4.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating August 28, 2012
By Jules D
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this puzzle earlier today. I am still trying to figure out how it is interactive. The book itself has some great puzzles but I could have just bought a "real" book to solve the puzzles themselves with matchsticks. I tried several different websites to see how people were moving matchsticks on their kindle to no avail. Any help?? I am playing on a kindle fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Collection of Matchstick Puzzles August 11, 2012
By xtatic
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I was in high school, fondly remember gathering around the table before classes started and challenging each other with matchstick puzzles. They are fun, hands-on puzzles that can be enjoyed by small groups of people of all ages (as well as solo!). This new book by the Grabarchuks features a large number of outstanding & very creative matchstick puzzles that I really enjoyed and have never seen before. Note that the book will show you the starting picture, and very nicely provides hints, as well as the solution. It does not, however, allow for manipulation of stick elements on screen. BYOM!
bring your own matches :)

If you have ever been on a cruise and wondered how they come up with things to entertain your kids, they have this book. We use this when we are at resturants and this makes waiting for the meals to come much shorter.

this app didn't work I tried everything. Followed the directions, but for each puzzle could not get the sticks to move into place. Finally uninstalled the app.

This is a very fun and challenging app. It offers game challenges for people who like games but is not so great with the video type games. I enjoy using my mind to figure out puzzles.
