Crosswordokuby Patrick Blindauer, Frank Longo
Sudoku lovers and crossword fans: unite! This collection is sure to fascinate—and challenge—both groups. It’s the greatest combination ever of wordplay and logic, the ultimate in left-brain, right-brain puzzle solving. The tricky fun begins with a crossword that features some special shaded squares. Complete it as usual, and transfer the letters in those squares to the wordoku grid. Then, solve that puzzle, and figure out the hidden word, using standard sudoku reasoning. Two sets of nine blanks, for the letters used in the wordoku, provide solvers with a little extra help: first, place the letters in alphabetical order—for example, AEMNORSTY. Then rework them to create a memorable phrase on the second group of blanks: in this case OYSTERMAN. The hidden word? It’s MONASTERY!

I enjoy doing crossword puzzles and sudoku as well, and I found this book to be a nice combination of the two. It was really a fun concept! Make no mistake, though, it was a challenge. But who doesn't enjoy a challenge?! Check it out!!
One of the most innovative and original ideas to come along in years. Each crossword has some shaded squares which become the starting squares for a sudoku puzzle, and there's even a hidden word at the end. I had so much fun solving this book; where's the sequel?!? If you like both wordplay and logic in your puzzles, this is a great book.
I will stay with separate crosswords and sudokus.
