Logic Puzzle and Riddle Hints

By Timothy E. Parker

Part of Brain Game For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Logic puzzles can take a variety of forms – involving numbers, words, or images – and they can be very easy or very difficult to solve. You don’t have to worry about how a logic puzzle is put together or know specific strategies, but use your wits and the following tips to help solve them:

  • If you can think of more than one answer that makes good sense, chances are you’ve outwitted the puzzle constructor!

  • Your job is to study the language and figure out what’s being hidden. Sometimes a single word can crack open the solution.

  • If you’re stumped, you’re better off stepping away than turning to the answer page.
