Exquisite, award winning Scramble Squares® brain teaser puzzles for ages 4 to 104 are at least as popular with adults, seniors, teenagers and college students as they are with children. Although each Scramble Squares® puzzle has only nine 4” x 4” pieces, Scramble Squares® puzzles are Perhaps the World’s Most Challenging Puzzle™! At under $10.00 retail, Scramble Squares® puzzles make inexpensive, but highly entertaining and valued gifts for both men and women alike... for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, birthdays, get well, graduation, travel and holidays. Scramble Squares® puzzles are Easy To Play, But Hard To Solve!™ Over one hundred exquisite styles of colorful original art are available on nature, sports, history, culture, geography, science, technology, occupations, fantasy, gourmet hobbies and activities, and more new styles are added every six months. Store displays come complete with the unique Scramble Squares® “5-Minute Challenge™” in store free puzzle giveaway promotion!

The 11th Annual report of the Institute for Childhood Resources in San Francisco named Scramble Squares® puzzles as among "Dr. Toy's 10 Best Educational Products" of 2003 and also one of "Dr. Toy's 100 Best Children's Products of the Year" for the second consecutive year. At least as popular with adults, seniors and teenagers as they are with children, Scramble Squares® puzzles have also been selected by GAMES magazine, having a total circulation of 407,340, as one of the "100 BEST GAMES."

Current Scramble Squares® re, geography, science, technology, occupations, fantasy, gourmet, hobbies and activities. New styles are added approximately every six months. The suggested retail price for a Scramble Squares® puzzle is $7.95 each.

The Scramble Squares® slogan, "Easy To Play, But Hard To Solve!™," is very accurate. In the April , 2002 issue of Journal of Computing in Small Colleges, Central Plains Region, four mathematics researchers, Keith A. Brandt, Kevin R. Burger, Jason Downing and Stuart Kilzer of
the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics at Rockhurst University, a Jesuit university in Kansas City, Missouri, wrote in their paper on artificial intelligence (AI) computer programming, "The scramble squares puzzle is very complex. Indeed, there are 49 x 9! = 95,126,814,720 different arrangements of the nine pieces. This puzzle is actually an instance of what is known in AI as a constraint satisfaction problem (CSP)." Of the 95 billion different puzzle piece placement combinations, each Scramble Squares® has only one solution, and once a Scramble Squares® puzzle is solved, it is just as difficult to solve every other time it is played.

Each Scramble Squares® puzzle package includes a panel of fascinating factual information on the subject of the puzzle, as well as a trivia question and hidden answer, all packaged in a unique and handy heavy duty 101/2" long x 53/4" wide x 3/8" deep resealable vinyl travel pouch, which may be collected and stored easily in a standard 3-ring binder. The vinyl pouch is crystal clear, enabling the consumer to see the extraordinary beauty of the puzzles’ realistic original art, while achieving a very high amount of retail value per square foot of store space for the merchant.

In 1996, Learning magazine selected Scramble Squares® as The Best Educational Game in its "Product Picks for Math." Scramble Squares® teaches:
o Critical Thinking/Problem Solving Skills
o Patience
o Perseverance
o Statistical Probabilities
o Cooperative and Solitary Productivity

Scramble Squares® also helps maintain mental agility, sharpness and memory in seniors and adults, while providing hours of quiet and stimulating entertainment. The nine 4" square puzzle pieces of a Scramble Squares® puzzle are easy to hold and easy to see, yet Scramble Squares® puzzles are as challenging as a one thousand piece jigsaw puzzle, but without the little pieces to lose or the mess all over the table.
