The Su Doku publishing craze

This craze is truly underway now, with Amazon currently listing twenty titles, including a board game, the Guardian book of hand-compiled puzzles, the Independent book of Super Sudokus, and even a guide to completing the puzzles by Carol Vorderman (or, if you prefer, Sudoku for Dummies).

It’s been clear for a long time that this is a major craze – even my original post on the subject has topped the charts for most popular post, but has consistently been leagues ahead of every other post each month. But this level is, as any idiot can see, unsustainable. And, frankly, I’ll be glad when the craze has finished and I can just do the (single) daily Sudoku puzzle in peace, without having to have it taking over every media outlet. But if you are truly obessed, then make sure you’re tuned in to Sky One on Friday 1st July, for Carol Vorderman’s Sudoku Live. I only wish I was joking.

If you buy your Sudoku supplies through the Amazon links on this site, you’ll be helping to keep the site going – you can check out the very latest titles and their prices here
