### Geocache Description:

Sudoku, also spelled Su Doku, is a logic-based placement puzzle.

## NOTE: Not at the coordinates above.

A tobacco free zone. No other signs posted. A small neighborhood park. A kiddie playground. One shelter with one table. A Park bench near by.
There is an open area that leads right to the edge of the swamp. A small trail east from there. I recommend approach this from the NORTH. The south side is heavy with buck-thorn scratchy things. OUCH!

Sudoku Objective

The objective of the game is to fill all the blank squares in a game with the correct numbers. There are three very simple constraints to follow. In a 9 by 9 square Sudoku game:

* Every row of 9 numbers must include all digits 1 through 9 in any order
* Every column of 9 numbers must include all digits 1 through 9 in any order
* Every 3 by 3 subsection of the 9 by 9 square must include all digits 1 through 9

Every Sudoku games begins with a number of squares already filled in, and the difficulty of each game is largely a function of how many squares are filled in. The more squares that are known, the easier it is to figure out which numbers go in the open squares. As you fill in squares correctly, options for the remaining squares are narrowed and it becomes easier to fill them in.

Now after you solve this Sudoku go to

North bA bB : eG eC.gD fB eH

West cC eE : cE dH.iH gC iF

There should be one big Geo beacon.

You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.
