The Ultimate Sherlock Holmes Puzzle Book challenges quick-thinkers in a 3-pronged interactive adventure inspired by the stories of the great detective—with over 144 puzzles, including cryptograms, crosswords, ciphers, riddles, and logic games.
This full-immersion experience challenges you to solve these slightly re-imagined scenarios inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous Sherlock Holmes short stories:
• Interactive Challenge 1: Begins with a short introduction to the short story/crime, giving a summary of the main characters and plot. Following the introduction, 24 puzzles—including cryptograms, crosswords, logic conundrums, visual puzzles, ciphers, and word searches—are presented, for a grand total of 144puzzles.
• Interactive Challenge 2: Utilises maps that readers use to manoeuvre around the chapters, completing each puzzle not in a chronological order but, instead, relying on tips and clues from each solved puzzle to travel around the book, like a maze.
• Interactive Challenge 3: Drops hidden clues that accumulate into a final, overarching word search, which requires the completed clues from all 6 chapters.
