Aztec Puzzle – a sliding tiles puzzle variation

16/03/2011

In the year 1803 – Napolean was tyrannising the old world – Alexander von Humboldt was journying New-Spain. On a cold and windy morning he was standing on the waterside of the slowly disappearing Lake Texcoco, which had covered the bigger part of the Anahuac Valley a long time ago. It’s waters had enclosed the former Aztec capitol Tenochtitlán but now the expanse of water was shrinking every year leaving morass and badlands. Undergrowth was overgrowing the ruins of a long-forgotten empire …

In one of the ruins men of Humboldt’s expedition found some stones with something engraved to them. Unfortunately those stones were shuffled and none of the expedition’s members was able to rearrange them correctly – could you?

Try to solve the puzzle by moving the stones. You can only drag columns or rows where no stone is missing. It seems quite simple but appearences are deceptive, aren’t they?

Have fun with this brainteaser.

Poker Square Solitaire

8/07/2011

Poker Square Solitaire is a pack of patience games with the objective to build the best poker hands using just 25 cards from a card deck. Once all 25 cards are dealt, points are scored on hands formed horizontally or vertically.

Of course Poker Square Solitaire supports the English and the American point system: The English point system reflects the difficulty of getting the hands in the game; the American point system reflects the difficulty of getting the hands in actual poker.

Classic Poker Square:
Placing a card onto a space in a 5×5 grid. Placing cards are done one at a time and once a card is placed on the grid, it can no longer be moved.

Poker Shuffle:
Placing a card onto a space in a 5×5 grid. Placing cards are done one at a time and when a card is placed on the grid, it can still be moved until all 25 cards are set.

Serpent Poker Square:
Placing a card onto a space in a 5×5 grid where the card must touch another card horizontally or vertically. Placing cards are done one at a time and once a card is placed on the grid, it can no longer be moved.

Singing.Birds – a musical mnemonic training game

16/03/2011

Listen to the birds’ song and try to play it note for note without making a mistake. But it’s not that easy as songs become longer and longer. Unfortunately your brains capacity is limited. Can you remember every single note? What’s the maximum information you can memorize?

We offer you two levels of difficulty to train your memory. In the easy mode a single note is added to the song every round. That’s to easy for you? Try the hard mode where additionally to the increasing length every round a different song is played.

To relax from that hard mnemonic training you can use the birds to make music.

We hope you enjoy that little game.
