The History of SuDoKu Battle Lines
The modern Sudoku was most likely designed anonymously by Howard Garns, a 74-year-old retired architect and freelance puzzle constructor from Connersville, Indiana.
First published in 1979 by Dell Magazines as Number Place (the earliest known examples of modern Sudoku).
Garns’s name was always present on the list of contributors in issues of Dell Pencil Puzzles and Word Games that included Number Place, and was always absent from issues that did not.
He died in 1989 before getting a chance to see his creation as a worldwide phenomenon.
The puzzle was introduced in Japan by Nikoli in the paper Monthly Nikolist in April 1984 as Sūji wa dokushin ni kagiru (数字は独身に限る?). Translated as “the digits must be single” or “the digits are limited to one occurrence.” At a later date, the name was abbreviated to Sudoku (数独) by Maki Kaji (鍜治 真起 Kaji Maki?), taking only the first kanji of compound words to form a shorter version. Sudoku is a registered trademark in Japan and the puzzle is generally referred to as Number Place (ナンバープレース Nanbāpurēsu?).
In 1986, Nikoli introduced two innovations: the number of givens was restricted to no more than 32, and puzzles became “symmetrical” (meaning the givens were distributed in rotationally symmetric cells). It is now published in mainstream Japanese periodicals, such as the Asahi Shimbun.
SuDoKu Battle Lines was created by Nick Hatzipantelis in 2003.
