While visiting a friend, she was working on a sudoku book from dell. It was not a sudoku puzzle but another style. It had series' of numbers which focused on the # 8. It was in a circular outline but zigzagged inside of it. The 8's were filled in for you and you were to fill in the rest. The last number in the sequence was the first number in the next one. ???? I wanted to work on that puzzle and so did she, it was her book so she won! Does anyone remember what it was called. It was in an issue on the mag shelves this summer, 2008.

Please Help!!!!

My daughter and I run into similar "tug-o-wars" over favorite puzzles. Our solution? We've got an all in one printer in the house and I copy the few puzzles we both HAVE to do. A scanner could do the same thing for you. There is one publication (from a rival publisher....),however, that has dozens of puzzles we both want to work, so I've been reduced to buying 2 subscriptions--1 for myself and 1 as a gift for my daughter. It's the least I can do since I'm the one that created a puzzle fan smile

The puzzle you are looking for is called 8 BALL, it is featured in Dell Easy Fast n' Fun Variety Puzzles and possibly other issues. They often rotate 8 BALL with another puzzle that uses the number 5 instead! Hope this helps!
