Review:

Once again the editors of Games magazine have scoured back issues for their best puzzles, games and amusements. That's a big task since even an average issue of the magazine is brilliant. You'll find ample ways to playfully test your skills with words, numbers, pattern recognition, logic and much more. The challenges range from simple to devilish so sharpen your pencil, have an eraser handy and plan on many hours of mind-tickling play. Plan on several laughs along the way as well since Games' excellent sense of humor is well represented here.

From the Back Cover:

Plus the Puzzle Decathlon, a mind-bending event offered as a 10th anniversary gift to all intrepid fans.

With 16 pages in full color.
