Occassionally I purchase a copy of GAMES Puzzle Magazine at the grocery store... while crosswords and other word games are nice, I especially like the "Paint By Number" logic puzzles.

If you're not familiar with this type of puzzle you can download some from another company here: http://www.conceptispuzzles.com/download/index.htm (though they show the solution from the outset so not as much fun.... you might want to have a friend print them out for you if you want to preserve the surprise)

GAMES magazine... wow... it has been a long time since I've read that. My brother and I used to each buy a copy and "race" to see who could finish the book first.

Of course my brother is like MENSA-BOY, so he tended to kick my @$$.

I have a subscription to GAMES, Betsie. Maybe I should start saving the paint-by-numbers puzzles for you.

aww, thanks Paula... but you don't need to, I just ordered the book from Games magazine that has only the paint by number puzzles in them.. I couldn't resist ... and yes, it's the Games World of Puzzles that I like to get too. ...

I also ordered The Happy Hooker.. the Stitch 'n' Bitch book of crochet.. oh, but that belongs in a different thread ;)

Aldark, despite us being mad, bad, and dangerous to know, I believe needlework is still legal in many areas. :P

It didn't load the next scene for me. I got to the point where he went in the jar and moved down the line...and it didn't load the next one.
