Snakes on a Sudoku!

Six Things will be delayed this week (because I spent the weekend at the crossword tournament), but perhaps this will hold you over. Ladies and gentlemen, as jokingly suggested (and graphically aided) by Alex, I give you...Snakes on a Sudoku!


(Go here to see the image on its own page, for ease of printing out.)

This puzzle works just like a regular sudoku, except the internal 3x3 squares have been replaced with snakes! Snaaaaakes! Each row, column, and snake contains the numbers from 1 through 9 exactly once. (Answer next week.)

Update! Snakes on a Sudoku is now an honest-to-Samuel-L.-Jackson book (available here and here):


If you enjoyed this somewhat far-fetched sudoku/movie tie-in, you may also enjoy The Sudoku Code.

...and don't miss Snakes on a Sudoku 2!
