Plenty of crosswords here (over 200)! Unfortunately many questions are totally outdated and are repeated throughout the book.

It's nice to finally find a collection of puzzles that bring the challenge back to the game. When buying Sudoku books I usually have to flip through the "easy, medium, difficult" to see how many *real* challenges there are. Page after page of this book has challenged me.

This dictionary was published in 2005 and is not a New Version! Same old one I've been using for years. It was a great reference but is now seriously out of date with new words for the present time of 2014. The published date of this "new edition" is 2005 which means that the "third edition" is still the same dictionary I have been using for almost ten years. Unfortunately, I really need a new dictionary because mine is literally falling apart!! It is a great resource for doing crossword puzzles but, come on, it is OUT OF DATE. So when is the 2014-2015 version or the Fourth Edition going to the published?? Hopefully, soon.

Nice collection of puzzles, all with a thene. Perforated pages tear out neatly. All puzzles are medium to hard and very entertaining.

Check out my review for Blood of Gruumsh for an introduction to Dungeon Command. This is a good faction set; the miniatures are as detailed as the ones in Blood of Gruumsh. But I only have some minor complaints: why do undead have charisma as a characteristic? I found it strange and out of place for a ghost and a lich to have CHA (CHA is for leadership and social influence). And the box has places for the miniatures; some of these places are too tight so you have to use your nails to try and pry out some of the more detailed miniatures. I already have a couple of scratches on the base (does someone have a better way to get them out?).

I love sudoku and enjoy doing them on spiral bound large print books. The pages stay together and it is easy on the eyes.

Great Book! One man's life through chess in the highlighted retelling of the lives/careers of the World Champions he had the fortune to play against or study with. This books isn't so much about the game of chess as it is about the psychology and life around the game of chess. Inspiring tales and interesting anecdotes abound in this work. It is a pleasure to read.

The game was a Christmas gift and all other websites carried the same thing for $80-$100 or more. Overstock price was $$$$. You can't beat that especially at Christmas. The product arrived in a box that had a huge fist sizes hole punched in the side but the contents inside were umdamaged.

I remember playing the original Authors card game as a youth and the names of the authors and their books have stayed with me my whole life. I saw this game with American Authors, and I knew I wanted my kids to play it and absorb the information given on the cards. I also purchased a deck of Composers cards, and my family really enjoys this game.

I sent the playing card as a gift. My brother-in-law loves to play cards alone. He was very happy to get these wonderful cards. He called me and thanked me for the cards. He told me they were very nice.

Many educational toys and games can help children develop their listening skills. Children often have difficulty developing good listening skills, and by playing educational games with your children, you can bond with them and guide their learning. Some learning and educational toys encourage independent learning while still focusing on listening comprehension. By using a variety of educational games and toys available focused on listening skills, children can learn while having fun. Improve Listening Skills: Board games: Board games require kids to listen to a set of rules. To play, they must retain the rules they just heard. Instead of letting the kid read the rules, read the rules to them. Have them repeat the rules back. The practice of repeating and using the rules they've learned helps reinforce their ability to listen and remember. Video games: Age-appropriate educational video games work similarly to videos, music, and other auditory games. These games can be played alone or with others. Video games can be played on most game consoles, on computers, and through many websites. To complete game tasks, kids must listen to and remember instructions. Auditory games: Games such as "Simon Says" or "Bingo" require kids to listen in order to play. If they don't listen, they can't perform tasks correctly. Children like to win games, and games that focus on another player stating steps or have an audio component to state tasks and steps will encourage kids to improve their listening skills. Play these games with your child to help make the games more fun. Books: You can turn any children's book into a listening game. Read a book to a child and ask questions afterward. For every correct answer, provide some type of reward. If reading to a group, turn the questions into a group game. Many books focus solely on improving listening skills, such as riddle books which require kids to listen to and remember all details before they can solve the riddle. Other books include guessing games such as "20 Questions." To guess the answer, kids must remember the answers to the 20 questions. Videos and music: Many kids' movies, shows, and songs are actually full of games. These games require children to listen carefully to perform the desired task. Typically, these tasks include saying a certain phrase or doing a certain dance or exercise move. These tasks build upon each other to develop kids' ability to listen and remember what they've heard.
