My father still hasn't solved it and he's a self-proclaimed math genius. Many expletives were heard at random intervals throughout the day after it was received. Will not be touching it anytime soon as I am 99% sure this has accompanied him to the bathroom a couple of times.

I have convinced myself that he likes it.

                    The game pieces are nice and thick. My Dad loves to play Sudoku and this is similar. He's a retired math teacher and he seemed delighted with the puzzle. I do wish it came with a cover, but the puzzle does fit very nicely inside a quart sized ziplock bag.
