History of sudoku (my fav game)




Sudoku has a fascinating history. "Su" means number in Japanese, and "Doku" refers to the single place on the puzzle board that each number can fit into. It also connotes someone who is single—indeed, one way to describe the game is "Solitaire with numbers." Sometimes it is mis-spelled as "soduko" or "sudoko." Although its name is Japanese, its origins are actually European and American, and the game represents the best in cross-cultural fertilization. Unlike many games which spring from one culture and are then absorbed by others, Sudoku's development reveals it to be a true hybrid creation.

The 18th century Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler apparently developed the concept of "Latin Squares" where numbers in a grid appear only once, across and up and down. In the late 1970's, Dell Magazines in the US began publishing what we now call Sudoku puzzles using Euler's concept with a 9 by 9 square grid. They called it Number Place, and it was developed by an independent puzzle maker, Howard Garnes.

In the mid-1980s, the president of the Japanese puzzle giant Nikoli, Inc., Mr. Maki Kaji, urged the company to publish a version of the puzzle that became a huge hit in that country. Nikoli gave the game its current name, and helped refine it by restricting the number of revealed or given numbers to 30 and having them appear symmetrically. Afterwards the game became increasingly popular in Japan and started becoming a fixture in daily newspapers and magazines. Yet almost two decades passed before the game was taken up by The Times newspaper in London as a daily puzzle. This development was due to the efforts of Wayne Gould. He first came across a Sudoku puzzle in a Japanese bookshop in 1997, and later spent many years developing a computer program to generate them. In the fall of 2004, he was able to convince The Times to start publishing daily Sudoku puzzles developed using his software. The first game was published on November 12, 2004. Within a few months, other British newspapers began publishing their own Sudoku puzzles.

Once again, Sudoku's popularity crossed the oceans. By the summer of 2005, major newspapers in the US were also offering Sudoku puzzles like they would daily crossword puzzles. It is interesting to note that while software is critical to being able to supply the growing demand for Sudoku puzzles—it can take hours of processing time to generate one unique puzzle—it was old media in the form of newspapers that have done so much to spread Sudoku around the world.

Sudoku's future development is unknown. While the 9 by 9 grid is the most common form of Sudoku, there are many variants of the game. Four by four (4 x 4) Sudoku with 2 by 2 subsections are simpler, fun for younger audiences, and easy to deliver to mobile devices like cellphones (this site offers a 4 by 4 variant). There are 5 by 5 games, 6 by 6 and 7 by 7 games. For the truly addicted, there are even 16 by 16 grids, not to mention a 25 by 25 grid apparently offered by Japanese game developer Nikoli. Sudoku puzzles using letters and symbols, some even spelling words in their final solutions are also becoming available. Other variants require computational skills.

Where this rapidly developing fad leads to, no one can tell. What is clear though is that Sudoku is a fun and challenging way for people of any age and culture to hone their logical and deductive abilities. Who knows—played often enough, Sudoku may help make the human race a tiny bit smarter.

Moodswing

2 papers are done and 2 more two go!!

Perasaan exam kali ni lain..weekend sblm start exam tu,mood sy sgt x baik..tension giler duk rmh..nasib baik abah and d sista phm..mungkin sy tension sbb x dpt perhatian dr mak waktu2 nk exam ni..When its come to something hard and nerve-wrecking like this,i need my mother!!!no matter,how old i am,i still a small kids that need her mother for comfort..tp my mum kna bg perhatian pd org lain gak a.k.a 'batu'..so i didn't get her full attention..u might say i'm jelous with that person and YES,I AM JEALOUS!!I don't care if people said i being immature and unreasonable..tp 'batu' tu pun baya i,klau bdk kecik tu x pe la..

Nasib abah ade,dia yg cool kn i..he knows what i feels and he undersatnd why..sy sgt marah bila ade org yg x phm2 bhasa & blh wat pekak badak mcm dia tu statue..bila kesabaran dh ilang,plus tension dgn exam,cpt je la nk bursting..sy wat x tau  je ngan si 'batu' ni & try to avoid her la,klau x kn x psl2 dia kna maki hamun..

Tp lps tu sy rse guilty lak ngan my mum sbb termarah dia..my mum slalu sgt back up 'batu',dan membuatkn org tu naik kepala..sy jd geram ngan my mum psl ni,smpai dia pun skali kna marah..i think my mum x patut jd baik sgt smpai mcm tu..family i yg lain pun rase bnda yg same mcm i..it's just not good!!

Walau kpala otak sy tgh serabut, nasib baik blh jwb exam tu (wlaupun pun x bgs sgt,tp at least better than midsem)..Exam jauh lg pnting dr perasaan marah sy pd 'batu',jd sy tolak tepi sume tu utk xm..lps ni,blh smbung marah blk ngan 'batu'..haha..Bila tension exam dh kurang,mood sy pun ok sikit,perassan marah pd 'batu'pun dh kurang,so dh x blh nk smbung marah kt dia kecuali dia wat perangai blk, & kali ni mmg sy akn mengamuk yg amat sgt..

Bila pkir blk,bnda hnya mslh kecik je dan ade kebaikn dia..in the future,i will  meet a different types of people,a weirdo,a phscyo,an arrogant bastard,just name it(i nk jd doc,mesti la akn jmp mcm2 org)..and that people might be worsed than her..so, i take it as a lesson how to handle this kind of people who are 'kepala batu';klau hentak kpala dia kt batu,batu yg pecah,bkn kepala dia(hyperbola lak simile ni)..tp waktu marah ari tu,x de pkir bnda ni sume sbb fikiran tgh x rasional & perassan marah tgh tebal..huhu..

Dh ckup psl citer psl tu,skang sy kna btul2 focus & struggle utk Cm & biostat..sy sgt takutt ngan biostat sbb sy x suka math,math sgt memeningkn!!sy kna wat btul2 paper biostat wlaupun x suka supaya x kna repeat paper tu..Chaiyok,chaiyok!!!!
