Norm doesn’t like Sudoku.  He says there are only three possibilities:

1) You fill in the possible numbers for each square until the information you have enables you to eliminate, to narrow the possibilities, and this eventually and more or less smoothly leads to a successful completion.

2) Exactly as in 1), except that you get stuck somewhere; but not too badly stuck, so that a little reflection finds the breakthrough and you get there.

3) You get stuck permanently and after a while throw the thing away. It’s not very rewarding, not in any of the modes.

So, what’s the difference between this and any other puzzle (he says blissfully ignorant of mode 3)?
