In addition, our word search books are all large print but we also have an extra-large print word search book for the visually impaired.

3. Crossword Puzzle Books UK

Another very popular puzzle is Crosswords. Our crossword puzzle books are medium to hard difficulty and we have both cryptic crosswords and regular crossword books. If you are a beginner we recommend starting with a regular crossword.

4. Arrowword Books

Arrowwords are a popular variant of a crossword puzzle. However, in arrowwords, the clues are written inside the grid and the arrows indicate the position and direction of the answers. As such, the answers overlap more often than in a regular crossword which helps you solve the puzzle.

5. Sudoku Puzzle Books

Sudoku is perhaps the most famous number logic puzzle. In regular Sudoku, the objective is to fill a 9×9 grid with digits so that each column, each row, and 3×3 “regions” that compose the grid contain all of the digits from 1 to 9. Each puzzle only has one solution and is a great way to test your logic skill. In addition, there are also many popular Sudoku Variants that have different rules such as Jigsaw, Samurai, and Killer Sudoku. You should see our list of the best sudoku books here.

6. Codeword Books

Codewords (sometimes called Code Breakers) are like crosswords with no clues. However, each letter is replaced by a number and to solve the puzzle you must decipher which letter is represented by which number. In addition, our Codeword Puzzle Books provide a medium to hard challenge and are a popular choice for word-puzzle enthusiasts.

7. Kriss Kross Books

Kriss-Kross puzzles ( sometimes known as Word-Fit, Fill-In or Criss-Cross Puzzles) combine a love of words with a love of logic. Given a list of words of different lengths, you must fit them all into the grid.

8. Nonograms

Nonograms are another popular type of logic puzzle. They have other names such as Japanese Crosswords, Picross, Hanjie, or Griddlers. They are picture logic puzzles in which you must fill in or leave blank the grid according to numbers at the side of the grid to reveal a hidden picture.
