One of the disadvantages of being the co-chair of Puzzle Day the past two years is that I never get to actually go to any of the workshops (since they had been happening at the same time as the tournament which I was overseeing). We’re fixing that in this February’s event by having the workshops on Saturday and the tournament on Sunday (since I wasn’t the only one disappointed to not be able to be in both places at the same time.) But I got a good glimpse of what I had been missing today when reining World and US Sudoku champion Thomas Snyder returned to our library to give a talk on “The Art of Sudoku” and to sign (and explain) his new book, BATTLESHIP Sudoku. After the talk I have a much greater respect for Sudoku and am starting to get excited for Puzzle Day… and Battleship Sudoku (which I admit I was having trouble visualizing before today) turns out to be super cool.
