More brain teasers and the "memory palace".

Mind Games 4
A couple of puzzlers to test logic, language and lateral thinking skills - plus a befuddling optical illusion, the "checkershadow".

We do some code-breaking – and feel moved by a mind-bending optical illusion.

Mind Games 9
A lone cowboy rides into town, and we get on first-name terms with some friendly abstract shapes.

We try for an “Aha!” moment and practise our mind-reading skills. 

Mind Games 12
Hone your detective skills to solve the Case of the Stolen Pressies, and unscramble some word salads, with festive results.

Help a frustrated clubber crack the code, and see how money grows on trees.
