5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down
Beautifully crafted puzzles that are graded and ordered by the amount of time you're expected to solve them in - from a few minutes right up to 90! I like the way they seem to be ordered so that each puzzle brings something new to the previous one.

All you'll need for this is some Su Doku skills, some really basic maths (subtracting from 45 is a good start), a...

1.0 out of 5 stars regrettable buy
Quality of this book takes away all the pleasure from relaxing with such puzzles.
The fact that the book will just not want to keep open where you want it to, did it for me - will not buy these again.

This review is from: The Times Killer Su Doku (Paperback)
Beautifully crafted puzzles that are graded and ordered by the amount of time you're expected to solve them in - from a few minutes right up to 90! I like the way they seem to be ordered so that each puzzle brings something new to the previous one.

All you'll need for this is some Su Doku skills, some really basic maths (subtracting from 45 is a good start), a pen, your thinking head and plenty of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars More addictive than Sudoku, 9 April 2006
By 
R. J. Hole (England) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The Times Killer Su Doku (Paperback)
Killer SuDoku is so much more entertaining than SuDoku. The grid is the familiar 9x9 but most grids have no starting numbers. The only clues are the groups of squares with the total in the top left. If you have ever played SuDoku and Kakuro then you will find it easy to get started. Unlike ordinary SuDoku it can require some arithmetic. Each puzzle has a time it should take which range from 7 minutes to 90 minutes. You can always skip some of the "Gentle" and "Moderate" puzzles if you find them too easy, or save them for when you are feeling brain-dead. I'm not sure I every want to go back to ordinary SuDoku again!

The Times puzzles are well constructed and it seems like they have been designed with a particular route to the answer in mind. There are not many Killer Su Doku books around at the moment but this is probably the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Puzzle Book, 11 Feb 2006
This review is from: The Times Killer Su Doku (Paperback)
A very interesting new variation on the 'Sudoku' puzzle type, which is certain to become more and more popular. It's a combination, really, of both Sudoku and Kakuro - a combination which enables the composer and solver to set and solve puzzles using techniques familiar to the foundation puzzle types and also ideas unique to 'killers' such as 'nonet counting'.
These are hand compiled (and often symmetrical) puzzles by Japaneze puzzle experts and, with over 100 puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty, this book should give many, many hours of puzzling entertainment. Many more so than the publishers themselves estimate as I find the target times totally unobtainable!
Thoroughly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners, 2 Nov 2008
This review is from: The Times Killer Su Doku (Paperback)
This is a great puzzle, but is very light on the more difficult versions of killer. There are only 5 'deadly' killers (52 min and over), and these were not of that high a standard compared to the ones that I have seen in the times...

This review is from: The Times Killer Su Doku (Paperback)
Absolutely brilliant. First section gets you used to doing Killer Su Doku if your are not familiar with. Have found it even more addictive than 'ordinary' Su Doku. Am even looking forward to long haul flight in next few days as an excuse for doing nothing else!

5.0 out of 5 stars addictive but watch out for no. 91, 24 Mar 2008
This review is from: The Times Killer Su Doku (Paperback)
If you like Su Doku you will like this book. But watch out for puzzle 91 as it has an error in it. 26 in the bottom right centre cannot be 989 as is provide by the solution.

Killer So Doku is both different, better and more of a challenge than the ordinary puzzle and my wife is addicted so when a new book comes out, I always buy it for her and she is always happy.
