Sudoku world's championship in Prague

The capital of the Czech Republic, Prague, will host the world’s championship in sudoku this year. Masters of this popular puzzle will compete from 28th March to 1st April 2007.

Czech economist Jana Tylova (31), the winner of the first Sudoku world’s championship in Sudoku last year, will compete there against the best puzzle-solvers from about 30 countries. Last year 85 puzzle-solvers from 22 countries took part in the sudoku championship in Lucca, Italy.

The biggest asset to sudoku was the Japanese puzzle giant Nikoli, Inc. It also gave sudoku its current game. Thanks to Nikoli, sudoku’s appeared in the newspapers and became popular in Japan. In Europe, sudoku was first published on 12th November 2004 in The Times due to the efforts of Wayne Gould who developed a computer program to generate the puzzle.
