A diagram of three faces of a 3x3x3 cube, with one letter assigned to each visible smaller cube, contains a hidden quip (a proverb or short quotation). You find the quip with the aid of a cryptogram.
In Quip-Find puzzles, you find not only individual words, but also the whole quip spelled out as one continuous string snaking its way around the diagram.
One satisfied reader, reviewing the first book of these puzzles (Never Play Leapfrog with a Unicorn: The Quip-Find Puzzle Book of Advice) on Amazon.com, asserted that "Quip-Find puzzles are the Rolls-Royce of the puzzle word. They have it all." The book has received an overall four-star reader rating.
Now, this new book, When Eating an Elephant: The 2nd Quip-Find Puzzle Book of Advice, presents 109 more of these original and challenging new puzzles. The book even includes special new puzzles that present one quip in two diagrams - and a couple that present two quips in two diagrams. These variations add variety and new challenges to the mix.
Many readers are able to pick up a book of Quip-Find puzzles and begin solving them at once, with little or no introduction. But, if you get stuck, there are optional hints at the back of the book. And then, if you do need more detailed guidance, the book offers a comprehensive set of instructions for solving Quip-Find puzzles, with specific suggestions and examples.
Welcome to the word of Quip-Find puzzles! If you love word puzzles (such as Boggle and the TV show, Wheel of Fortune) and/or puzzles that require you to use logic (such as Sudoku and Ken-Ken), you are almost certain to fall in love with Quip-Find.
