I don’ t know about you, but I’m a little bored by Sudoku. Once you figure it out it’s just a matter of going through the paces to solve it. It just gets to be a matter of how fast you can get them done. But, there are other number puzzle games out there. This one, Futoshiki is a similar number game, but faster to play and more interesting.

The idea of Futoshiki is that you have a 4×4 or 5×5 grid. Each row and column must have the numbers 1-4 (or 1-5 for a 5×5 game) only once. In addition there are arrows on the board that signify when an adjoining cell must be greater than the other. Futoshiki includes 12,000 different puzzles — should keep me busy for a couple days.

This version does a good job and provides good customization options. If you like Sudoku but are looking for something different, try this. I think you’ll like it.
