More About Tetsuya Nishio

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! According to The Times of London, "Tetsuya Nishio is the undisputed grand 'puzzle master' of Sudoku: a bespectacled fiend from the darkest suburbs of Tokyo who spends his every waking hour devising abominable new ways to torture our brain cells. His only weapon is logic, but, in his own words, 'It is a knife that kills.' His commitment to deviousness is absolute."
Nishio is a world champion of number-logic puzzles. He reigns as the single-most important figure in Sudoku in Japan. He invented O'Ekaki (Paint by Sudoku) puzzles in the late 1980s, which are steadily becoming as popular as Sudoku. He is also the chairman of the Japan Puzzle Team at the annual World Puzzle Championships.
At the 2007 World Puzzle Championship, Nishio placed fourth amongst the greatest Sudoku puzzlers in the world!

Reviews - What do customers think about More O'Ekaki: Paint by Numbers From Its Inventor?

First Timer  Sep 20, 2008
I purchased this book to have something to do on a plane trip. I was addicted from the start! I am new to O'ekaki so these were challenging enough. I recommend a mechanical pencil and lots of spare lead. Definitely fun and the puzzles get harder as you go so perfect for a beginner.
My favorite  Dec 17, 2007
I love, love, love these kinds of picture puzzles. I have been doing them for a long time. I do not share reviews that these puzzles are too easy. Just right for me, because I do not have the patience to spend hours on one puzzle and I don't like all the counting of tiny squares. I liked the puzzle caption the author gave to each picture, which added another puzzle element. Most of the pictures were quite clever and you could tell what they were. For the most part, the puzzle solving was well designed; such as you get stuck and figure out just one clue, which triggers a bunch more moves.
Buy Stock in Pencils  Oct 23, 2007
I didn't like this version at all except for the 'Four-Fifths O'Ekaki' which there were only four.

The squares are too large and you can go through a whole pencil in just a few puzzles. The pictures weren't very good either. If you hold it at arms length you might, with the title, be able to figure out what it is.
Good book, but be careful  Sep 24, 2007
I really liked this O'Ekaki. There were more puzzles than I would have liked that you had to make guesses, so that was a problem. But the completed puzzles are mostly really pretty, and so it was worth the effort of getting through those puzzles that weren't so well-constructed.
Still too easy  Aug 4, 2007
Although this book has a few puzzles which are more difficult than the first one, it is still way too easy for anyone who has had any experience. Only for beginner-to-medium type solvers.
