Sudoku–the 9 x 9 number puzzles that swept the country almost overnight–meets notes and rests in this fun, flexible game book. The rules are simple: Instead of putting the numbers 1 through 9 in each row, column and 3×3 square, put a whole, half, quarter, eighth, and sixteenth note and whole, half, quarter, and eighth rest in each. For even the most savvy sudoku puzzlers, the use of music symbols will pose an exciting new challenge. To allow everyone to experience success together, each of the 29 reproducible puzzles in “Music Symbol Sudokuô” is offered in an A, B and C version. The solution for all three versions is the same but more symbols are supplied in the A version, making it the easiest (comparable to a one- or two-star “regular” puzzle). B is a little more difficult (three-star) and C is the most difficult of the three (four-star). Sharpen those pencils–or do you sudoku in pen?–and get ready to get hooked!
