I bought two puzzles for mother's day, one for each of my sister-in-laws. They loved them. Both gave rave reviews. First they really liked the personalized composition. Second the hex meandering was fun and different. Third and best of all, the hex confused my brothers. Fun gift. -Had some trouble with shipping, but COVID is the culprit interfering with most of the issues and delay. -Owner Mark was great and very responsive to questions and assistance. I'd work with him again and love the product. Order early in this environment.

I love this game. Fun and sometimes infuriating as it reveals so much about how the players heads work. As a side note, it helped a friend who survived brain surgery speak in full sentences again. So cleary the connections you make are enhancing the language portion of your brain.

These were a gift for a pair of scrabble-fanatics. The concept is brilliant and they love incorporating these into their games here and there. Mark was so great at answering my questions and double checking my order before it shipped.

I love it! It's for my wedding guestbook. The guests will sign around our picture. Mark got back to me right away when I had questions. He worked with me on the changes I had. Great experience. It's exactly what I envisioned and more. Thanks Mark! Dawn
