Sudoku

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudoku

The strategy for solving a puzzle may be regarded as comprising a combination of three processes: scanning, marking up, and analyzing. The approach to analysis may vary according to the concepts and the representations on which it is based.

While I've never played this game before, it appears to be very popular, and incorporates approches to problem solving that can be used elsewhere - scanning, marking up, analysis, elemination, varients, etc.

I first heard of the game when a scientist invovled in planet searches said the technique they used to identify planets in other solar systems was like Sudoku.
