I like playing Sudoku here at Lottery Post.

I haven't won a game yet, though.

As I start a new game, I can find several plays, but as my game progresses. It appears to become a guessing game pretty much.

Is that the nature of the game. You just have to make the right guess, or can each number for a blank square be figured out without a doubt?

    Hey, I just finished Beginner in 27:16

    I guess there is enough info to keep the game going without having to guess at it.

      It's not a guessing game.  At the difficult level it will require you at some point to be able to get certain numbers based upon the contents of OTHER cells.  Once you figure out other cells, you learn what can and cannot possibly be in the cell(s) you're trying to solve.

      The difficult level here is somewhat difficult, but there are even harder puzzles available out there.  I tend to find the ultra-challenging ones not too fun, because there's a point that the fun of solving a puzzle can become too frustrating.

      I would say all the levels through medium (here at Lottery Post) are solveable without getting crazy, and difficult is just hard enough, once you get good.  Beginner level should be solvable within 20-30 minutes once you're comfortable.

        I just tried the difficult level just to see how far I could get, and I was able to get a few digits, but I'll stick with beginner for now. It seems like I can do that one.

        I think this could get pretty addictive!

          Strategy helps

          try starting off counting the number of each digit that is showing. (ex. 3-1's...4-2's....2-3's......6-5's...etc)

          Try solving the digit with the highest number showing first, then the next highest and so on.
