International Man of Mystery

Wayne Gould – retired NZ judge turned “international puzzle star” – is responsible for the latest craze in newspaper teasers, Su Doku. Gould discovered the number-based logic test in a Japanese bookstore in 1997. After six years of labour, Gould created a computer program to produce the puzzles, and sold the result to Rupert Murdoch’s Times. The game has been a hit in the UK, spawning a best-selling book (and two more in the pipeline), and has now been purchased across the Atlantic by the New York Post.
