What makes this series of brain checkers so 'enjoyable' is that they are all in color and demand an interactive approach: you know at the end of the test whether you arrived at the right answer or not. It may be simple to figure out how to use this interactive book, but the 'simplicity' ends there. These are tough tests and require mature concentration form the user. We are living in a time when people congregate at the gyms for workouts, tape cardiotimers to the arms for walking/jogging/running/ and buy into nutritional programs and that is all a step in the right direction: these activities help fight the war on obesity that is threatening national health. But equally important is providing a workout for the brain - the only inexpensive tactics to fend off creeping senility and dare we say Alzheimer's disease? Perhaps the language is too strong and certainly the Grabarchuk Family does not purport such claims. But these games and puzzles are far more than entertaining: these 100 Puzzle Quizzes are Healthy! Grady Harp, November 12
The following are some examples: The first, which has one star, indicating it is the easiest, shows nine arrows, connected to each other, pointing in different directions. Players are asked "In which direction do more arrows aim?" The third, with one star shows six boxes in an unusual arrangement. We are shown four words and asked "which word do the bricks hide?" The ninth puzzle has two stars. It shows four figures of lines and asks "which is the longest one?" See my review of the e-reader review for other examples.
1) Typitoon - what word does this image represent c( _ ) Is it a circle, cup, ear or teapot?
2) Considering a square divided into 9 equal parts like tic-tac-toe, were one to place the "knight" chess piece in any corner which square could it not reach?
3) Your cell phone got scrambled such that the natural order of 123456789*0# has now become 761258943*0# What are the minimum number of moves needed to return it to the proper order (A diagram of your cell phone pad will be helpful here).
Answers below in reverse order (no cheating!)
Very good book and glad I grabbed several others when I did as they do make for a pleasant diversion when I need to take a spell from reading.
3) 6 2) Center 1) cup
The usual suspects are all here: spatial, math, logical, and other types of puzzles are well- represented. The puzzles start with easy ones and progress to the hard ones. Still, I was frequently stumped by easy puzzles and breezed through some tougher ones, but the general ranking holds up well. You'll spend more time trying to solve puzzle number 78 than puzzle number 18, I predict.
If there is a minor suggestion for future 'Puzzle Quizzes' it would be to have a somewhat more detailed description for harder puzzles, to make sure readers completely understand the conditions that need to be satisfied to solve more difficult ones.
Overall, this is a fantastic collection of puzzles, well formatted for tablets (I use it on iPad), and a great addition to the collection of any fan of brain teasers.
