Syndicated Puzzles's comments:
Str8ts 6 x 6 is a great 5 minute puzzle that will test your sequential logic. It is the gateway game to Str8ts 9 x 9 and Domino Dice. This version is the best way to learn Str8ts. We are hoping Str8ts will fill the big worn shoes of Sudoku. We are hoping the word will spread and that Str8ts gives the puzzle fans a new glimpse of the future of puzzling.

The simplicity of a black and white puzzle with most of the information stripped is a beautiful sight. Especially if the puzzler is able to fill in the missing information using pure logic. Str8ts is an invention and the simplicity of this puzzle is what makes it so special. Please Enjoy, 800 puzzles at your disposal

Yay!!!


With all the hoopla and all the "big" games that are coming out today - this one I will be playing for longer than all of them...

Sorry for the enthusiasm, but I play Str8ts every day for at least a while - the puzzles take a while, so some of them may take a few days to complete - but as a brain challenge this is one of the best!

Good luck with this Jeff!!

Congrats!

And after playing Str8ts almost daily since I got it - I have to say those screenshots look really wierd, being so used to the 9x9 version.

This or the regular one, highly recommended by me!

Instabuy for me - love the game.

Hopefully this also means you guys have time to sort out the DominoDice website and fix the bugs in the app - I love playing DominoDice but the few bugs there really irritate me sometimes! There have been no updates for DominoDice so... please?

Badmanj,

We have fixed Domino Dice over a month and a half ago. I am still shaking in my boots regarding these Keywords. After being refused previously I used the word "sequence" as a keyword and I am thinking I shouldn't have. I m really wondering what keywords will be at a developers disposal in the near future. If a word like puzzle and sequence are no longer at our disposal because they are a name of an App. What are we supposed to use?

It really looks like something will have to give otherwise the" Keywords " will start to take on a status of ridicule! This is really hurting developers big time.

Mexican pesos

I am playing the 6x6 version .......

I like the fact that you guys don't skimp on the puzzles. 4 x 200 puzzles for 0. 99 cents is a good deal. Don't spend the 70% of my pesos all in the same place!

Out of interest, will we see Str8ts puzzles in newspapers anytime soon? The 6x6 puzzles particularly are great for a morning commute...

Holland and Germany are the first countries to include Str8ts in print format.We are working on all kinds of projects to get Str8ts into papers as a daily feature. One of the biggest problems we are facing is the fact that the papers are in a lot of financial turmoil.
