On his sister's birthday, James gave her a special treasure chest containing her birthday gift. However, knowing her love for riddles and puzzles, he did not give her the key. Instead, he gave her this Sudoku, wished her luck, and left her to solve the mystery. All he told her was that he had hidden the key somewhere inside their house.
