Another monster collection for monster puzzlers!

Hard on the heels of its bestselling sister volume, The Amazing 1,000 Puzzle Challenge, this visually stunning full-color feast of 1,000 puzzles and games will keep puzzlers, their family and friends amused, intrigued and perplexed for many months. Some of the finest puzzle-designers in the world have contributed to this book, making it a simultaneously fascinating and frustrating mental challenge.

The Amazing 1000 Puzzle Challenge 2 contains just about every imaginable type of printable puzzle. From number puzzles to visual-spatial posers, crosswords to lateral thinking puzzles, word games to mazes, this massive collection of brainteasers is guaranteed to banish boredom.

Like its highly successful forerunner, this puzzle book is unusual in that all of the puzzles are in full color. This immediately gives the puzzle-designer a whole new world of opportunity in terms of laying red herrings and displaying black humor, anything to leave puzzlers in a purple haze....

But puzzlers need not fear. If a puzzle proves to be just too tricky, too fiendish or simply incomprehensible, then the answer section at the back of the book will explain everything, giving not just the answer but also, where necessary, the logic behind the answer.

Preface

Introduction

There is a theory that being good at puzzles proves your are being of superior intelligence. This is pure piffle. Some of the biggest lummoxes you could come across are puzzle fanatics. On the other hand, puzzles are loads of fun if you have a certain amount of patience, ingenuity and sheer low-down cunning. If you don't take them too seriously they can help while away many a pleasant hour or make tedious journeys pass quickly.

The aim in putting this book together was quite simply to you, the puzzler, some good old-fashioned fun. This book won't improve your IQ, it won't qualify you for entry to anything and it won't tell the world anything it doesn't already know about your intelligence. So relax and let your mind slowly come grips with the work of some of the world's most creative and successful puzzle compilers, who have been published in just about every corner of the globe.

You are cordially invited to join that happy band of brothers and sisters who have nothing better to do with their time than wrestle with puzzles. OK, you may never save the world but, on the other hand, you will do it very little damage and, in these strange days, there is much to be said for that.
