With the possible exception of 80,085, numbers just aren't very sexy. They're logical, rigid, predictable, and boring. Words, on the other hand can be funny, provocative, rude, and informative.
It's a mystery, then, that number games like Sudoku have proved to be such fun when all we've got on the word game front are variations of Scrabble.
KenKen offers a healthy twist on the Sudoku format, and is actually considerably more fun.
Yes you KenKen
The core principles of KenKen are very similar to Sudoku. The idea is to place numbers in a grid so that they all justify one another's existence.
KenKen is plain and somewhat overpriced, but there's no denying the Sudoku-troubling brilliance of its core number game mechanics
