Looking for a brain workout? Well look no further with a collection of Mensa-level conundrums. Puzzles range from classics like Battleships to "Hex Loops" - locate a path that travels through the adjacent hexagons: the trick is it has to end where it started, and the lines can't touch or cross.
An old favorite--Mensa Math & Logic Puzzles--gets a brand-new look: it's now in color! And the puzzles are fantastic: they're the kind of challenge found at the World Puzzle Championships, and they require no language to solve. For example, you are given a grid of dots that has some numbers (0, 1, 2, or 3) in them. You need to connect the dots in one continuous path so that each number is surrounded by that many lines. So a "3" means that three of the four sides around it must be connected. All the puzzles are similar abstract exercises, and all have unique solutions that can be reached using pure logic. They're difficult--and really satisfying exercise for your brain.

Interestingly, this book will help you even if you are looking for work and want to prepare for the most difficult interview. It includes many games that have been adopted in the selection processes of the most demanding companies. Finally, if you like to challenge yourself, try solving each puzzle in less than half an hour, which is the average time spent on games of wit of this sort. With each game you will find a surprise. Sometimes a game of wit is solved with pure logic. Others will seem to require advanced mathematical knowledge to solve, however in reality only a bit of lateral thinking will be necessary, while in others, you will have to work a little harder and dust off your mathematical knowledge. You will find the following types of puzzles and logical problems: Lateral thinking: challenges that are seemingly impossible or require a lot of mathematical knowledge, but which really conceal a solution outside the box (in an indirect or creative way). Logical thinking: challenges that must be solved with logic, making inferences until finding the solution or, sometimes, eliminating the other alternatives. Mathematical knowledge: it will be necessary to know mathematical (and sometimes physical) principles to solve certain puzzles. Paper and pencil: challenges in which drawing schemes is necessary to reach the solution of certain mental games (although the most daring will continue to solve them in the head only). Spatial vision: challenges in which one must be able to imagine figures that are intertwined in two or three dimensions.
