    they're really really addictive!!! don't start one, 'cos you won't want to do anything else until you've finished (well, if you're really logical like me anyway...). They're sooo much better than cross words (which are boring...)

    It's basically a nine by nine grid split into nine boxes of three by three.
    In each row are the numbers 1-9, in each column are the numbers 1-9 and in each box are the numbers 1-9. You're given some numbers to start off with, then have to do the rest yourself. They are quite addictive, but I prefer the tsunami (now renamed hanjee) and enigma puzzles, as they involve creating something, i.e. a picture, albeit not usually that good.

    They are addictive...and are so muchy better than crosswords as you don't need any sort ofknowledge to do them unlike crossowrds. Really anyone can o a Su Doku puzzle..the more logically and quickly your mind works the faster you do the puzzles and less likely you are to make mistakes, but really anyone can do them.

    If someone hasn't ever tried one yet, go and find one and do it. Most newsapaers have then in now, so you should easily find one...I find the Time ones the best. They were the original ones in the UK and they have some of the more difficult ones...you can really tell the difference between the 'easy' and 'feindish' ones in the Times, while all levels of difficulty in the Independent are just as easy as each other.

    Your maths teacher sounds great...but he really should have forced you to do them...I'd guessdoing lots of them really would help with your logical thinking...somethign which will help your maths skills
