Sharpen your pencils - it's KENKEN time

If you love brain-teaser puzzles like me, you will be excited to find out that there is a new addictive puzzle on the market called KENKEN.

Well, it's not exactly new to tell the truth, it's just new to us here in the US. Originating in Japan,(don't they always come up with the best puzzles?), it became a quick hit in England. Now, it's rapid success is making it quickly become an international success (and I can see why).

I was slow to get on the sudoku train a few years ago, but now that I've got the hang of it; it's because one of my favorite ways to relax. I especially love to take puzzle games like this on long road trips and car rides.

So what is KENKEN and why will you love it? KENKEN is a math and logic puzzle somewhat similar to sudoku. The puzzles are based on logic and simple arithmetic, and are fun for solvers of all ages. Puzzles are "labeled" according to difficulty, making it a perfect puzzle for a wide range of abilities.

Buy it! KENKEN can be purchased at many major retailers. Try it out for free on the web at kenken.com
