I love crosswrod puzzles and other puzzle games but not sudoku, or whatever and however it's spelled. Stupid waste of time. I also hate looking for words and crossing them out--- Idiot passtime.

Yes I LOVE a good crosswrod puzzle myself!

LOL! I'm not really a crossword fan. I prefer word searches. I found my name once hehe.

*Update* I'm a bit stuck. Right now, I'm in the middle of battling a human/Nephilim/mutant thingy (it's complicated!) and I have no gun ammo whatsoever so I can't continue onto the next level. I've asked for some help over at the fansite, and it looks like someone might be able to help with my dilemma. I'm not getting my hopes up though.

Omigod Kazzzz - I do at LEAST one Sudoku each day. I'm addicted!!

It isn't really Maths as such as far as I'm concerned - and I did History of Maths as part of my degree. Or History of MATH for our American friends!! :)

I mean, all you have to do is make sure that each line/box (and in some cases horizontal) contains only one of how ever many numbers there are in that puzzle, eg 6. Not too keen on the picture types as it takes so long to draw each symbol, but I love numerical Sudoku.

KAZZZZ!!!!!!! STOP SNORING!! *pokes Kazzzz with a pointy stick*.

Am I boring you perchance?

:)

Nice to see we are so alike Johnny - at least in our taste in crosswords!! ;)

Oh and what I like doing also are the sort of puzzles (not sure what they are called) where the grid is empty apart from one word, and each letter is numbered. You may already have 1, 16, 9, 10 and 25 for example. When you put those letters in all the squares with the same numbers, you can eventually puzzle out the whole alphabet. The whole thing is made easier if you have the letter 'E' or you can guess it early on (as it is the most used letter in English. Not the word 'English' which it obvously isn't (d'oh!!) but in our language).

Anyone else?

:)

Yeah, those 'word searches'. That's what I meant. I think those are idiotic. Don't use a bit of brain power, just a matter of time. DAH.

Ouch Anne put that stick DOWN!!!

I buy one magazine a year, the Christmas edition of the Women's Weekly, full of scrummy Christmassy things and a big puzzle section, which I shall sit down with tonight when Ava's in bed, with a glass of wine.
Can't wait :)

Since I haven't said anything in a little while, I thought I should update. Well, I mentioned I was in a dilemma but I chose to restart the whole game. This time, I made sure all the health packs and ammo and got past the bit I was stuck at. I'm now on the next level, which means there are only two levels before the game finishes. I'm so excited! I'm off to play again after dinner.


One more thing: Joss Ackland officially pwns!!!
