Meet Jin Ce, a 16-year-old teenager from China's Hangzhou Xuejun Middle School, who beat 236 other contestants from 35 countries to clinch the title of World Sudoku Champion.
Sudoku - the logic puzzle where you fill a 9x9 grid with digits - has proven to be quite popular in China. The 8th World Sudoku Championship, which took place a couple of weeks ago in Beijing, was televized live. In Beijing alone, there are more than 50 schools that have introduced sudoku classes for school children.
Our pal Conceptis Puzzles has a neat post covering the highlights of the Sudoku competition and shares a PDF file containing the puzzles used in the Sudoku championship. See if you got what it takes to become the next champ! Thanks Gil!
