We received a nice gift from Jim Propp earlier this month. With the kids off of school for a snow day today, it seemed like a good time to open it up.
My younger son played with it for a while and then I wanted to have him show how the game worked. Here are his initial thoughts about the game:
Here’s the first example of a puzzle solve. You’ll see that even having solved it once before it is still not necessarily so simple:
Here’s a second solve example – this one goes pretty quickly
Finally, we wrapped up by having him show some of the other pieces and me asking him to talk about what he thinks the main ideas are for this puzzle. Interestingly he doesn’t think that it is a math puzzle, but rather a logic puzzle 🙂
So, thanks to Jim Propp for giving us this really nice puzzle game.
