Tangrams are ancient Chinese, ingenious puzzles. They are deceptively simple in design, yet can stump even the most seasoned of puzzlers. Then, the light clicks on and the answer suddenly seems so obvious. It’s amazing that so many puzzles can be solved with the exact same 7 shapes. Beyond the Tangram: From the inventor of Tangram Fury, comes a Tangram Fury Christmas Activity Book. This book is chalk full of Christmas-themed tangrams to solve, but takes them a step further arranging them within fun activities. Just like the other books in the Tangram Fury puzzle series, it has a series of puzzles arranged to show a silhouetted puzzle, followed by its solution. Then it additional activities such as a tangram matching game, tangram Christmas ornaments to design and decorate, tangram Christmas paradoxes to solve, a couple Daily Tangram puzzles, and more. Cut the activities directly out of the book, or photocopy them on sturdy, colored paper for enhanced play. Following a brief introduction to tangrams, the main portion of the book provides challenging or whimsical Christmas-theme puzzles to solve, and their solutions, and the activities. This is followed by tidbits and trivia about tangrams and some famous people who have tinkered with tangrams over the years. (Can you solve the unsolvable “Mad Hatter” tangram created by Lewis Carroll?) It also provides some tips and suggestions for those with a competitive streak. The text sections of the books are largely the same in all books in the series, but the heart of the book - the part that includes the tangram puzzles - remains unique. Whatever time of year it is, 'tis the season for some Tangram fun!
Doug Nufer came across tangrams by accident. He was looking up a word in the dictionary and happened upon a diagram of the puzzle. Curious to know what puzzle was so famous that it was in the dictionary, he started to read up on them. Learning that tangrams can form animals, people, buildings, and dozens of other topics, the idea of creating a competitive tangram game hit him. This resulted in the game Tangram Fury. By then, the puzzle bug had fully hit him. He spent his spare time creating new tangram puzzles covering many themes. To date, he has created 800+ tangram puzzles, a dozen themed tangram packs, and even more tangram books. He created most of the tangrams he uses in his books.
