Talk about great value...100 puzzles for the price of one.

If you like puzzles,you'll love this gem.There are several puzzles such as "Lonpos" and "Kanoodle" that are similar and with several varients,and they all offer a large number of puzzles or challenges.They are one player puzzles;but if so inclined ,and you have more than one set,time challenges could be arranged where more than one person could compete against one another in seeing who can complete the same puzzle the fastest.
While "Lonpos" and "Kanoodle" also have pyramid building puzzles;this set of I Q Twist does not.However; this puzzle has 7 pegs that are placed in different lolocations and numbers.Then there are 8 twisted playing pieces that are to be placed into the playing board.The added challenge is created by having to fit one of the holes in the playing pieces over a peg of the same color.
It is a well made puzzle,made of sturdy plastic and comes in a sturdy plastic case that is the playing board as well as a place to store the pegs and pieces.Also is included is a booklet that is made of high quality paper and with excellent color illustrations of both the 100 different puzzle challenges and the solution for them.The puzzles are arrangede in 5 different levels of difficulty:Starter,Junior,Expert,Master and Wizard. Size wise it is a little larger than a deck of playing cards which makes it an excellent puzzle to carry with you,particularly when travelling.
I wouldn't begin to say which of these puzzles is the best;because they will all give you many hours of entertainment and challenge.Even after you have completed a puzzle ,it is still a good challenge to try it again at a later date.
