The variety of puzzle quizzes is vast - spatial relations, configurations, math, thought processes - they are all here and more, and despite the fact that they are colorful and imaginative, they are tough! If ever there were a way to keep the aging brain functioning away from dementia this is the healthy route. But as the tone of the puzzle book design makes it clear, the Family is always there to help - with giving us the opportunity to discover if we've reached the correct answer or not - and the ability to keep clicking until the right answer is illustrated. From such a technique - and with some patience and work - the puzzles become a bit more facile.
This is one of those books that is a must for your Kindle or whatever receptacle you own for downloading. These puzzles will while away the time at airports or on trains or just seated in the park - wherever some action is needed to stimulate the brain - and have fun! Brush up your Betz cells. Grady Harp, October 12
What I enjoy most about the Puzzlebook series is the diversity of the puzzles and how they challenge you to take varying approaches to solving the puzzles. Sometimes a straight-ahead logical approach works, but for many puzzles, "sideways" thinking is required, since a direct step-by-step approach won't work. Some puzzles require basic arithmetic, algebra, or geometry, but many puzzles require an understanding of spatial relationships to solve (for example: seeing isometric views of several keys, which key fits the lock?).
I take my Kindle with me whenever I'm going to have to wait somewhere (doctor, dentist, car repair, etc.) and I often end up working Puzzlebook brainteasers that I haven't solved already. (Note: I keep a sheet of paper and a pencil handy, since they're helpful for solving some of the puzzles.)
I worked the puzzles on both an old Kindle 3 (aka Kindle Keyboard) and a new Kindle Paperwhite, and the game play was fine on both. Playing on the Kindle Keyboard using the 5-way controller was a bit clunky compared to the touchscreen Paperwhite, but after working a few puzzles, I could operate the 5-way almost as quickly as the touchscreen.
If you've worked Puzzlebooks before, you pretty much know what to expect with 104 Puzzle Quizzes. If you haven't tried a Puzzlebook, and you enjoy mind challenges, you owe it to yourself to try one.
These types of puzzles really make you think and help improve your brain power. You are forced to think in three dimensions, see mathematical relationships, calculate areas of shapes, and many other similar tasks. Sometimes it just takes some abstract thinking to get the right answer. Just make sure that you have some spare time as you will not want to quit working on these puzzles because they are so much fun.
Where else can you get hours of mind numbing fun for under a dollar! I loved playing this game on the Kindle Keyboard. This version is designed for use on the e-readers and it works perfectly. The graphics are done in black and white and there is an HD version in color for tablets.
This is a 5 star puzzle book and I recommend it to you.
I downloaded this book from Amazon on a day it was offered as a free book. I did not receive a sample, I did not receive a gift card and I was not paid for this review. I am in no way affiliated with the publisher nor do I have a financial interest in the company. This is a fair and honest review of this product.
The following are some examples: The first, which has one star, indicating it is the easiest, shows four forms and asks which of them fits into a triangle which is shown with an empty space in its center. The eleventh with two stars is somewhat harder. It has a square with an empty space and asks which of four forms that are below it fit into the empty space. The fifteenth with three stars shows four figures and asks which three of them are identical. The sixteenth, also with three stars, has four numbers with a letter next to three of them. It asks puzzlers what letter should be placed next to the fourth number.
