Big Book of Acrostics

by Mike Ashley

Other Format(Spiral Bound)



Get ready to sharpen both your pencil and your wits with these 60 challenging acrostics from renowned puzzle-master Michael Ashley, a frequent contributor to Games magazine. Quotation-based acrostics are among the most popular types of puzzles, and enthusiasts of all skill levels will spend hours solving these Mensa-approved teasers. The quotations come from all fields of knowledge—literature, science, commerce, sports, and pop culture—and from such luminaries as Mark Twain, Emily Brontë, Dave Barry, and others. This one is from E.M. Thomas: “As we own cats by human rules of ownership, so cats own us by cat rules.” And this gem is from Alfred Hitchcock, who when asked what it was that he produced, responded “Gooseflesh.”
