While this involves numbers, math has nothing to do with it. Instead it’s a test of logic. The game was invented in France and then popularized by a Japanese company in 2005. Like most players, I started on easy puzzles (with very few missing numbers), and worked my way up to a level that http://www.websudoku.com/ calls “Evil.”

The Toilet Paper Roll Toss. The nuttiness of the pin drop game is nothing compared to this one. The game started innocently enough, though more recently in 2006 when I moved into my condo. Sitting on the toilet and finishing off a roll of toilet paper I would toss the cardboard tube into the wastebasket about four feet away. Eventually I became proud of how often I accurately hit the wastebasket, and a running count of the statistics began. My old record was ten tubes in a row before a miss, and that record stood for years. But since I got married and David moved in, the use of toilet paper has of course doubled, so there are more opportunities for this exciting contest to occur. In the beginning David was astounded to learn that I wanted him to save the tubes (he caught me taking one from a wastebasket in the guest room half-bath and asked me what I was doing, so I, chagrined, explained). But now he's resigned himself to the madness.
