"Nikoli's Hand-Crafted Puzzle Workshop"
Tuesday, January 19 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Join MoMath and Nikoli, the company The New York Times calls "Japan’s Puzzle Palace," for an evening workshop featuring a series of custom-designed puzzles. With a focus on symmetrical beauty and careful curation, Nikoli has developed more than 250 types of logic puzzles and helped turn its trademarked Sudoku puzzles into a worldwide craze. Unlike most puzzles on the market, the puzzles in this session are not computer generated or mass produced; rather, 40 years of puzzle-making experience inform and enrich these beautiful, hand-crafted puzzles. Led by puzzle master Yoshi Anpuku, we will take a tour of eight of Nikoli's most popular puzzles: Sudoku, Kakuro, Shikaku, Slitherlink, Numberlink, Masyu, Nurikabe, and Hashi wo Kakero. Come back on January 20 to test your newly developed skills in a friendly competition; prizes will be awarded.
Get your own copy of Nikoli's book Japanese Number Puzzles from Additions, the shop at MoMath.
Presentations will be in Japanese and English.
