this is definitely an incredibly addictive game, and perfect for me at the higher levels, and for my students with simpler puzzles (I teach math to 7th graders). There are precious few products that are fun and educational-- this one wins big.

If you enjoy Kakuro, this is very simple and not challenging enough. If you are a Sukoku only player, you would probably enjoy Ken Ken too.
