    Hashi wo Kakero

    In Hashiwokakero you are the king of the islands, and your job is to connect the islands according to their populations - small islands need only one bridge (it says 1 in the island), and larger islands need more bridges (the number in the island). Then remember that this is all one kingdom, yours, so you must make it possible for all the citizens to travel between all the islands. One unit comes with 30 puzzles with 60 pieces of paper (Two sheets of paper per puzzle so that you can enjoy it twice!).

    Masyu

    Masyu is a puzzle where you will draw a loop that passes through all the white and black circles. Their rules are a little bit complicated but once you get the hang of it, you can solve it quickly. It is popular amongst children.  Rules 1. Make a single loop with lines passing through the centers of cells, horizontally or vertically. The loop never crosses itself, branches off, or goes through the same cell twice.
    1. Lines must pass through all cells with black and white circles. 
    2. Lines passing through white circles must pass straight through its cell, and make a right-angled turn in at least one of the cells next to the white circle.
    3. Lines passing through black circles must make a right-angled turn in its cell, then it must go straight through the next cell (till the middle of the second cell) on both sides.
    Hints & Tips Remember, with the white circles you go straight and with the black circles you make a turn. With some puzzles you can sketch your path before completing your loop. In the partially complete puzzle, the center black circle’s path does not go down because it would cross the path below so it must go up.  One unit comes with 30 puzzles with 60 pieces of paper (Two sheets of paper per puzzle so that you can enjoy it twice!).

    Shikaku

    Shikaku is another original Nikoli puzzle, which provides a special sense of solving while complying with a very simple rule. Beginners may try starting with a guess, but will quickly see that the fun is searching for rectangles by logic. Shikaku is also a great math trainer for kids. While playing the game they learn multiplication such as a 12 can be 1x12, 2x6 or 3x4. And if you get stuck, look at the puzzle from a distance and you will soon find the next rectangle. Hints & Tips Try to find the numbers where you can draw the shape quickly. For example, in the partially complete puzzle, number 5 and number 8 you can solve quickly. Number 6 has many possibilities that can be solved later on. One unit comes with 30 puzzles with 60 pieces of paper (Two sheets of paper per puzzle so that you can enjoy it twice!).
