There are some pretty nifty things you can win through puzzles and contests. iPods, concert tickets or dvd's...but what about a house? Dave Mackie, a 49 year old Englishman is offering his house (valued roughly at $750,000) as a prize to whoever can solve a Sudoku puzzle.
To participate you'll have to pay 60 bucks, but otherwise there is no catch. Mackie claims he is planning to migrate to Egypt and needed a fun way to get rid of his current home near Blackpool, England. Being addicted to Sudoku's himself, Mackie quickly set up the plan. He is hoping enough people will participate so that he will have a fair amount of money in return for his house, which includes a sauna and hot tub.
"It's a fun way to sell my house and a way to avoid getting sucked into the global financial crisis" says Mackie.
The puzzle will be available on Mackie's website til February 2010. By then Mackie hopes at least 14,000 people will have participated.
