Special Needs Kids

I am 13 1/2 yrs. old, a girl with OCD, I enjoy doing the puzzles! My fastest time is 5.29 with the medium hard puzzles. Any other kids or people with special needs do these? - Samy

i haven't any special needs and i certainly can't do those puzzles that quick. I don't think i could even do the easy ones in that time.

Thank you for replying to this:) Is that a fast time? I try to go faster but I can't beat that yet. - Samy

Go for it! I'm 14 and I generally do the Times 'Difficult' in about 7 or 8 mins, which probably relates to your 'Medium Hard'. I find Su Doku relaxing but also mentally stretching, as I push myself to get faster each time.

Give yourself a target, like try to get the time down to under 6 minutes 5 times in a row, then get it down to under 5 minutes 5 times in a row.

I'd also like to see a forum for junior players appearing soon, as I have seen more and more appearing on this site in the past few months. If there is a Junior Su Doku book, why not a Junior Forum? (Hint hint, Pappocom)

5.29 is rather fast, i think, for medium hard puzzles. i can barely do them in under 20 minutes. it's quite addicting, yes? i'm 17, and i wish Sudoku had been around (pappocom anyhoo) when i was younger. it helps so much with reasoning and problem solving. keep it up, you're on the right track.

God bless!!!
