ADD TO WISHLIST >

Introducing The Book of Puzzles!


Unlock a world of puzzles and enrich your gaming experience with the Book of Puzzles, your gateway to the most extensive collection of fully illustrated puzzles for RPGs worldwide.


What is the Book of Puzzles?


-- The Book of Puzzles is the Companion Guide to a massive bundle of 12 puzzle packs that were created over the course of many years. The puzzle packs are included in the download with this book. --


Not only do all packs come with hundreds of fully illustrated premade puzzles; some packs are also complete puzzle systems that allow you to create an infinite amount of puzzles with ease. Say goodbye to the hassle of constantly searching for puzzles. With this collection, you will have a treasure throve of puzzles for your campaigns to last you for a lifetime of GMing.


A Companion Guide you say?


The Book of Puzzles, ironically, doesn't contain any puzzles! Those are all in the extensive bundle of puzzle packs. (Check those out below!) What the book does do, is teach you how to:

•    Use the puzzle packs more effectively
•    Run more exciting puzzles in your game
•    Embed puzzles in your campaign world so they make sense
•    Challenge players and their characters
•    Encourage teamwork and involve everyone at the table
•    Avoid pitfalls like getting stuck
•    Combine puzzles with other challenges
•    Layer and link puzzle challenges
•    Lay out puzzles in a dungeon
•    Structure your campaign with puzzles

In short: with the Book of Puzzles as a Companion Guide, you will be able to do much more with the hundreds of puzzles that come with it. So what is in the bundle?


For Tabletops and Virtual Tabletops:


Featuring 12 separate puzzle packs, each pack comes complete with an instruction manual and printable pages for tabletop GMs. Virtual tabletop GMs will appreciate the included .jpg and .png images, compatible with most online platforms.

Illustrated puzzles with rich artwork that your players can manipulate immerses them in the game in a way other challenges can't. Few opportunities exist to infuse your campaign with visually stunning elements, and these puzzles are meticulously designed to add an abundance of flavor and depth to your game world.


For Beginners:


I've been GMing for over thirty years now. And designing puzzles well, and running them in an engaging way, is still one of the more challenging parts of being a game master. There are just more pitfalls with running puzzles than with other challenges.

The Book of Puzzles is your trusted guide to sidestepping those pitfalls. Pre-made puzzles in the bundle simplify running puzzle challenges, enabling you to embark on your GMing journey with confidence.


For Veterans:


Creating puzzles is time-consuming, and free time is a luxury, especially as we grow older. The Book of Puzzles offers uniquely illustrated challenges that revitalize your seasoned gaming group's experience. Surprise your players with fresh, stimulating puzzles that defy their expectations, all while saving you valuable time.


Highlights:


•    World's largest collection of illustrated puzzles for RPGs
•    Comprehensive companion guide with a ton of tips and suggestions
•    Easy to run, quick to set up
•    Works with any gaming system
•    Not dependant on the level of PCs
•    Visual immersion with puzzles pieces players can touch
•    Versatile and unique gaming experiences even the most seasoned players find refreshing

Regular price: $4.99

Format:

Angels and Demons Puzzles can be dropped into any campaign. How it works: The puzzles are easy to use. You drop a mosaic on the floor or against a wall, players must restore the tile pattern, and if they succeed they can continue their quest. You can add these puzzles to any scenario and create your own story around it. Or just use the following suggestion (which is how I playtested them). The eternal war between angels and demons leaves entire worlds in ruins as collateral damage. To protect our world from this disastrous fate ancient beings, long ago, have constructed temples dedicated to neutrality and balance. Each temple contains a magical mosaic where light and darkness exist in balance. The magic within in these mosaics creates a barrier that protects the world from the eterna...

Door Puzzles can change any door into a challenging puzzle at a moment’s notice. Simply place the puzzle image over a door and you are done. There are 20 premade puzzles in the pack and the means to quickly create infinite puzzles of various sizes yourself. I’ve designed this one to be quick and easy. How it works: When players come across a door puzzle they must find the key pieces and fill out the 7 by 7 inch square. But instead of giving players the exact amount of key pieces they need to solve this puzzle, they get more key pieces than they know what to do with. And this makes solving door puzzles a lot more difficult. Still, all key pieces have a distinctive symmetrical shape. By using this information players can reason out exactly where key pieces go. There’s a lot more logical r...

How it works There are nine basic puzzles. A single lock puzzle has three key pieces and is easy to solve. If you combine any number of these puzzles, they become increasingly difficult to solve. So the more basic puzzles you add, the higher the difficulty. Because you can use up to nine puzzles at a time, there are nine difficulty levels. Using all nine basic puzzles in conjunction is the most difficult. With more key pieces, there are multiple ways to fill a lock, but there is only one way to fill all locks at the same time.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
