Aside from being a great form of recreation, puzzles may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. According to a study published in the January 23 issue of the Archives of Neurology, people who kept their brains occupied through activities like reading and playing puzzles throughout their lifetime had lower chances of developing brain plaques which in turn are tied to Alzheimer’s disease. Readers who want to start or continue the mind-stimulating hobby of playing puzzles may want to take a stab at “Number Cross Puzzles: Advanced Version Volume 1” by Rich Rollo.

Rollo’s book is a collection of several number cross puzzles that are designed to be both quick and challenging. Some of the puzzles can be completed in a matter of five minutes but each one will require users to employ their problem solving strategies and logical reasoning skills if they want to finish it. The answers are provided in separate pages so readers can check how well they finished the set.

Made for users aged eight and up, “Number Cross Puzzles: Advanced Version Volume 1” is an excellent addition to any puzzle hobbyist’s collection and a wonderful introduction to the exciting world of number cross puzzles.
