Overview

What's a five-letter word for stimulating? Mensa. If you like wordplay to challenge your mind, this is the book for you. Test your linguistic prowess with 71 mind-boggling conundrums, each small enough to finish at one sitting yet sufficiently provocative to provide hours of puzzle-solving fun. Find the Missing Links by using each of 15 letters once, to create an interlocking set of common words. Uncover hidden items and the category they comprise by taking one letter from each of six columns in Cross-O. Word Spiral uses each space twice, clockwise and counterclockwise, as do Boomerangs, where every answer is a six-letter word that starts and ends at the same number. These and the other puzzles included here are guaranteed to engross, engage, enthrall, and enchant you for many months to come. And, in case you discover your IQ falls just short of genius, answers are provided.

    Mighty Mini Word Puzzles

    Count me as a big fan of Gary Disch puzzles, which I enjoyed first when I was the editor of Games magazine years ago, and more recently as the crossword editor of The New York Times. These puzzles are imaginative, playful, and expertly crafted--a great pleasure to solve.

    Mighty Mini Word Puzzles

    'Mighty Mini' says it all--these puzzles are small but serve up a satisfying challenge. Six different types of puzzles fill the pages of this compact volume, with clues that cover a nice mix of gettable facts--they're not gimmes, but neither do they involve egghead-only arcana. 'Missing Links' puzzles are curiously addictive, stimulating, and slightly tricky letter-placement exercises that should appeal to crossword fans and anyone who loves language. Nuts about anagrams? They're in there. In fact, of the six choices, word fans are sure to find something they like. I like 'em all.
