You have been on the Internet for hours; scrolling mindlessly, going through various newsfeeds and articles. Don’t you think it is about time to give your brain a bit of a jolt to wake it from this slumber-fest that you have committed it to? We have for you a puzzle from the Deadly Skills Puzzle and Activity Book!
The Deadly Skills Puzzle and Activity Book has been written by a retired Navy SEAL Clint Emerson. Clint has written the book to help people put their observational and analytical skills to use. If the name Clint Emerson sounds familiar, it is because he is also the author of the New York Times bestseller “100 Deadly Skills”.
This particular book, Deadly Skills Puzzle and Activity Book, has been designed to do much more than just keep your brain sharp and ready for action. Clint Emerson has created these puzzles specifically for the veterans and military personnel. The list of the audience of this book include the ones that are suffering from traumatic brain injuries and PTSD. It is meant as a ‘tool for coping, recover, and overall enhancement of brain health.’
That doesn’t mean that others cannot benefit from it. In fact, the 181 mind-benders and games rely on real-world scenarios that athletes, first responders, and military personnel might encounter. You will find word searches and crosswords along with insane-looking pyramids of digits that you will have to make sense of and thus, wake your brain up from the slumber.
For this particular puzzle, the directions are as follows, ‘Every tree has one tent either above, below, or beside it. No tent can be in a square touching another tent (even diagonally). The numbers beside each row and column tell you how many tents are in that row or column.’
