Deviously Difficult Mind Bending Puzzles

Deviously Difficult Mind Bending Puzzles

Play supergames for the super-smart. These mind-blowing, brain-bending puzzles use a deviously tricky mix of geometry and combinatronics (the different ways objects can be arranged), and emphasize structure, pattern, and color. Everything’s visual and as enticing to the eye as to the wits. Try to solve the Impossible Domino Bridge Problem: at first glance, the top-heavy structure looks as if it would just tumble. But give it some thought and you’ll realize that not only can it be built but that you can build it yourself. Take the Ingenious Tangram Challenge; put together a Stars Puzzle; and Draw, Halve, and Quarter all the rooms in a house into equal-size spaces. There’s illuminating background information on the puzzles’ origins, too.

Lateral Mind Trap Puzzles

Catch crooks, expose con artists, and trap liars! Solve mysteries, explain conundrums, and match wits with evil geniuses! All it takes is paying strict attention to every word of the MindTrap story. It's harder than it looks, because most people picture the stories in their minds, and usually imagine something that isn't there, or overlook a crucial detail. But you can defy the odds. Trap the auctioneer who's trying to sell an old letter addressed to Queen Elizabeth I. How? Because you know she wasn't called "the first" until centuries later when there was a second Queen Elizabeth. Or capture the thief whose victims were dying just before they deposited their paychecks at the bank-just figure out that the killer had poisoned the glue on the bank deposit envelopes. Warning: the pictures that accompany each story may be hazardous to your puzzle-solving skills.

Mental Fitness Puzzles

Mental Fitness Puzzles

Get mentally fit by exercising your brain on these incredible thinking puzzles! Tricky and challenging, they demand a flexible thought-process and an ability to see beyond the obvious. Are you up to the task? For example: While in his local pub, J.P. comes back from the rest room and sees someone stealing his wallet. Instead of confronting the thief, J.P. just stands there and watches him spend the cash. Can you explain this passive response? (Answer: J.P is a counterfeiter who wanted the wallet snatched; he could then check and see if the money could pass as genuine.) Try to figure this one out: Jim develops an elaborate plan to escape from prison. He succeeds, and actually phones the prison guards to tell them where he is. But they don't bring him back to prison! Why? (Jim wasn't a convict, but someone hired by authorities to test their security system.) Yet another treacherously difficult puzzle deals with a "wonder woman" who can move a two-ton piece of equipment with no help (she's an astronaut in a ship with zero gravity, where objects are weightless). If you're having trouble, clue pages will help you on your way!
