Product Overview

From Mensa(R) comes a series of super-challenging puzzles that go way beyond the average crossword--and also offer an authentic treasure-trove of wordplay demanding some skilled solving. Here''s how they go: each clue has two parts. One is the normal definition of an answer, while the other features a little linguistic playfulness--maybe an anagram, perhaps a pun, and sometimes even a word written backward. And the hitch is...there''s usually no indication of which comes first, or punctuation to mark the division. You''ve got to see through the clue-maker''s deceptions and tease out the correct answer by rethinking the clue''s wording. Some of the irresistible language trickery includes double definitions, hidden answers, homophones, and containers.
