Puzzle Quizzes

Puzzle Quizzes by The Grabarchuk Family

5 stars

(Excerpt from Amazon) Discover a new type of puzzle challenge – Puzzle Quizzes. It’s a unique mix of quizzes and logic puzzles where your goal is to find out which of the 4 possible answers is the correct one.

Solve 150 pictorial, hand-crafted puzzle quizzes in different themes: visual, spatial, counting, geometric, word, matchstick, coins, searching, and much more.

I have to say that The Grabarchuck Family keeps out doing themselves with every puzzle they come out with. This has 150 puzzles that are both quizzes and logic problems. But that is just the beginning. First, you decide if you want to play Easy, Medium, or Hard. Then you get an index that shows you how long it took you to solve the puzzle. I love that I can see what puzzles I have done and how long it took me so I can challenge myself.

I also love the variety of puzzles. I admit that I get bored easy. But with the variety of puzzles and quizzes keeps me wanting to see what the next one is. I have had to use the hint option, which gives enough of a clue without giving away the answer.

Once again I find myself saying that this is a great way to spend your time if you don’t feel in the mood for reading. It is also worth the money you spend for the game. Each puzzle that they come out with is better than the last. I can’t wait to see what they will come up with next.

Puzzlebook: 14 Valentine Puzzle Quizzes by The Grabarchuck Family

5 stars

(Excerpt from Amazon) Here is a special Valentine present for the lovers of the Top Rated Puzzlebook series. In this new puzzle collection you will find 14 holiday themed, pictorial, hand-crafted puzzle quizzes.

This is another great puzzle book from The Grabarchuk Family. It has 14 Valentine related puzzles. They are moderate difficulty, not so easy you get bored or so hard that you get too frustrated. They have the same setup as the other puzzles where you can select the option. If correct, your answer will be explained then you can go on to the next puzzle. If wrong, you have the option to go back to that puzzle.

I downloaded this to my phone. It was great to see it in color. Unfortunately, the back option that you have with the Kindle to go back to the puzzle if you select the wrong answer doesn’t work with my phone. I had to go to the index then back to the puzzle that I was working on.

I have to say that I love the Grabarchuk’s puzzles. This is a great way to entertain myself when I don’t feel like reading. Plus they are a great price for what you get. If you love puzzles, you need to get this.
