      The puzzles are fun and a good way to pass time. There isn't much to write about these. They do not come with the solutions. I suppose they would quite simple to find online if you wanted to. But if you want to have the answers, they do not come with it.

      Extremely fast delivery, packaging was perfect.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Great Minds Puzzles - Set of 5:

            These were meant to present a mild challenge to my 21-year-old son who excels at math, physics and engineering. They did just that. It didn't take him long to solve them (it would have taken ME much longer) but they will provide entertainment for his friends, too.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Everything came right when they said it would and I had absolutely no problems with anything. Thank you!

              Comments about UncommonGoods Great Minds Puzzles - Set of 5:

              I got this as a stocking stuffer for my boyfriend. It came in this nice little box with a brief history of each puzzle and how it relates to the invention behind it. Because of the neat box, it didn't fit in the stocking.
              I wasn't quite sure how my boyfriend would like it, but we spent hours fiddling with the puzzles while barely saying a word to each other! Success. :)

              Service and delivery comments:

              Product came just in time for Christmas in perfect condition.
