Math Suey – Stimulating and Brain Challenging Games For All Ages

I hate giving the same old, same old presents. Years ago I gave a thinking man the New York Times Book of Puzzles. He finally finished them all. Now I’m not one to repeat myself when gift-giving. It isn’t price that counts when in search of a perfect gift. Today I found the perfect one for the thinking man when I opened a package and found Math Suey inside.

About Math Suey
The “Excellence in Thinking” Game Book©
Dan Yovich originated MathSuey at age 80. He is a Purdue University professor emeritus and creator of the games Krypto and 26!
MathSuey challenges conceptual and creative thinking. It features simple arithmetic manipulation. Playing is more fun than crosswords. Ideal for the hospital patient and home bound. Two games are featured, “Break the Hex” and “Unlock the Oct.”

I flipped through its 64 spiral pages. It contained 52 six or eight number analytical math puzzles created by Dan Yovich and Blake Dankovich. Working under the supposition, six would be less complicated than eight, I tried Break the Hex first. After many trials and errors, done correctly so on to Unlock the Oct–not so fast and easy though. Perseverance, patience, and practice best describe my applied technique. I am enjoying the challenge and continue to work toward the ultimate solution. I still haven’t attempted the assortment of creative thinking challenges also included in the spiral-style notebook.

Math Suey fosters creative thinking. What a great holiday gift idea for the man or woman who has everything, a co-worker, or even the boss! This new puzzle book for all ages retails for $12.95. For more information, visit www.yovichgames.com.
