A puzzle book that challenges minds of all ages.
People love puzzles and games. It’s not a recent phenomenon, although lately an intense and growing interest in both Sudoku and poker has emerged. Now picture puzzles are hot, and who better to put out a fun book of picture puzzles than the Complete Idiot’s Guide(r) series?
In The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Picture Puzzles, Vol. 2 readers will find:
• Full-color picture puzzles for all levels and ranges of ability
• Pictures appropriate for all ages
• Whacky, funny, silly, whimsical, and oddball pictures
• An easy-to-use answer key
My kids and I had so much fun with this book! They always look through my magazines to find the picture puzzles, but there is only one in each magazine so they were thrilled to have a whole book! This would be a perfect book to bring in the car on long trips or even to the doctor’s office. It will get them away from staring at a screen and also keep their minds sharp!
The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Picture Puzzles, Vol. 2 can be purchased on Amazon and retails for $10.95. It is recommended for ages 8+. (some of the pictures are really challenging!)
Enagage your mind with the challenge of hundreds of Sudoku puzzles.
From the successful “Puzzle Baron,” the creator of the popular puzzlebaron.com game site, Puzzle Baron’s Sudoku is the perfect book for the ever growing number of compulsive Sudoku enthusiasts. With a total of 400 Sudoku puzzles-25 easy, 100 medium, 175 hard, and 100 super hard Sudoku puzzles-this smart, symmetrical, elegant, and thoroughly addicting book will challenge and satisfy your mind.
I am a huge fan of Sudoku! This huge book of puzzles stays by my couch and every time I have a few minutes, I will sit down and complete a few. They are so addicting! We used to get the newspaper, and every morning I would cut out the Sudoku puzzle in the back. I always looked forward to Sunday’s because it was the most difficult. When we stopped getting the paper, I stopped doing the puzzles. I forgot how fun they are! I am using the easy ones to teach my kids and having fun tackling the hardest ones in the back. Great book for any Sudoku lover, or someone who wants to learn!
Puzzle Baron’s Sudoku can be purchased on Amazon and retails for $9.95. It is recommended for ages 8+. (my 8-year-old can complete the easy puzzles)
What could be more logical than a second volume of Puzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles?
Puzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles, Vol. 2 provides 200 more grid- based logic puzzles from the popular online puzzle site. For each puzzle, readers are given a background story and a list of text-based clues and then use logic to sift through the clues to arrive at the correct answer to a question. Unlike other logic puzzle books, every puzzle in Puzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles, Vol. 2 includes statistics-such as the average completion time, the record completion time, and the percentage of puzzlers who successfully complete the puzzle-to bring out the competitor in puzzlers and better inform them on how easy or difficult each puzzle is.
When I was in 5th grade I was introduced to these grid logic puzzles. Every morning when we walked into the classroom we would have to complete one before we started our work. My teacher called them “quizzles”. I was so excited when my son brought a page home from school a few months ago! The only problem was that is was already finished. Now I have a whole book for myself! These puzzles are challenging, but super fun and definitely keep you on your toes! This was probably my favorite book out of the three, mostly because it reminded me of my childhood!
