Su Doku

Hmmm, it doesn't look good, I'm afraid. I've discovered Su Doku. And just at the wrong time. I'd just reached the point where Minesweeper no longer presented a challenge, then I discover this new puzzle quite by accident in a discarded newspaper.
Have a look at some examples at to see what I'm talking about.
The crossword was boring me (not because I could do it, but because I couldn't) and my eye fell on this. I'm not usually a fan of numbers games (I like them, but I tend to enjoy the wordy stuff more). I'm afraid I might be hooked.
I have since discovered that certain people I know are also hooked. It's like a secret code-loving brotherhood. We wink at each other in the street. Or is it just that our eyes are shrivelled from hours of staring at small numbered boxes?
I like to think that Su Doku marks me out as someone who should be working for the Secret Services. Except the early mornings would count me out. That's why I write about them instead.
