The Sudoku Magnetic Solver - A Brilliant New Development for all Addicts of the Sudoku Craze

Share Article

Sudoku addicts everywhere will know that it can be very frustrating having to write numbers with a pencil in the tiny squares, provided by the newspapers, then frequently having to rub them out again. This causes the paper to wear through and tear or, at best, makes it difficult to read what the numbers were meant to be. A British company, whose staff are fast becoming hooked on this amazing phenomenon, have been working on a device to improve to this numbers game.

Moores of Stalham (UK) Limited, the UK ‘s leading manufacturer of specialist message boards, have been using their expertise to develop a magnetic board version of the Sudoku numbers game. The work on this has been completed, and prototypes have been tested in the market place with amazing success. The success has been such that the testers of the prototypes are refusing to hand them back – and they are demanding more for their family and friends. It makes a great game much more fun to do and much more practical to complete.

As all Sudoku addicts will know, completing the puzzle in the charts provided by newspapers or books can be frustrating and inconvenient because of lack of space, the need to remove and replace the numbers occasionally and the fact that no-one else can read the newspaper while you are completing the puzzle.

Moores solution provides a magnetic dry wipe board with the Sudoku chart printed on it, which is a convenient size to hold on your knee, use on a table top or even on the train, and it can be used over and over again. It uses black & white as well as coloured magnetic numbers, and a dry wipe pen, all of which are supplied in the pack. Patents have been applied for this product.

The “given numbers” are completed first, using the black & white magnetic numbers, by copying them from the newspaper or book. This makes it very easy to get back to the starting position if necessary – and now the newspaper is freed up for anyone else to read or do the Sudoku. With the dry wipe pen, you now write the “possible numbers” in the other squares as you work around the chart. These numbers can easily be wiped away as they are eliminated. If you have to resort to guesses these can easily be tested using the pen and wiping them away to test other guesses.

Once the correct number is determined, a coloured magnetic number is placed on the square. As each individual number is the same colour, it is easy to spot, from the colours, if a number/colour is in the wrong place or has been duplicated in error

The Sudoku Magnetic Solver is in production now and will be available from end of August. It will greatly enhance the fun of doing Sudoku as well as enabling more than one person to do the same puzzle. With two boards you can compete with friends or family over the same puzzle.

Moores are offering this solution on their website at and it can be pre-ordered for delivery at the end on August. It will also be available from various retailers from September onwards.

Moores are based in Norfolk, in the UK and have over 20 years experience in manufacturing magnetic message boards, as well as cork and chalkboards.
