Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) September 1, 2009
FRAME GAMES™, America's most popular word puzzles and a fun form of mental exercise, are now available in a daily page calendar for 2010.
The FRAME GAMES™ puzzles have grown in popularity yearly since they first appeared in print in 1991.
According to a recent article in USA Today, word puzzles are a great way to get kids ready for school and increase mental flexibility. Author and puzzle creator Terry Stickels says, "FRAME GAMES™ puzzles are now in great demand for both fun and keeping mentally fit. Now, schools are using them for mental warm-ups before class begins."
Stickels says the national Alzheimer's Association has adopted the puzzles as its ''puzzle of choice'' for dissemination in its local chapters.
FRAME GAMES™ are clever rebus word puzzles contained within small picture frames. An example would be: paratroubledise ... ''trouble in paradise.''
Since 2000, the puzzles have been a regular feature in USA WEEKEND magazine, which is carried by more than 600 newspapers with an estimated readership of 48 million people.
Stickels' four FRAME GAMES™ books and 7 previous calendars have sold more than 1,000,000 copies to date and remain strong sellers. His most recent effort, the 2010 FRAME GAMES™ boxed calendar, is available through USA WEEKEND magazine (http://www.usaweekend.com or 1-800-344-3872).
A native of Omaha, Neb., Stickels has authored or co-authored 30 books, numerous card decks, bookmarks and calendars of puzzles. His STICKELERS puzzle column is syndicated daily by King Features and appears in many of the largest newspapers in the U.S. and Canada. His popular Web site, TerryStickels.com, offers a sampling of his puzzles for the curious. He also writes for The Guardian newspaper in London.
