Sudoku – the creative way

Sudoko is usually a 3×3 grid of 3×3 squares, with numbers 1 – 9.

Yesterday, the Duc Games Club played variations on the Sudoku theme:
– 2×2 grid of 2×2 squares using 4 colours of buttons
– 2×3 grid of 3×2 rectangles using 6 colours of lego

Pure awesomeness, and all built from scratch, on paper!

Everyone seems to like the proposed plan, see layout on the right, including the principal.
