The Big Book of Visual Sudoku: 273 Puzzles That Reinvent the World's Most Popular Number Game


The Big Book of Visual Sudoku: 273 Puzzles That Reinvent the World's Most Popular Number Game Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pure wow—announcing a dazzling new idea in Sudoku! The Big Book of Visual Sudoku reinvents the world most popular number game by adding a second visual “layer" on top of the traditional number/logic puzzle—using symbols and pictures instead of numbers.

Its a paradigm shift, 273 puzzles that present Sudoku for both sides of the brain, left (the logical) and right (the visual). The puzzles are oversized, colorful, graphically arresting— eye-candy—but also challenging. The underlying puzzles are handcrafted by an expert; unlike computer-generated Sudoku, these puzzles draw in the user with symmetry, elegance, and surprise and give the effect and deep satisfaction of matching wits with a master.

But then comes the twist: Instead of traditional numbers, the boxes are filled by: clock faces, with the hands pointing from one oclock to nine oclock; dominoes, with dots to fill in; box score graphics from a baseball game (players one through nine, of course); plus Roman numerals, playing cards, human hands signing numbers, Japanese characters, and more.

The puzzles have to be translated, from number to symbol, for a smart and stunning visual challenge. The puzzles are rated Easy to Hard, and solutions are printed in the back.
