It is no puzzle where Sudoku fans should head on Saturday 25 May.
What may be Taranaki’s first Sudoku tournament is being held as a light-hearted fundraiser for The Cathedral Project: A Taranaki Taonga and all players, from ‘hacks’ to experts, are welcome.
Cathedral parishioner and Sudoku fan Orm Greensill hatched the idea for the event, which will be held between 2-5pm in Taranaki Cathedral’s Peace Lounge at 38 Vivian Street. Number crunchers will be put through their paces with six different Sudoku puzzles, each with a time limit. The puzzles will range from easy to complete through to challenging. Scores will be tallied, and the overall winner will pick up a night’s accommodation for two at Nice Hotel, donated by Terry Parkes.
Orm said there will be plenty of breaks and finger food and players will get to enjoy some laughs as well as test their Sudoku skills.
"I'm not expecting all the dedicated semi-professional players. I'm expecting to attract people who enjoy a game to relax."
