Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

Logical Games and Puzzles is a great collection of math puzzles coded by David Lovelock, math professor at University of Arizona. The package includes such classroom classics as Factor Game, Hurkle, and Coin Swap, but also other interesting math puzzles and games I haven't come across before, such as Grocery Bingo, Tax Collector (my favorite game of the lot), and Beans. Although most of the games are brainteasers in a sense that there is only one correct solution to the puzzles, quite a few games are more like math-inspired board games that can be replayed infinitely. This collection includes all 3 games prof. Lovelock coded, and is highly recommended to kids aged 8-15 who enjoy math, as well as anyone who loves math puzzles in the same vein as Martin Gardner's column but less difficult. Two thumbs up!
