Puzzles should be a challenge, but they should also be fun. In this follow-up to the popular Original Big Book of Pencil Pastimes, expert James Minter entices and amuses readers of all tastes and skill levels with a wide range of puzzles. All the familiar favorites are here, along with some that are rare or unusual. There are thematic word games such as "How in the World?," "In Apple-Pie Order," and "Long and Short of It." Logic problems that stretch the mind cover such topics as "It Really Happened One Night" and "The Forty-Two Beers." There are also plenty of quizzes ("For Bette Davis Fans"); threezies; word searches ("The Wild West"); mazes ("Persian Script"); scrambles; cryptograms ("Kicks from a Bottle"); picture quizzes; alfabits; blankies; personality tests; and of course a scintillating selection of crosswords. Some of the lesser-known puzzles, such as threezies, are accompanied by a how-to guide to help the reader along.
