Cryptograms are becoming more and more popular every year. They were a huge seller this last Christmas and I expect them to continue doing so for many years to come. Working out what a sentence is supposed to be, by replacing letters, has a sort of secret agent/spy sort of vibe to it.
It’s lots of fun and many of the quotes are funny or heartfelt.
Futoshiki is a fun logic puzzle game from Japan. You have to place numbers into the cells corresponding to the more/less signs. It’s a lot more fun than it sounds and it’s one of those games that hooks you from the first puzzle.
With 208 puzzles and 3 levels of difficulty, this book can keep a whole family entertained.
We all love crossword puzzles. I used to do them in newspaper all the time. I wasn’t very good at them, but they’ve gotten easier as I’ve gotten older.
This puzzle book is great for getting back into crosswords. It’s difficulty is challenging but fair, and definitely not cryptic.
Kakuro is another Japanese puzzle game that’s a favorite of mine. Although Sudoku has numbers, there’s no math involved.
Kakuro fixes that by having you fill in numbers that must add up to the numbers at the end of each row of cells. It’s a great way to get those brain gears moving again.
