Sudoku took off in 2004
In 1997, New Zealander and retired Hong Kong judge Wayne Gould, then in his early 50s, saw a partly completed puzzle in a Japanese bookshop. Over six years he developed a computer program to produce puzzles quickly. Knowing that British newspapers have a long history of publishing crosswords and other puzzles, he promoted Sudoku to The Times in Britain, which launched it on November 12, 2004. The rapid rise of Sudoku in Britain from relative obscurity to a front-page feature in national newspapers attracted commentary in the media and parody. Recognizing the different psychological appeals of easy and difficult puzzles, The Times introduced both side by side on June 20, 2005. In the United States, the first newspaper to publish a Sudoku puzzle by Wayne Gould was The New Hampshire newspaper Conway Daily Sun in 2004. The world's first live TV Sudoku show, Sudoku Live, was a puzzle contest first broadcast on July 1, 2005 on Sky One. It was presented by Carol Vorderman. Nine teams of nine players (with one celebrity in each team) representing geographical regions competed to solve a puzzle. Sudoku software is very popular on PCs, websites, and mobile phones.
