B&W Picture Puzzles
The objective of solving a picture puzzle is to make comparisons between two photos which initially look identical. Upon closer examination, subtle differences are noted. The goal of the solution is to find all the differences by comparing the two pictures.
Word Search Puzzles
You are probably familiar with word search puzzles. However, the format of the word search puzzles in this book is a bit different than what you are probably used to seeing. The words are listed down the side of the puzzle with the vertical and horizontal rows of letters next to the list. Each puzzle has eighteen words in the vertical list.
The object of a Sudoku puzzle solution is to put a number from 1 to 9 in each cell of a grid so that every row and column contains each digit once.
Scramblex puzzles are unscrambling word games. All the letters in each word is given, but out of order. The goal is to unscramble the letters and find the hidden word.
Numbrex puzzles challenge the mind in two different ways. First, the solver is required to translate the result of an addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division problem from binary, hexadecimal, or Roman numeral number formats. Second, the solver needs to calculate the missing second operand in the arithmetic operation.
The solver is given two tables: one has the decimal, binary, hexadecimal, and Roman number table from 0 to 100. The other number table has the same format, but increments of ten from 10 to 1100.
Spellrex puzzles are missing letter word games. There are blanks indicating the missing letters and the goal is to find the missing letter(s) and complete the word. The number of possible answers appears in parenthesis after each puzzle. The answers are shown in reverse order.
Diagonal Word Square Puzzles
A Diagonal Word Square puzzle consists of eight blocks in a four-by-four arrangement. Each row and diagonal must be a word. Some letters are provided for you and you must find the missing letters to solve the puzzle.
A Lapple puzzle is an overLAPPing word puzzle. Each puzzle contains a word overlap from one to four letters. The objective is the find consecutive overlapping words by following the string from beginning to end. For example, in the string KIDNAPKINGDOMESTICATERRORIST, one finds the words KID, KIDNAP, NAPKIN, KING, KINGDOM, DOMESTICATE, CATER, and TERRORIST.
Shopping and Travel Math Puzzles
Puzzles with a "real world" scenario are especially enjoyable. The shopping math and travel math puzzles are not extremely difficult, but they do require some thinking, giving you a sense of satisfaction as you solve each.
One reason shopping and travel math puzzles are implicitly interesting is because solving them does not involve a sequence of very similar steps that are designed to practice the same skill. The novelty of each puzzle adds to their interest.
Some of the puzzles are multiple choice and some require a numerical answer. Answers follow are at the bottom of each puzzle page.
