Synopsis

The Big Book of Brain Games 1000 PlayThinks of Art, Mathematics and Science by Ivan Moscovich

About the original 1000 Playthinks, Will Shortz of the New York Times said it best: The most wide ranging, visually appealing, entertaining, gigantic collection of brainteasers since Sam Loyd's Cyclopedia of Puzzles almost a century ago. Now comes the same great Playthinks, but in a package that makes it an amazing value: The Big Book of Brain Games . With a more accessible title, it is presented in a more accessible format (perfect-bound in a slightly smaller, friendlier format, here is Playthinks perfected.) Inside, we wouldn't change a thing. With an obsessive collection of 1000 challenges, puzzles, riddles, illusions - originals as well as must-do classics - it's like salted peanuts for the brain. With jam-packed pages and full-colour illustrations for each entry, the book, opened anywhere, is a call to action. Twelve basic categories include Geometry, Patterns, numbers, logic and Probability, and perception. An easy to read key at the top of each game ranks its difficulty on a scale of 1 to 10, while indices in the back cross-reference the puzzles. (You'll find the answers back there, too)
