Emailing answers

Hi all,

To enter the competitions in the Times, how do i email my completed Su Doku puzzle? Is it a case of giving each square a code letter, and if so is there a 'standard' for this?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Abi

Have often wondered this myself, but have not seen anything in the paper regarding preferred presentation style. I just type out the numbers with a space between the columns. Have never won, though, so maybe they don't like it!

Why don't you email the paper and ask:?:

I just scan (selectively) the page and slip the little jpg in an email. [In fact my scanner has a 'Scan to email' button which makes it easy.] The Times seems happy with this (they have referred to my entries in promotional mailings).
