Tom Tinker's Blackboard Puzzles - Book

Tom Tinker’s Blackboard Puzzles – Book Tom Tinker asks you to solve a series of 12 logic puzzles featured on his blackboard.  Each puzzle will pose a question which you must solve with the help of the “blackboard” picture.  Answers are provided at the back of the book. Sam Loyd Jr. produced Tom Tinker’s Blackboard Puzzles from June 1911 until September 1911.  Tom Tinker proved so successful that he was spun off into a daily puzzle that ran from March 1911 until October 1911.  Although they are over 100 years old they are still as enjoyable today, as they were when first created.”    

The simplicity of the puzzles is misleading. Although the concept is quite simple – finding the pieces and repairing them together – an amazing level of mental activity is required to complete the necessary steps to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are necessary to achieve what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to a general pattern. More importantly, solving puzzles is great work for the brain and can have therapeutic benefits.
