Conundrums inspired by ancient Egypt that will challenge today’s solvers!
The Riddle of the Sphinx is one of the most famous riddles ever told and it took a Greek hero, Oedipus, to solve it. In the last 2,000 years the puzzle has been repeated countless times, but Ancient Egyptian culture positively brimmed with other mysteries and enigmas, too. This illustrated book features Egyptian-inspired brainteasers that will engage and engross contemporary puzzle fans.
