    They weren't kidding when they named this book! These logic puzzles are definitely Mensa-worthy brainteasers. Many of the puzzles deal with determining order, as in a seating arrangement, the order of ingredients added to a potion, or the sequence of events in a nightmare, for example. Other puzzles require using clues to correctly matching up columns, such as linking first names with last names and an occupation. Although these sound just like clue-grid puzzles, these are much more difficult because you aren't provided with a rubric to help organize and eliminate possibilities. 67 puzzles. ~ Anh

That's why this book offers 200 grid-based logic puzzles, with clues to help you figure out which teacher has which pet, which king ruled during which era, and who wore what dress shoes to the party. The clues are just enough to solve the puzzle, and there's only one right solution. Work your way out from the known, deduce the rest, and try to beat the average time listed on the page! ~ Mark

    Sudoku puzzles have exploded in popularity in recent years, and this product allows you to enjoy the logical puzzles with colors instead of numbers. Instead of using numbers from 1-9, Colorku uses nine differently colored wooden marbles on a large wooden board. The high-quality wood board measures 13.5" x 13.5" and is divided into nine rows, nine columns, and nine 3 x 3 squares. It has 81 wood marbles in 9 vibrant colors. The board and marbles are covered with a plastic tray that holds the balls on the board when storing, and flips over to serve as a ball holder while playing. The board comes with 100 different puzzle cards that come in four different difficulty levels and tell players where to place the first few marbles. The solution to each puzzle is achieved when the player ends up having one and only one of every color ball in each of the nine rows, columns, and 3 x 3 squares. Solutions are included. There's even a color conversion card that shows you how to alter any Sudoku puzzle from any book or news-paper and solve it using your Colorku board. Think the 100 puzzle cards that come with the game won't be enough? Luckily, there are a few Expansion Packs, which offer additional puzzle cards at a variety of levels. Each pack offers 100 puzzles with solutions. The Beginner Puzzles are fairly simple, the All Level Puzzles offer puzzles for four different difficulty levels, and the Advanced Puzzles will drive you crazy. The durable wooden game and fun yet challenging puzzles will be enjoyed by new and old Sudoku fans alike. ~Rachel

    Need a geography game, and don't want to go with the usual fare? This single-player puzzle game is extremely simple in concept, teaches some basic facts about forty different countries, and can be completed (with enough determination) by almost any youngster. The game consists of 40 country cards (with the flag, capitol, monetary unit, a plant or animal found in the region, and a national landmark displayed), the platform, a plastic frame, and six plastic pieces, consisting of opaque and clear sections. Your goal is to place the plastic pieces in such a way that a transparent path is formed to each marker. Puzzles scale along four levels of difficulty, and while the most difficult is fairly challenging, all of them are doable with enough time. A good puzzle with a geography bent. ~ Mark

    Tangoes is a fun puzzle game in which players must use tangram pieces (various random shapes) to make specific objects and shapes shown on puzzle cards. It's a fun game that develops creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Usually (like in the original Tangoes), players use only 7 tangram pieces to solve the puzzles, but in this double edition, there are 14 pieces that must be used! This makes the challenges even more fun as there are more pieces and puzzle options. This great set includes 112 puzzle cards which show the final shape that must be made (the solutions are on the back of the cards). There are also two sets of 14 puzzle pieces so two people can play at once! All this is stored in a durable case, which is perfect for on-the-go use. Double the fun of Tangoes!

    Put your spatial reasoning skills to the test against others (or the clock!) in this fast-paced puzzle game! Each player receives 12 uniquely-colored pieces in random configurations of squares (think tetris). 36 double-sided puzzle boards allow for two levels of difficulty, and the left side features six different combinations of either 3 (on the easy side) or 4 (on the hard side) pieces that can fit together in the gridded space on the right half of the board. Choose the level that suits you and stack them in the center. At the beginning of each round, each player draws a board, and one player rolls the die. Symbols on the die correspond to the six combinations on the player boards; players flip the hourglass and then race to select their necessary pieces and fit them within the grid. The player that completes their puzzle first receives a blue sapphire gem, the player who finishes second receives a brown amber gem, and anyone who finishes before the hourglass runs out gets to select one gem from the bag at random (4 different gems denote point values 1-4). Play continues in this manner with players receiving new boards each turn for 9 rounds, then players count the value of their gems to discover the reigning Ubongo champion! Boards and pieces are all durable plastic-coated cardboard. 1-4 players; 25 minutes.

    Recent Toys has added another great puzzle to their line of brainteasers. The Gear Ball has 6 sides, and each one is a different color. The ball twists and turns smoothly because of the gear action within. You can even see the gears moving on the outside! Grasp the ball in both hands and twist in opposite directions. This will scramble the pattern and then you can work to match up the colors again. Better yet – have someone else scramble it for you! I love puzzles that are contained in one piece - great for travel. Get 'geared-up' for hours of fidgety, twisty, and turny fun!

    I had a set of cards similar to these, and I used them to get the day started in my classroom. This is a set of 50 cards, and each has some type of thinking puzzle. There may be a word puzzle, visual puzzle, letter puzzle, or number puzzle. This is something you can play by yourself or in a group, and you can use them to jump start your day or just to exercise your brain. The cards measure 4"x 6", have a playing card type of finish, and are written in both English and French. One puzzle example is a card that has 6 clouds shown with 6 letters on each cloud. Using one letter from each cloud, spell the names of 6 composers. Another gives a sequence of numbers – 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 13, 19 – what number comes next? Challenge your brain to think more clearly with these problem-solving puzzles.

    Use the multi-discipline questions to assess your ability to reason. This game measures memory, analytical, abstract, spatial and math quotients. Contained inside a handy storage tin are 50 question and answer cards, an IQ test rating card and instruction card. Have a pen and paper handy; no calculators permitted. You have 30 minutes to complete one card after another. If a card stumps you, set it aside and move on to the next. Answers are on the back of each card. A unique perk is that all game cards and instructions are in English and French, so this game can be used in bilingual or French language classes as well. Note: this does not measure manual or emotional intelligence. ~ Ruth
