Kakuro vs. Sudoku?
In the long list of great rivalries does the matchup of Kakuro vs. Sudoku really fit in? Probably not…but that doesn’t mean we can’t debate it like it does. Rivals are rivals for a variety of reasons, but one of the most important is that the two are competitive. In other words, there is no clear-cut favorite between them.
People may like both of the options and choosing between the two of them might be quite difficult. For instance there are man people out there who are fans of both Star Wars and Star Trek in equal measure, and having to decide which space saga they prefer would be a difficult, if not nearly impossible task, as they both have their own sets of pros and cons. Kakuro and Sudoku are the same way.
Each game is different and both have their own unique sets of plusses and minuses. And much like the Star Wars vs. Star Trek debate, both Kakuro and Sudoku can be enjoyed on their own, without interference from the other. You can play both, and it’s probably a good thing that you do, for as the oft-used quote so eloquently says, “variety is the spice of life.” But we live in a competitive society where things that aren’t natural competitors are pinned against one another just for the sake of seeing who would win.
Yes, it’s gladiatorial and yes, it’s completely unnecessary but our curiosity is killing us and we think it would be a fun debate to have. So we ask you this: In the battle between online Kakuro and Sudoku who wins? Tell us what you think here: facebook.com/kakuro.
