this was an interesting game. I do like it, but was really looking for the regular puzzle games. But I do like this one too

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 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.

One of my favorite games on my iPad 1 (before I sold it) was "LetsTans Deluxe" by the Grabarchuk Family. It's a great take on traditional tangram puzzles. In case you're not familiar with these puzzles, tangrams consist of seven flat shapes, called tans, which are put together to form shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape (given only an outline) using all seven pieces, which cannot overlap.

Tangrams are a natural fit for digital devices. No more bulky wooden blocks or cutting out cardboard shapes. With digital, you simply select a piece, move it into place - rotating or flipping it as necessary (tap to rotate, double tap to flip) - and adjust the pieces until they all fit. The developers have done a splendid job of adapting tangrams for the e-ink Kindles. I played LetsTans Classic on a Kindle Paperwhite, where it ran smoothly with no problems.

Don't make the mistake of thinking these tangrams are as simple as those you may have solved as a child. Some puzzles are relatively easy, but some are considerably more difficult, and if Classic puzzles get too easy for you, download the Checkered and Duo versions, which will really give your mind a workout.

Just to add to the pressure, a timer is running. Even with a puzzle you've already solved, you can go back and try to beat your best time. At any time, you can press the "+" key and see the time that has elapsed, and pressing a lightbulb symbol will give you a hint about where a piece fits. However, using hints lowers your score, so use them sparingly.

(If I had one wish, I would add a casual mode with no timer. However, it's a count-up timer, so you don't have to worry about time running out anyway.)

LetsTans is one of those puzzles that's not only fun, it's a complete mental and aesthetic experience. Not only that, be forewarned that it's highly addictive!

This is an extraordinarily stimulating and satisfying book. The puzzles are exceptionally well organized. You are guaranted to have fun. The tangram concept is very simple yet thought-provoking. You will end up spending a lot of time fitting together pieces to get to the big picture solution.
These puzzles are a great test of your spatial visual abilities. As an experienced chess player, I can really appreciate this component of the puzzles. Just like you need to get on the elliptical or some other exercise machine every day to keep yourself fit, you also need to keep your mind stimulated and active to keep yourself mentally fit. I can't think of a better way to do this than to engage yourself with a book like this.
Stimulating, challenging and fun all at the same time! I recommend this book highly.

Another hit from Grabarchuk Puzzles. I just keep buying them because we play them over and over. Now I've started sharing them with other family members as well. We end up calling each other to say "Can you beat this time?" Great way to keep your mind in shape if you like visual puzzles.
