29 Puzzling Puzzles

From DIY Persian Rugs to 3D Sudoku Puzzles

— July 23, 2009 — Art & Design
Puzzles have always frustrated me, and I’m sure this collection of mind-twisting games would surely drive me crazy.

From puzzle billboards to avant-garde children furniture, this cluster has it all!

Implications - The credit crunch changed the face of family entertainment; instead of going out to a movie or embarking on a day trip, many families stayed at home to play board games, watch television or engage in more classic forms of fun. Analog toys such as puzzles and Rubik's cubes made a comeback for their budget-friendliness and ability to inspire nostalgia for multiple generations. Designers upped the ante by releasing innovative puzzles that far surpass the creativity of previous iterations.
