On youtube I found videos from marbles the brainstorm introducing this game. Since they don’t ship to foreign countries I decided to build it myself and if turned out to be a fun project that was fairly easy.

The benefits of color sudoku compared to the regular sudoku are great. Everybody around the table can participate, kids can play it, it decorative …

I just posted a video on youtube on how I built it. So check it out and make your own game if you like it.

I am creating game cards at the moment that will give colored images of games for different skill levels.

I like it. It’s better when you can make it yourself anyway.

Hey Chad, watch my video and you’ll see it. I used a 1” round bit and cut about 1/4” deep into a sacrificial board. put the balls in and spay painted one side, flipped them around and did the other side. I used the fog and did that 4 times to prevent paint drops.

Nicely done! I like the darker board as well – the colors of the balls show up much clearer. I like the idea of a color oriented Sudoku game. I also like the idea of making jigs that can be used to reproduce the same thing at a later date – when you decide to make more for friends that really like the things you have made. Nice video – thanks for posting!
