Overview

Feel the burn! Your brain is in high gear trying to solve 188 puzzles of all kinds, from anagrams, rebuses and word pyramids to cubed sums and cryptograms. Find the names of 13 animals in a grid: you can search horizontally and vertically, backwards and forwards, but not diagonally. And no: there's not a word list to make the hunt easier. Decipher a visually knotty problem: look at several pictures of a twisty string and try to figure out how many of them would actually form a knot if the string were pulled. Complete a crossword by substituting letters for numbers. And do you know the unusual connection between these 3 words: flask, flash, flags? When you come up with the answer, try to think of other 4-letter words that display the same characteristics. Plus: What Comes Next?; Missing Figures; Double Magic; and more.
