2 of the Most Addicting Games: Sudoku and Scrabble
Why I am Addicted to Sudoku and Scrabble
Here is why I am so addicted to Scrabble and Sudoku. You see, I LOVE numbers and I am good with numbers! I guess thats why Im a financial professional.
Letters and words are my other LOVE! Thats why I am an avid reader, I love writing, I learned another language (Spanish) and I am still dabbling with a third language (French).
I also hate having to wait, so after years of waiting in lines (queues), waiting for friends and family, waiting for meetings to start and more waiting, I discovered Sudoku and now waiting is no problem because I always carry around my Sudoku in order to pass the time. As my waiting companion Sudoku is my Number 2 Favourite Game.
My Number 1 Favorite Game is SCRABBLE! Thats right! My first Scrabble Board is actually my sisters. She introduced me to Scrabble and it seems as though I became addicted to it more than her because when she migrated to England she left me her Scrabble Board.
Then a friend of mine went to the USA on vacation and, knowing how much I LOVE Scrabble, she bought me a new Scrabble board - SUPER SCRABBLE DELUXE EDITION. I was giddy with excitement from her wonderful surprise gift!

My 'KILLER' Sudoku
I never want to run out of Suduko!
So I have a diverse selection of Sudoku books with varying levels of difficulty - easy, simple, mild, medium, hard, difficult, ambitious, tough, fiendish, grand master and the ultimate 'Killer Sudoku". Check out some of my current Sudoku collection in the photo above!
For waiting purposes, I do the 'easy, simple, mild & medium' Sudoku because right then I just want 'mindless' distraction to relieve my boredom and pass the time quickly.
I use the 'hard, ambitious, tough, grand master and "Killer" Sudoku' as brain teasers, to challenge myself and exercise my brain. I call these more challenging Sudoku my mental gym workout! So these are done in my leisure time, in the comfort of my home and with nice listening music in the background.
I also have a Sudoku Board which allows me to place number tiles in the correct spaces instead of having to write. Cool huh? See a picture of my Sudoku Board below.

If you love board games then you'll really love this 'board game' version of Sudoku for individual, family or group fun. I prefer moving tiles to writing numbers. It's addictive fun!
This Sudoku game includes two plastic tray boards, 2 sets of numbers and 1 set of game cards. This is a great alternative to the pencil and paper version of Sudoku and is ideal as a group or family fun activity.
A whiteboard version that you can play by yourself or with up to 4 players, with an added timer feature and markers & erasers, so you can play over and over and over again.
