Sudoku Puzzle Books for Adults

Sudoku puzzles are undoubtedly the most popular logic puzzle in the world, and are solved by millions of people daily in newspapers, magazines, books and also online. Whilst the puzzle type is a relative newcomer to the puzzle solving scene, at least compared to other stalwarts such as the crossword and the wordsearch, it is as firmly embedded now on the puzzle scene as those perennial favourites.

Undoubtedly a large part of the appeal of the sudoku puzzle comes from its simplicity - the rules can be explained in one line. They are, of course: place the numbers from 1-9 once in each region of the grid (row, column and 3x3 box). That's all there is to it! And yet from that very simple rule comes a puzzle with surprisingly interesting logic and depth, and it is possible to create puzzles that range in difficulty from the extremely easy to the fiendishly difficult just with that one simple rule.

Sudoku puzzles start with symmetrically placed givens in the majority of places - and this combined with the fact all those empty cells at the start of the puzzle are crying out to be filled in - are distinctive elements of this puzzle type.

We have a large range of sudoku books for sales, from the standard 9x9 puzzles through to all sorts of interesting variants. Whilst it is impossible to list them all on one page, here are some sudoku books that we hope will be of interest to you - if there's something you'd like to see (such as a book of a particular variant) that isn't listed below then please do contact us and we'll let you know if we have it or not.

Jigsaw Sudoku a Day 2022

One of the most popular variants of sudoku is of course the jigsaw sudoku. There is one difference between this and the standard puzzle type: the regular 3x3 boxes are replaced with jigsaw-style regions which wiggle around the grid (these are also known as irregular sudoku puzzles). Jigsaw sudoku are typically harder than standard sudoku as it's harder for the eye to keep track of the squiggly regions than it is the ordered 3x3 boxes of a standard grid. Another difference is that each puzzle grid, given it has a different configuration, solves in a slightly different way, and some patterns are undoubtedly harder than others. This book contains a puzzle for every day of the year:
