Sudoku.
You probably know the basic rules. You are presented with a 9x9 grid such as the following, which is initially partially filled in with some characters, usually they are numbers 1-9:
 
 

You must fill in the remaining cells such that every row, column, and 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9, and the same digit may not appear more than once in any row, column, or 3x3 box. Simple!

The completed Puzzle is then:

 
 
And now...

There are literally hundreds of variants of the puzzle out there. These include: 0-9, 123, 147, 2-3-4, 4-5, Anti-Knight, Anti-White Knight Jigsaw, Anti-X, Ascension, Asterisk, Baby, Big, Binary, Bishop, Black Knight, Blackout, Blind Killer, Boxless, Brick, Centers, Circular, Classic, Clock, Color, Cube, Deficit, Diamond, Digital, Disjointed, Disjointed Irregular, Duplex Difference, Duplex Plex, Duplex Sum, Even, Extra Space, Fractured Spiral, Fractures, Frame, Futoshiki, Giant, Giant Killer, Giant Kropki, Hexagon, Jigsaw, Jigsaw Skyscrapers, Killer, Killer Jigsaw, Killer Modulo, Killer Parity, Killer Product, Killer Samurai, Killer Skyscrapers, Kropki, Layers, Lean Gear, Lean Wheel, Lean Window, Little Killer, Lucky Seven, Mathdoku, MinMax, Missing, Nonconsecutive, Nonconsecutive Circular, Odd, Odd Even Big Small, Outside, Parquet Square, Pencil Mark, Pentagram, Pseudoku, Quadruple, Regular, Samurai, Samurai Kropki, Scatter, Sigma, Skyscrapers, Small, Staircase, Surplus, Swap, Symbol, Tape, Tiny, Triangle, Trinary, Twin Boxes, Twodoku, Vudoku, White Knight, White Knight Jigsaw, Windoku, Word and X...

Should you choose to immerse yourself into this puzzle cache experience, then like it or not, you will become familiar with twelve of my favorites. Oh, also I have been led to believe there are online solvers for sudokus. If that's your thing, then cool.
 
If you enjoy solving Sudoku's, this will (hopefully) be an educational and enjoyable journey. If not, then perhaps not. Either way you will likely end up with 9x9 grids pervading your dreams at night.

As the cache owner, I represent that this action is safe although the various sites you will need to access to complete this geocache have not been checked by Groundspeak or by the Geocache Reviewer for possible malicious content. As a result, you are leaving the geocaching.com site at your own risk.
