun and games for you. You will be able to compete with other registered players from every part of the globe. Isn’t that cool or what? Aside from that all the winners on the competition are going to be posted on the leader board of the web site. And before I forget the winner of the sudoku game is chosen based on the speed of solving the puzzle.

There is no age limit in playing sudoku games everybody is welcome to join and enjoy the game. This makes sudoku games ideal for families that want to spend quality time together. Sudoku number placing games are also ideal in exercising the brain. Imagine a game that lets you enjoy and learn at the same time. Although there are also games that can provide you the same benefit but the overall effect on you is different.

Aside from that, most educational games online would usually interest a player for a short period of time but sudoku number puzzles are very different from them since the more a player plays it the more he or she becomes addicted to the game. And unlike any other games that has a certain maximum level to reach (and after reaching it the game is complete or finish) sudoku games are not restricted by levels. This is also the reason why people continuously play this game.

Sudoku games can give you a degree of confidence as well as sense of achievement especially after solving a very hard puzzle. Another important thing to remember about sudoku games is that each number puzzle has a unique solution that can be obtained using logic and without resorting to guessing. Plus you can never cheat on a sudoku puzzle which makes sudoku even more challenging and worthwhile.

Aside from the internet you may also find sudoku games on newspapers, magazines and the likes. You may also download a sudoku game on your mobile phone and on your personal computer. Simply choose the downloader that is suitable for your computer. There are also printable e-books available that you can purchase online.
