Most of the trouble I get into is when my daughter is late getting done with swim practice. I get bored and start clicking on Twitter links. Before I know it, I’m addicted to a new game.
Ian Byrd from @byrdseedgifted tweeted the link for “Oh hi” out a couple of days ago. For those of you who enjoy Sudoku, this logic puzzle should be right up your alley. For those of you who think Sudoku is evil – you’re welcome.
“Oh hi” is browser based, and the game appears to work on any device, which makes it even more wicked.
I have lots of devices.
I’m not going to try to explain the game because the site does a good job with a simple tutorial. Basically, you need to get the same amount of blue squares and red squares in every row and column without repeating the pattern. However, you can never have more than 2 of the same color adjacent to each other. There are 4 levels: 4×4, 6×6, 8×8, and 10×10. I’m still on the 8×8 – mostly because I like the feeling of being somewhat challenged and majorly successful at the same time. Frankly, I only got that far because of my daughter’s encouragement ;)
If you’re struggling to find an activity to fill in small time gaps during the last couple of days before Thanksgiving break, this might be a good option!
