The puzzles aren't super-hard, but they are hard enough that you feel satisfied when you solve one. The number of combinations is big but not unmanageable, and you can fairly quickly rule out some of the top tiles because they have segments in black that shouldn't appear in the solution.
The pieces feel nice, and it is clear when you have the answer. The puzzle comes with a booklet with all the solutions, in case you get stuck.
My only (minor) quibble is that the tray that holds the pieces is a little thin and slightly squishy. It works fine, but I would have preferred a harder plastic.
Overall, lots of fun. My 15-year-old son (who has quite a bit of puzzling experience himself) also gives it a thumbs-up.
Even if you aren't a hard-core puzzler, you'll probably enjoy it, and it is well-worth the price. I plan to buy a few to give as gifts.
Disclaimer: I know some of the people who work for ThinkFun, and I got a free copy of the puzzle to try out. However, I loved their stuff long before I knew anyone there, and have bought pretty much everything they have ever produced.
Like I said, great little time-waster when you need a quick break from work.
I do agree with the others here though... they kinda skimped on the tray.
Speaking of... something that originally drove me nuts thinking some of the numbers were unsolvable... you use the tray itself for some of the answers. In other words, if you arrange the tiles such that both pieces have a hole, and thus show what's behind the tiles, that is considered a black line which can be used to form part of the numbers. I was solving them on my desk which had a lighter background, and thus didn't realize that, thinking the puzzle was unsolvable. Now I know better.
Neon green color! It draws enough attention to it that me and my students want to mess around with it and it can't be missed! If I had to guess, I bet this calendar will see a lot of student's birthdays on it (as opposed to the date)!
Tricky enough to keep me on my toes, but not too tricky that I give up.
I wish the black tray was a bit sturdier.
I also wish that perhaps it had a little pocket or place to slide in the instructions and solutions on the bottom so I don't lose them!
I love having it and can't wait to get a few for my other math/problem solving friends!
He loves it so much, even when he misses a morning at home, he comes back and makes sure to do the day(s) he has missed.
