Dr Tetsuo on his way to rule the minds

The rules of Sudoku are simple, fill in the missing numbers within the diagram with a digit between 1 and 9. However, each row, column, and region, one of nine subgrids within the whole diagram, can contain the digits 1 through 9 only once.

The Sudoku name comes from Japanese 'Suji wa dokushin ni kagiru', what means 'the digits must remain single' but actually the Sudoku has European orgins. Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler in 18. Century invented a number puzzle baseing on grid to be filled with number, but contrary to present Sudoku it was not partitioned into blocks. Sudoku was brought to the modern audience by Japanese magazine Nikoli, which started to print regularly the puzzle under the name 'Suji wa dokushin ni kagiru' often abbreviated to Sudoku.
