The Official Book of Wordoku: Sudoku Puzzles for Word Lovers
Frank Longo
1402736681
January 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
There’s something new on the sudoku scene—and it’s bound to capture the attention of word lovers. Wordoku follows the same basic principles as sudoku, except that solvers fill the grid with nine letters. Under each grid, the letters for that puzzle appear, in a pronounceable anagram. Then, just like the original, you have to arrange them so that every letter appears in every column, every row, and every 3x3 box just one time: anyone, including non-English speakers, can do that.  But unlike sudoku, the fun doesn’t end there: buried inside the grid, you’ll also find the answer to the anagram. (In some cases, to make it tougher, the anagram actually has TWO possible solutions.) It’s brainbusting, entertaining, and irresistible.

More than 500 conundrums, mind-benders, and mathematical teasers will help puzzle fans push their IQ levels to the maximum. Visualize this collection as a ladder into the stratosphere of intelligence: 20 levels of ascending difficulty each contain a variety of numerical and alphabetical questions that tease and stimulate the brain. Start from the beginning, with Level One, and work methodically through to the end. Think logically, rationally, and laterally when unraveling these, and watch for emerging patterns that make solving the later problems easier. Resist the temptation to look at the answers (all at the end), and when you're stumped, try to look at the puzzle from a different perspective--that's how to sharpen the wits and train the mind.

Book Review
This Revised Edition (also called 3.5) of one-third of the Dungeons & Dragons trinity of core rulebooks (the other two being The Dungeon Master's Guide and The Monster Manual) contains errata, rules updates, and outright changes to the already-published Third Edition rules. The majority of changes are made in a quest for the holy grail of game rules: balance. To prevent boredom and enable creative choices, no single ability, spell, character class, or weapon should have an overwhelming advantage over another. So what has changed? The spells Harm, Heal, and Haste have been toned down. Other spells have been adjusted or renamed. Weapons are classified by the Size of the intended wielder, not the size of the individual weapons. A noteworthy effect of this new weapon size system is that Small characters can wield small-size...

About the Author
Alanna Jones is a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist who has worked in a variety of settings using games for teaching and therapy. She has worked in psychiatric hospitals, as a church youth group leader, in therapeutic outdoor groups, and as a camp counselor with a variety of people. She has presented the popular TAG (Therapeutic Activities and Games) workshop in over 26 different cities across the country! Alanna found that when working in the field of Therapeutic Recreation there were few good books of useful, interactive games and activities for therapy. Most books were pen/pencil worksheets or outdoor oriented and required a large budget. This prompted her to write books that are useful, easy to use and full of fun, interactive therapeutic activities and games.
