More than 75,000 people visited Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Cherry Blossom Festival on April 28th and 29th. Hundreds of visitors enjoyed Nikoli’s Shikaku and Hashi for the first time. Twelve-years-old Kayla and Maya liked Shikaku because they thought it was easier than Sudoku. Judi who is an experienced Sudoku lover also said, “Shikaku is challenging and visual. It is fun to make shapes of squares.” Other experienced Sudoku solvers thought Hashi was more challenging and satisfying than Shikaku. It was a great opportunity to introduce Sudoku for children and adults who have not tried yet. Victoria, Lawrence and Norine, a family purchased Sudoku to go by Workman to share and spend time together. The Monster Book of Logic Puzzles and Sudoku by Sterling were also popular for those who liked Shikaku and Hashi.
