In a previous post I already mentioned Puzzle Japan where I found my favorite Slither Link Puzzle books.
At Puzzle Japan they have much more number puzzles and if may say so the are all Sudoku look-a-likes. One of my favorite puzzle right now is Hitori. The rules are simple: 1.

And the best thing is you can also solve Hitori puzzles [Read More...]

The answer to the Question “How to solve the world largest puzzle” is given on Jibbl.org.
The world’s largest Sudoku puzzle was constructed on a hillside near Chipping Sodbury in the UK, very close to the Bath exit of the M4 motorway. The Sudoku is visible to motorists traveling Eastbound towards London.
The size of the puzzle measures almost 85 meter square. The solutions to this Sudoku and a larger picture of the Sudoku can be found at Jibbl.org.
Next to the regular Sudoku and the Samurai Sudoku, which has 5 Sudoku joined in a quincunx arrangement, there are much more Sudoku variants available on the web.
Although Sudoku’s are never boring, sometimes it is nice to solve different Sudoku variants.
The first website I found showing you Sudoku variants is called Age of Puzzles which shows you five variants of Sudoku.
Math Games shows you a dozen of Sudoku variants. Just find the Sudoku variant you like and start creating the Sudoku variants puzzles you love most. Happy Puzzling!
