Shitedoku: Addictive, Fun, Shite [Paperback]

Book Description

1 Aug 2005
Completely infuriating, yet somehow fun; while being a complete and utter waste of life, a day without Sudoku (pronounced 'sod-oo-koh', or 'su-koh-do', or something like that), leaves devotees feeling empty and incomplete. What few realize, though, is that Sudoku was adapted from the ancient Hungarian game of Shitedoku - a game of letters, not numbers. Each line of a Shitedoku puzzle must contain the letters 'SHITEDOKU', as does each 9-square box - and, just like Sudoku, Shitedoku will tax and infuriate the keenest player. Yet in this original, pure version, the mystical significance of the puzzle - that all such exercises are essentially shite - can once again be revealed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A joke that works 22 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not only does it have a little fun about the mispronunciation of "sudoku", this is a set of genuine puzzles. Some people think that Sudoku requires numerical skill, rather than just logic. This book can dispel the notion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun In Public 1 Jun 2006
By Tom Chase - Published on
The cover says it all really, a parody of the Sodoku game that is filling the world. I for one find it rather grating to play, and feel the masses that play it in their coffee breaks at work, or on the train or even in the car, rather sad.

So I bought this little gem. I can now play the game without getting the grating feeling, as I am spelling out the humorous word SH*TEDOKU, as opposed to numbers 1-9. I can sit with a smile on my face in the train with my pencil, and my big brash yellow cover that reads ''Addictive. Fun. Sh*te.''

Yes, it is silly...and yes, it does give me immature pleasure in public.
