puzzles


Ever since I first saw Rush Hour, I've been transfixed by these little 40 problem puzzles. I've accumulated so many of them and continued to enjoy them I thought I would make a little page memorializing them, as some of them have started to disappear (no longer be sold). I'm also having a bit of trouble keeping track of which ones I've completed, so I also keep a little column for that, as well. I've noted where they have a dedicated website for the product which usually includes some extra puzzles or additional trivia. I may even eventually build a little local copy of the content, as it may one day disappear.

An interesting article about non-written intelligence and how it is growing... I wonder how these puzzles play into it.
