I happily bought this because the Grabarchuk Puzzles are always great! I have to say that the first one or two didn't thrill me. If this is you, don't give up! I hadn't played this type of puzzle in a while, and it took bumbling through a few of them to get into the rhythm. Before I even got to Puzzle #7, I couldn't put it down! Just a few minutes in, they became fun, a thrill, interesting, and my mind started seeing the puzzles in a new way that made solving them a joy.

I found these puzzles to be a perfect challenge and, like other Grabarchuk Puzzles, they are well-thought-out, tight, easily-played, and a delight to tease your brain into a different mode of thinking. Skill level increases slightly with every puzzle, and if you get stumped, you can always get a hint.

Like a goof, I read the short, concise directions first. No need. The controls are clearly labeled on each screen so you don't have to remember which key does what or flip back and forth between the explanation and your puzzle. From my prior experience with this puzzle creator, I should have known that would be the case. It is an excellent product and a great value.

I never would have imagined that a few simple shapes could provide such pleasure and challenge for my brain. If you like puzzles, this is a great collection, and they quickly become sublimely addictive.

I bought this puzzle game to play with my grandfather. I try to keep him challenged and his mind active to help him keep his brain moving and thinking. I show him how to play it on the Kindle and play a few with him and then he is able to play the rest by himself. The controls on the Kindle Keyboard are very easy to use - even for him and he is very low-tech! The puzzles are very well designed and varied. They are spatial relations focused and you can select the degree of difficulty. I started him on Easy but he progressed to the harder levels and did well! I enjoy the toughest ones myself but they definitely take me some time to solve and I am a puzzler through and through! If you are looking for a fun and varied puzzle game to play with your family or our own, LetsTans is an excellent choice.

I make it no secret that I love puzzles and Grabarchuk is the best in puzzles. As a freelance editor and a full-time graduate student, I do a lot of reading, in many different genres but sometimes I need a different sort of stimulation.
I have downloaded many of their kindle puzzle games for my kindle keyboard but LetsTans Classic was the biggest challenge yet!
I really liked the interaction of the keyboard in the moving of shapes, although I struggled with flipping and rotating. This was mainly user error as I tend to see these manipulation as the same, only different in the degrees of movement. I did remove my kindle from the slide in cover as seemed easier to use the keyboard and page buttons, but that is a personal preference.
With the other Grabarchuk puzzles, I really struggled with the abstract puzzles that required me to imagine a shape and choose the shapes that would make that shape. This puzzlebook is all about that but it really put my brain to the test. These puzzles are not so complex that the solution seems impossible, which I appreciated but they definitely were not simple. In my opinion, this is the best puzzle compilation for shape assembling puzzles! Buy it and bend that brain!

The Grabarchuk Family puzzle creators hit the mark again with their LetsTans Classic puzzle created specifically for Kindle. While I enjoy all puzzles, I truly enjoy tangrams which are basically an adult version of putting the round peg in the round hole type of puzzle. It's like origami on your Kindle!

The only negative I have is that it is currently only available for the Kindle. I upgraded over a year ago to a Samsung tablet and haven't looked back since to my keyboard Kindle....I found myself poking at the screen and getting frustrated and laughing at myself because I had to use the keyboard to navigate. That made it more difficult to enjoy the puzzle but that's not the puzzle's fault. It's due to user error on my part with an old-style kindle I never thought I'd have to recharge and use again.

With that said, keep up the brain games Grabchuks because the Lord knows I need these exercises to ward off any future brain lapses. I definitely recommend. I gave it a 4 star not because of the puzzles but because of my annoyance with my lost skills on my old kindle lol. Don't hold it against them. Please make a version for us Touch Screen Addicts!

I have yet to be disappointed by the Grabarchuk family puzzles.
Each time, it's new stuff that really gets my brain going again.

With the Lets Tans it took me a moment to figure out what to do. I haven't encountered these types of puzzles in a long time. Talk about brain farts. I must have sat for 15 minutes trying to recall what to do. Funny thing is my 7 year old figured it out before I did. He was curious on what I was muttering(more like grumbling cuss words)to myself about.
After about 2 minutes, he did a big sigh and said "geez mom". Ofcourse I said "oh, what, you know what to do?", and he proceeded to solve the first puzzle. Darn it.

So, once that was figured out, I guess my brain decided to kick in and help my solve the rest of the puzzles. LOL.
These are good. It most certainly got my brain fluids flowing. Thank Grabarchuk family! Another great collection of puzzles.
