Sudoku and the competition between which is the best

By on July 15, 2017

A game that was once also known as Number Place has been on the horizon from the 19th century. This has been a game that has boggled the minds of so many people and has been really successful in keeping people engrossed not for a few seconds or minutes but for hours together. Nobody could actually understand what was so unique about a 9×9 grid with 3×3 subgrids comprising this grid which was thrown at people in a partially completed manner by the grid setter. The Sudoku since the early days has been in a habit of appearing in newspapers and in many languages around the world. This game again, thanks to technology and the efforts of Mr. Wayne Gould was converted into a computer program so as to produce unique combination puzzles at a pretty rapid pace. This led to many variants of the Sudoku coming up in due course of time, and with technology Sudoku also started to be available online, in the app version as well as on a mobile as well.

The popular variants of Sudoku in the online world

The initial Sudoku that was available has, in due course of time undergone a lot of changes. Today there are a number of variations available in the traditional Sudoku such as different grids and subgrids, addition of new challenges such as limiting of number placements has further gained popularity. This popularity can be attributed to popular websites such as unblockedroom  not only for popularizing the existing versions but also being the catalyst for newer versions like the alphabetical Sudoku, the Kaodoku etc. gaining popularity. The way things stand, when comparing as to which is the best Sudoku, playing Sudoku in a single player mode has more popularity amongst the other modes available, the primary reason being that this suits more for people who are beginners, or on the shy side of life, or to simply put it, like to play Sudoku to relieve stress and/or kill time. The number of players participating in competitive Sudoku pales when taken into consideration the number available for individual players, this could largely be attributed to the fact that individuals would not prefer the “pressure” atmosphere that is present when participating in the competitive mode, something that is not applicable when playing as an individual. All said and done, Sudoku is something that never ceases to amaze everyone, and still continues to grow in popularity more as a “Game”, instead of which mode or variation it is being played in. So, what are you still waiting for? Start playing Sudoku and the other games today to find out which is the best.
