I thought this would be great (fairly easy) for my 93 year old, bedridden mom and tried it upon arrival, after a few hours I had to look up a hint to get started so these are serious puzzles for serious puzzlers(IMHO). I should've ordered the magnetic variety to avoid pieces getting lost in the bedding when they get knocked off the bed tray table. The way the puzzles are made appeals to the senses, they feel good and they sound good- no plastics clicking together kind of thing and look good. I'm ordering the symbols one next.
It's stunning! The box it came in is so beautiful and the communication with the seller was wonderful and thorough. Thank you so much, I'm so excited to give this as a gift (and now I think I want one for me too, ha ha).
We love this game very much. We are homeschoolers and it's so helpful with vocabulary building, logic and imagination. It was delivered very fast and the seller was very nice. Thank you so much 😊
All around wonderful puzzle. 5 stars on every level. They are so beautifully made, the kind of thing that looks great on the coffee table inviting any and all to play. We all need to play more! Any of these would make a great gift. Arrived on time.
