Link: “I was told there would be no math”

When Sudoku came they said it didn’t involve any math, just logical thinking and pattern recognition. (No matter how we mathematicians claimed that logical thinking and pattern recognition are much closer to the heart of mathematics than arithmetic.)

And here comes the cousin of Sudoku: KenKen! Is it possible that everyone will start doing this one too, even though they can’t pretend they’re not doing math in this case?

I guess we’ll find out.
