To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm normally bored by crosswords and word-search puzzles after a short time, but these have a twist in that you have to answer five Jeopardy-type questions in order to get all the clues for the puzzles. And they aren't necessarily easy, although if you don't know the answer, you can generally figure it out. I have enjoyed a number of the Brain Games series, and this is one of the best.
My 81 year old mom is a huge Jeopardy fan and in this time of quarantine I thought this might be a fun diversion once in a while. It arrived in good condition, quickly (I have prime) along with other items I had ordered. The spiral bounding makes it easy to keep the book open where you want it without struggle.
I knew what to expect from reading the reviews, but had I simply ordered without the research I would have been disappointed. Mostly word-searches with a little bit a jeopardy trivia built it. Still a good stocking stuffer.
The puzzles are fun and challenging. I was not expecting the word search puzzles that are a lot of fun. The problem with the book is the way it is put together.... the wire prongs (not sure how to describe it) that make up the spine don't hold it together well. I spend a lot of time putting the pages back on them. They really need to come up with something better.
