It is always great to have a change from the usual puzzle questions especially for the people who like number problems. I love puzzles but I had not seen this sort of area maze puzzle before. These Area Maze Puzzles is the new puzzle craze created by the world-renowned Japanese puzzle expert Naoki Inaba.
There are 80 colourful labyrinthine problems in total to solve and it eases you in at the beginning with some easy puzzles before becoming more difficult. The questions require you to traverse a series of rectangles to find the missing length or area, while the logic is simple, finding the answer can be far more challenging than it first appears.
I love to do mathematics problems and this puzzle book is just up my street. It helps me to think logically and practise my mental arithmetic, especially with timetables. The questions gradually get harder and more challenging as the book progresses. I just spend 5 to 10 minutes each day on this book to help to improve my logic puzzle solving skills.
I enjoy this book and the puzzles help me to think logically. I am able to solve many of the puzzles, and occasionally I need help by referring back to the answer to solve the trickier puzzles. It really helps me to learn. I love that this book is small and portable for me to bring it around. Now I can do it in the car while waiting for my children or whenever I am out and about. It is available to pre-order now via Carlton Books or any good book store or online and get it sent to you directly when it releases!
