Solvers will be over the moon about this huge collection of all-new logic puzzles Star Battle is a growingly popular logic puzzle that, like sudoku, is simple to understand but offers a great deal of complexity and variety. In Star Battle, a 10x10 grid is divided into 10 irregular regions of different sizes. Each row, column, and region contain exactly two stars--and no stars in the grid may touch each other, even diagonally. This book contains a whopping 300 Star Battle puzzles, including short sections with one-star puzzles (as a warmup) and three-star puzzles (for an extra challenge). Author Jim Bumgardner also provides a helpful how-to-solve introduction, explaining the rules and some of the basic solving strategies.
