**straight**. Now, do not confuse this with consecutive sudoku! The numbers can be in any order, adjacent numbers need not be consecutive! Just like in poker. Merry Christmas folks!

I really enjoyed this puzzle. I’ll look forward to more of them!

Thanks again for a wonderful variation.

Yeah! I found another one as today’s Sudoku of the day. I can’t wait for the book!

Tried first one yesterday but didn’t realise they had to be sequences…. DOH!

BUT they are great fun! In fact we’ve enjoyed all the variations, apart from Boxbreaks and greater than, which we can’t really get our heads around!

Hi djape

I have purchased several of your kindle puzzle apps. My particular favorites are the calcudoku and sudoku straights.

The sudoku straights puzzle is particularly addictive. I think you need to promote them more on your Web page.

Also, I would like make a suggestion: make this variant go “around the corner.” That is, just like many card games that go around the corner by having Q, K, A, 2 …… as a continuous sequence, make this version do the same with 8, 9, 1, 2 …….

I think it will introduce some additional twists.
