Is there a 12-step program for Sudoku?

Hi, I'm Ron and I'm a Sudoko junkie! (your response: Hi Ron!)

A few days ago Renee found a magazine with a couple of Sudoku puzzles in it, and decided to solve one. I asked her about it and she explained the 'simple' rules. (From the Sudoku site: Fill in the grid so that every row, every column & every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9. There's no math involved. The grid has numbers, but nothing has to add up to anything else. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic. It's fun. It's challenging. It's addictive!).

They weren't kidding when they said addictive!  After the demo puzzles were done in the magazine, I had to go to Hastings to get Sudoku books. (Yes, the word book is plural! Having two books is the easiest way to share)

If you like puzzles, try Sudoku, but I warn you ... it is addictive.
