Confessions of a reluctant and moderately incompetent addict ...

1,5, 7 ... see?
That blank there must be a three.
But that means that should be a one.
Blast! The one's already gone.
Look, I've got another there -
Can't have both inside one square.
Rub it out and start anew.
What a stupid thing to do!
Oh, this is a total pain.
Don't think I'll do this again.
As if my days aren't filled with strife
I add this torture to my life.
Curse that Japanese guy who
Invented bloody Sudoku.

I'm giving up, I've had enough,
I simply cannot give a stuff
I - oh, hang on a second - wait:
That must be four - oh, yes! - and eight!
And that makes this one also eight.
An utter piece of cake this, mate!
Suddenly it's crystal clear;
I'll beat this bugger, never fear.
The last blank space and that's a four.
Okay ... perhaps I'll try one more ...

*Helga is now on her third book... and always on the lookout for more!* J... what a clever little poem... such talent... what a shame it's being eaten by the Sudoku bug


Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

Oh wowo LOL hahahha, I love that poem!!!! You did an excellent job with that.

And you know, I remembered reading about that game on someone else's blog,...can't remember who now, and I intended on searching for one... can you find them online?

Just one more thing for me to be addicted to! LOL

Jem ... You probably read about it on Helga's blog! You can get them online ... just do a search for "Sudoku" ... if I post a URL, I risk falling foul of the Powers That Be.

Glad you liked my scribblings too

Get a life - why not try blogging? I'm sure that can't be addictive!

Q, Great poem. Wish I wasn't addicted to Sudoku though. It's been driving me bloody mad.

Georgia, Petal ... That's more or less it! It's definitely moved into the realms of a personal battle ... imagine David versus Goliath or World War II and you have some idea!

Stewby ... Why do you think I've cracked up? It's nothing to do with money, relationships, work, all those problems that drive people to the brink; it's bloody Sudoku! And I blame Helga, temptress that she is, for convincing me to start!

Wyvernrose, EE ... My addiction is relatively recent ... it's not even close to burning out yet! Fortunately, I'm finally starting to get to grips with them so maybe there's hope for me yet ... and if I haven't got over them in, oh, two or three years, I can always join Sudoku Anonymous
