Trading games of choice . . .
It is a known thing that J and I like to do crosswords. Most days, we print the one in our local paper so we each have an enlarged copy. There is no competition between us or not much anyway.
J's brother, who lives in Tennessee, does Sudoku. We send him copies of our local Sudoku and he sends us crosswords from his local paper. He cuts them out. He marks them Monday thru Friday and is careful to include answers from the Saturday crosswords from the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times. All this is by snail mail - which tells you something.
I have gone further afield, for him, than our local Sudoku. There is a site that rates its Sudoku as Evil, Egregious, Excruciating, Extreme, and Excessive. This is the increasing order of difficulty. Today, I discovered that I can print the answers to these bad boys on the reverse side of the page.
So I did. It makes me feel like the Answer Angel.
