Sudoku – Inspiration for Solving Mind Games

Jan 13th 2015 at 10:20 PM

Sudoku and the knight tour game are two of the most popular, fun and yet captivating game types. They are mind games that keep the brain challenged and stimulated. Sudoku is based on numbers and grids. Many people feel they are stuck after a while when they try to find solutions. Filling the grid can make the eyes sore when you stare for too long.

Solving puzzles can help when people need a break. They are productive when these kind of breaks are taken frequently. Worrying to much will only delay in finding the solution. Concentration is similar to how our body works physically. A rest is important after continuous exertion. Concentration fails more often when a subject tries to concentrate harder. Even Sudoku experts need break to refocus on required concentration.

Muscles are stagnant when a person is seats in one place for more than one hour. Blood flow will increase when the person walks around for a bit. Exercising is needed as much for the body as for the brain. It can boost energy and improve the efficiency of the person’s concentration. Physical exercise can improve mental agility and memory which will in turn increase the productivity of the person.

Grids can often confine the mind of the person. Some other paper pencil games can be used as a distraction to divert the mind of a Sudoku expert. A mentally tired person may not be able to solve the challenging puzzle. Work which involves hands can also serve as a distraction to the mind that has been working hard.

There are many kinds of Sudoku puzzles that are available with different levels of difficulty. Sudoku puzzles can be solved by following simple steps.

  • Counting Principles – The same number should not be repeated in a row or in a column. Placing the numbers carefully without repetition can help forming the framework of the puzzle.
  • Definite – Using the rule of elimination, the numbers that can be present definitely in one block should be identified. Starting from 1, the numbers are checked where it can be placed with respect to the row, column and grid.
  • Number – Go through each and every number to fill in the grid. Revisit the numbers from 1 to 9 again to see if there is a possibility to find definite numbers in the grid.
  • Easy – Start with easy level of puzzles and move up to a more difficult level.
