Puzzles and Brainteaser Guide: The Best Puzzle Games For Kids and Adults

Rubik's Cube - One of the Best Puzzles Ever CreatedThere are a variety of puzzles to puzzle your mind – from plain jigsaws to combinations and mechanical puzzle games. But did you know that the first jigsaw puzzle game was created to teach students geography? Well, the credit goes to a British mapmaker named John Spilsbury. He pasted a world map on wood and cut down each individual country. By the 20th century, unique logic-based puzzle contests began appearing in local newspapers and magazines. Paper and pencil puzzlers like Sudoku, crosswords and mechanical pastimes such as tangrams and Rubik’s cube also became very popular

With the advent of the Internet, people began jogging their grey cells to solve challenging puzzle games on their computer. Different types of puzzle video games such as hidden object games, seek-and-find games and point & click adventure games became one of the best pastimes.

Today, there are thousands of online and downloadable free puzzle games, and this guide presents some of the most popular articles and reviews on the subject including preschool puzzle activities, puzzle games for your portable gadgets like iPods and iPhone and video games like Mystery Case Files and Monkey Island.
