The Escape Book 2 Can you escape this book?

Author: Ivan Tapia Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/10/2019

The Escape Book 2 is filled with challenges, puzzles, and enigmas that you must solve to thwart the sinister Wanstein Club. Based on the global phenomenon of Escape Rooms, this book puts your ingenuity, wit and perseverance to the test. Investigative journalist Candela Fuertes is at rock bottom: her fight against Castian Warnes, the head of the powerful and sinister Wanstein Club, has undermined her credibility as a journalist, and meanwhile she suspects Warnes is behind the car accident that put her boss in hospital. Corroded by the thirst for revenge, she decides to turn to the only people who can help her in a cause that seems already lost: the Orwellians, a group of hackers hell bent on revealing the secrets of the rich and famous. In order to get to the Orwellians, you and Candela must follow their trail all over London. The chapters of the book are jumbled up, and to know where to continue reading, you must solve the puzzles, optical illusions, conundrums and anagrams that you find. Each time you solve a puzzle, the number you arrive at will indicate the page from which you can continue the story. Will you get to the Orwellians before the Wanstein Club get to you? The clock is ticking...

The Times Train Tracks Book 2 200 Challenging Visual Logic Puzzles

The Times Train Tracks Book 2 200 Challenging Visual Logic Puzzles

Author: The Times Mind Games Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/09/2019

A challenging visual puzzle which will appeal to lovers of logic and deduction brain teasers. Use your mental agility to complete the grids using the train tracks. Puzzles included cover three levels of difficulty, 70 easy, 70 medium, 60 hard. How To Play: A map grid shows two towns, typically A and B. The objective of the puzzle is to lay down tracks to connect the two towns. Numbers around the outside of the grid tell you how many pieces of track are to be placed in each row and column. You can only use straight (horizontal and vertical) and curved (right and left) rails and the track cannot cross over itself. There is something very satisfying in the laying down of tracks. The puzzles are arranged in Easy, Medium and Hard, where difficulty is largely dependent on the size of the map grid (6x6, 8x8 and 10x10).
