My Gram loved to do “Looooop-a-Word” puzzles. (That’s what she called them. “Gram, whatcha doing?” “I’m doing my Loooooop-a Words!” ) Now and then I buy a book of Sudoku puzzles but they always seem to get abandoned a few pages in out of frustration and for a lack of time – oh, and I always do them in ink. Can’t stand to use pencil on the thin newsprint. When I’ve made a complete mess of them, I’ve been known to completely re-copy a puzzle to finish it. (Rhodia dotPads work great for this.)
When I was younger, I used to *love* doing any kind of brain puzzles. I’d go bonkers over a new puzzle book- tearing it from end to end trying each different kind, (remember anagrams?) picking my favorite types… The letter substitution ones were fun as well.
Do you have a favorite kind of puzzle or game that you enjoy?
