I opened Puzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles sure that I could do its puzzles. How hard could it be for a girl who had Statistics, Probability, and Calc I and II? I felt sure I would measure up to the solve rates and average times shown for its 200 puzzles. It was not as easy as I expected, but I enjoyed the challenge trying to best the best.
Publisher Marie Butler-Knight plays fair. Six pages of introduction explain how to do matrix tables. Instructions are simple. Find the one unique solution possible by using just simple logic processes but no spacial or visual clues. Beware especially of the words neither/nor and either/or as they can be tricksters. Read the short back story for some parameters. Fill in the chart with X’s to show false relationships and O’s to show true ones. Be smart and use a pencil with a big eraser. The logic grid’s categories and options are all one time then it is up to the gamester figure out the who, what, when, and where links.
The puzzles can be addicting. Hubby grabbed the book and scanned one of the puzzles in the back. It is still keeping him busy. This book of logic puzzles is derived from those on the website www.Logic-Puzzles.org. For $14.95, it can be ordered on Amazon. It is a great gift idea for thinkers young and old.
