Do you do well on the IQ test questions that are picking the correct unfolded box? If so, you are in luck! Sherlock Holmes Puzzles: Visual Puzzles has a hundred visual puzzles that use the same skill, the ability to move images around in your mind’s eye.
I love the unfolded box puzzles. But these are even more fun! This is the first Sherlock Holmes Puzzle book where I did better than 90% correct. The first few puzzles are relatively easy. However, the challenge becomes greater the further you dive into the book. Until puzzle 10, the picture squares are aligned to a grid. But number 10 forces your mind to align them rather than twisting the individual picture tiles around. Number 11 just gobsmacked me. It is very original. By the time I got to puzzle 100, the puzzles seemed easy again. I think my brain really was trained.
I really enjoyed Sherlock Holmes Puzzles: Visual Puzzles. If you are ready for entertainment that is also educational, look no further. Plus no math, reading, or logic puzzle grids required! 5 stars and a favorite.
