An old favorite--Mensa Math & Logic Puzzles--gets a brand-new look: it's now in color! And the puzzles are fantastic: they're the kind of challenge found at the World Puzzle Championships, and they require no language to solve. For example, you are given a grid of dots that has some numbers (0, 1, 2, or 3) in them. You need to connect the dots in one continuous path so that each number is surrounded by that many lines. So a "3" means that three of the four sides around it must be connected. All the puzzles are similar abstract exercises, and all have unique solutions that can be reached using pure logic. They're difficult--and really satisfying exercise for your brain.

What could be more appealing to Mensa members--or anyone who enjoys a good challenge--than a cunning test of intelligence and logic? That's exactly what these 250 puzzles provide. The trick to kakuro is in making it all add up: the game begins with a grid that looks like a crossword, except that some squares contain small numbers in the corner. Fill in all the empty boxes using the numbers 1 to 9 without repeats so that the sum of each horizontal set of digits equals the number in the black triangle to its left, and the sum of each vertical set of digits equals the number in the triangle above it. The kakuro puzzles start out simple...and get more difficult as the book progresses.

Add to that puzzles featuring Charades (word clues that break into syllables), Reversals (clues spelled backwards), Deletions (clues where you lop off a letter), Complex Clues (clues that combine these other tricks), and Containers (too fiendish to explain here)--and you'll know why puzzle fans who love a challenge will thank the Mensa geniuses who created them.
