      Comments about UncommonGoods Aristotle's Number Puzzle:

      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.

          Way too difficult for my very bright 12 year old granddaughter. Her also very bright father tried it for about 2 hours and still only had it 2/3 figured out. Doubt that it will be used again.

            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.

                Gift for my grandson who is a university student. The puzzle is well made, small enough to carry while traveling, and interesting. Packaging is excellent. Delivery was even sooner than expected. In other words, your products are new and of good quality and your service is impeccable. Furthermore, my grandson loved it.
