If you’re looking for a completely new puzzle experience, consider backing Mike and Tina’s Kickstarter. These circular puzzles are created using a deck of 52 cards. Place the cards in the right order in the circular holder, and your finished image will appear. It comes packed with hints to help you along, or the Math Challenge Deck for kids offers the added challenge of equations Ion the reverse side. If the equations are solved correctly, it will help the puzzler place the cards in the correct order.
Extra advantages to this new, innovative type of puzzling is that it’s easily portable and lightweight, as well as simple to keep track of your “pieces” in a car or plane. Some decks can be turned into regular playing card decks after use; others have images on each side for twice the fun.
Kickstarter is a new way for artists of all kinds to get funding for their projects. With Mike and Tina’s project, you can pledge as low as $1 to help them get their product to the market. If you pledge $15 or more, you could win special prizes for supporting them, such as souvenir puzzle cards or one of their first edition products. Watch their videos on their page to see how much fun their customers have had putting together their puzzles!
As of December 6, there are 2 weeks left to help them raise their goal of $100,000. So far 46 people have helped them raise a total of almost $6,200!
