I thought this was going to be about marshmallow rice krispy treats laced with LSD. Very disappointing.

Here I thought you were going to tell me that Sudoku was discovered in the 1950's by a Turkish operative, who was then imprisoned, spent years digging a network of tunnels to escape, and defected to Japan.

I just recently discovered Sodoku, and it has been a major time suck. Apparently this is going to get worse before it gets better. Thanks for the link.

Ah right. Ed Pegg Jr's previous column was on the origins of Sudoku

Ed Pegg Jr. recently took over this column and I recommend it highly as a column-to-watch for those, like me, interested in mathematical games.

I went to an MAA conference last year, and one of the keynote speakers chose to talk about magic squares. Her talk was great.

I have a hard time getting interested in them though.

Stop talking about Sudoku! Besides the squares and the numbers, this is totally different. Ooh, ooh, this reminds me of hopscotch!
