103 PUZZLE QUIZZES, by the Grabarchuk Family, is the 4th volume of the Top Rated Puzzlebook: Puzzle Quizzes Series. The puzzles are original creations by the Grabarchuk Family and exclusively for Kindle and Kindle apps, like my iPad. To be honest with you, I'm not much of a puzzle solving person. When I can't figure out the answer, I get frustrated too easily. It's been years since I attempted a puzzle, but I like to read a variety of books, so I decided to give this one a chance. And surprise, surprise, I did better with the puzzles than I thought I would. Oh, a lot of them were too tough for me. But the book starts out with simple puzzles and progresses to harder and harder. The neat thing about it is the book is interactive. You choose your answer by clicking on a button and it tells you whether you're right or wrong. When I was wrong I tried again and then studied the correct answer to see what I had done wrong. The toughest puzzles for me were the Hidden Material. I'm going to blame it on my glasses. They are my challenge now, to see how many I can solve the first time.
With the long, hot summer days ahead, 103 PUZZLE QUIZZES would be perfect to keep you entertained while sitting under the air conditioner, drinking your iced tea or whatever, and developing your thinking skills. If I can do it, you can too. So what are you waiting for? Start puzzling. Have fun.
I worked the puzzles on a Kindle Paperwhite e-ink reader. The graphics are monochrome, but otherwise it's almost identical to the Kindle Fire HD version. 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 little notepad and a pencil handy, since they're helpful for solving some of the puzzles.)
If you've worked Puzzlebooks before, you pretty much know what to expect with 103 Puzzle Quizzes. If you haven't tried a Puzzlebook, and you enjoy logic games, you owe it to yourself to try one.
The following are some examples: The first, which has one star, indicating it is the easiest, shows a figure and asks what does it mean: is it a barcode, battery, bookshelf, or bug? The fifth, with two stars, shows two triangles, one in the other and 8 numbers. It asks what the ninth number would be. The twenty-fifth has three stars. It shows several series of lines and asks: Which material is hidden in the lines? See my review of the HD model for other examples.
The pleasure of working these puzzle quizzes is the creative way in which the puzzles AND the information offered when choices are made (pop-up dictionary definitions that help the astute observer) are presented. The puzzles test visual perception, space planning, recognition of numbers and sizes of spaces, determining equal/unequal length, and many other twists and turns that keep the viewer and player on his toes. Don't be surprised if your young friends can master these skills quickly (they seem to have an affinity for these visual conundrums probably due in part to their use of video games). But don't let that deter the older set of players. These challenge mental capacity while providing endless hours of entertainment. And the fact that hey can be downloaded onto the computer or other forms of the ether network system means they are portable.
These puzzles - and especially this latest version - are the most inexpensive investment in both mental health and entertainment for the road or the armchair. And they just get better with each new release, Grady Harp, March 13
