Eyal Amitzur fig­ures out a way to take Sodoku to a new di­men­sion

The Jewish Chronicle - - News -

FANS OF THE puz­zle Sudoku can now en­joy it in three di­men­sions, thanks to Is­raeli ar­chi­tect Eyal Amitzur.

The 32-year-old has de­vel­oped Tre­doku, which uses the same rules as Sudoku but comes as a 3D im­age on the page, rather than the more com­mon flat lay­out. He has also come up with a ver­sion for chil­dren.

Mr Amitzur tells Peo­ple: “When you look at the blue­prints for a build­ing, you must use creative think­ing to con­nect the flat draw­ings to a three di­men­sional whole in your head. This was my model for build­ing Tre­doku.”

How hard is it? “I think it’s harder than the reg­u­lar Sudoku be­cause of the 3D for­mat, which takes some get­ting used to.” For those less confi- dent, there are Tre­doku Easy, Tre­doku Be­gin­ners and Tre­doku Kids books avail­able to buy on Ama­zon.

A free­lance ar­chi­tect based in Tel Aviv, Mr Amitzur set up game de­sign com­pany Min­dome ear­lier this year. “I love games but I like de­sign, so I wanted to use my de­signs to give the game a bit more free­dom.” www.tre­doku.com
