      Comments about ARISTOTLE'S NUMBER PUZZLE:

      I bought three, one for me and two as gifts. One gift was for a neighbor just as a small token for helping me. The other for my sister who is in rehab to help keep her mind active. It is a nice conversation piece on the coffee table. Everyone wants to try it. Since there are several configurations you can solve it many times differently.

        Frustrating, but fun. Left it on table during party -- was very popular. Someday we'll solve it. It's a good size, too. Small enough to put in my purse (in a bag), but big enough to see without my reading glasses.

            Warning - Make sure your puzzle did not come with any duplicate numbers. My puzzle cm with two 7s and no 3. It took me hours to figure out that it is unsolvable that way. When I changed one 7 to a 3 I had no more problem. Hint - there are many right answers. This is a great puzzle, lots of fun.

              Recipient couldn't wait to get the packaging open to try the puzzle. Started playing, put it aside, started again, put it aside. Was totally distracted from the task she was trying to complete!

                  This is a great gift for people who like numbers and puzzles. The perfect challenge for a cold winter evening with a warm cup of tea by your side.

                  The only con: it comes with the cubes showing the solution already on the board. People who easily remember how something looks like might already be half way done before they even started the puzzle...
