5.0 out of 5 stars The Ideal Magazine for Gamers February 1, 2004
By MZ
Subscription Term Name:1 year
If you like board games, word games, logic games, video games--any games--this is the magazine for you. A typical issue of Games magazine contains interesting articles on a variety of subjects--from hobbies like card tricks to online gaming communities; unique and colorful puzzles; and "ordinary" puzzles put together with a twist.
From crosswords to crostics to word finds to logic puzzles and teasers, whatever tips your hat, you will likely find it here. In addition, they print a number of Conceptis Paint by Number puzzles in each edition, a type of language-independent picture-forming logic puzzle that is a growing trend: each numbered puzzle turns into a pixel picture when completed.
Even the advertisements in this magazine are interesting. While you are hunting for the fictional ad, you will come across tournaments, board games, and websites that you would never have heard about anywhere else.
This magazine is highly recommended for most any age and type of puzzler. I've been receiving it for years and have never been disappointed.
Side Note: If you find a mistake or a unique answer to a puzzle, Games Magazine will send the first such finder a finder's fee: a Games Magazine t-shirt.

5.0 out of 5 stars GAMES is a GREAT GIFT November 19, 2001
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I have been teaching academically gifted students for the past 25 years and GAMES magazine has been a part of my curriculum for awhile. It is never out of date and the crytograms and puzzles are wonderful for left brain / right brain thinking.
GAMES magazine teaches kids to focus and become absorbed in the thinking process. These are learning characteristics which are surprisingly scarce these days, even in very bright students.
GAMES magazine is also balanced between mental gymnastics and humor - it is fun to find the fake ad and enter the contests. It is the only magazine I have ever read in which I even like to read the ads!
It is a thumbs up publication!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine for puzzle-lovers! July 17, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I've been a fan of GAMES magazine for many years! My favorite section is "Pencilwise" which is crosswords, logic puzzles, word games, and other puzzles. The puzzles come in different levels, with some puzzles geared for kids, some for beginners, and some that are very difficult.
My only complaint is that the magazine is only published 10 times a year.
If you like GAMES, try GAMES World of Puzzles Magazine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent magazine. I LOVE the hidden contests September 15, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I've been "reading" Games Magazine for over 10 years. The puzzles range in difficulty from the very easy to the obscenely hard. Every issue has at least one contest (requiring the reader to solve puzzles and games, of course) with a prize that can vary from a t-shirt to $1,000. Whether you are a fan of crosswords, logic puzzles, cryptograms, or word games, you'll find something to spend your free time on with GAMES Magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to keep your mind sharp... December 12, 2001
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This isn't just a book of jumbles, it is games for smart people. The logic and crossword puzzles are really challenging, and keep you on your toes. There are some light weight ones to help you cool down, but their annual treasure hunt is the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enhance your mental agility, with Games Magazine February 7, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I've been puzzling with Games since it was first published. Some of the changes have been good, some disappointing (to me, because a favorite may have been deleted), but this magazine has something for every level of puzzler.

Crosswords, Cryptic and Double Crostics are my particular favorites, and then I move on to others. The highest level of difficulty in any type of puzzle will challenge even the most nimble mind.

Other puzzles get my attention as well, and those I choose to skip will likely be tackled by other members of the family.

The easiest levels allow a person to get an easy start, build confidence and then move on up the ladder of challenging mind-benders.

The contests are interesting, but usually quite difficult for average solvers.

Time-consuming is an appropriate adjective for this collection, though the more you solve, the faster you get at finishing. Puzzlers already know that one may drop the current teaser at any moment, and return in five minutes, days or weeks to pick up with nothing lost -- and only the enjoyment delayed a bit.

Always a treat, and something for any level of puzzle solver.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic! October 26, 2001
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Games magazine is one of those classic magazines that I've always enjoyed. Although I've found it difficult to find outside of more "specialty" newstands, when I do I'm sure to buy a copy! Unlike many other magazines, Games never goes out of date. The content is availible to be pursued at your lesiure, even years afterwards! I once found a stash of several dozen copies in a friends basement, and spent several weeks pouring over them, savouring every moment.

In my elementary school gifted program we read Games. In the walk-in closet with the oil pastels, clay, toothpicks and other supplies were hundreds of back copies that I borrowed on rotation. I still love Games every bit as much today, but I can still smell the old classroom when I read it, so I imagine I'm a bit biased.

What I can tell you is that every issue is strangely timeless. Although there are lots of traditional games involved - crostics and the like, there are so many different kinds of puzzles - trivia and history mixed with deduction, linguistic puzzlers, and, it seems, just an endless variety.

My favorites have always included hidden contests - which I often can't find - but it's just amazing that they were there and I missed them. The people who solve them must be MI6 agents!

My absolute favorite are the fake ads. When I was ten I posted the roach hotel ad on my wall - it was a luxury hotel for roaches a la flea circus. I had to ask my mom what a real roach hotel was. One of the greatest things Games provides is this living culture of laughter and fun. When you're a regular reader you really feel a part of a larger community. I thought it was amazing that people produce this magazine for a living, and assumed that was childish naivete. Meanwhile, the older I get, the more I admire them. After all - I'm an accountant.

Sorry to say it's not being published. It was changed to "Zillions" magazine some years ago (they converted subscriptions) and then dropped altogether. Too bad, it was a wonderful magazine. If they ever start it up again, I hope the renew my subscrition where it left off! :-)
