Cool Puzzles

Check out this puzzle, just one of many you can find at the new version of Perplex City. Come on, check it out (you'll thank me later!). Root for yochanan1 on the leaderboard!

"Pictured is an amazing geometric figure: a rectangle partitioned into ten different squares... each square a different size (all have whole number lengths). Knowing only that the side length of the small, white square is 3 units, can you determine what the side length of the yellow square must be?"

Don't quite get what the site is, but you did send me a few gawkers at the logic test. Thanks! No tries though, not yet.

Well, all I can say is call up your local neighborhood cards & comics store, or maybe a video game store (like GameSpot) and ask them when they will have Perplex City Season 2 cards available. Then, go buy a pack or two, and, as the players say, you'll fall down the rabbit hole.
