My experience is, when I have a few minutes free during the day, I want to rest and clear my head. Playing this game of thought should be tiring, but it isn't. Sudoku is refreshing! Perhaps it is the reason Sudoku is considered as a game to improve concentration, memory and analytical thinking. It drives us to keep challenging ourselves in this simple thought game.
