2017 Akron Sudoku Tournament

Saturday, November 4, 2017
Main Library Meeting Room 2AB, 1-4 pm

Do you Sudoku?

Sudoku enthusiasts compete to complete Sudoku puzzles provided by New York Times editor Will Shortz. The puzzles begin easy and get progressively harder. Prizes are awarded to the top three finalists.

The Tournament:

There are three general rounds, plus a championship round. The rounds are 20 minutes each. The first round will consist of three easy puzzles, the  second round will have two medium puzzles, and the third round will be 1 difficult puzzle. When finished (or when time is up), the puzzles are collected and our judges score them. The three finalists (top three cumulative scores) are announced after the  third round. They then compete in the championship round with the most challenging Sudoku puzzle on the auditorium stage.

It is free to participate. Meeting Room door opens at noon. Parking in the High/Market deck is free on Saturday.

For adults ages 18 and over, please. Registration requested e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 330-643-9015.
