Death By Numbers

24 February 2015 Update:  Help us make this a computer game!  Please visit our Kickstarter Project Page here for more information . . . 


Today we are introducing our new game – Death By Numbers.  It is a derivative of an old favorite of mine – Hangman.  Here is a png image of our first puzzle:


 Click on the image to get the printable, full-size puzzle

Game play is pretty straight forward.  Player chooses a number from the set of 16.  If the number is part of the sequence, it will be written in the appropriate box.  If the number is not part of the sequence, it will be X’ed out, and a hang man body part will be added to the gallows.  Player wins if the sequence is solved before the full hang man is drawn.  Player loses if the full hang man is drawn before the sequence is solved.

I hope the responses to this game are favorable.  If so, I’ll continue to generate more of them.  So, please let me know what you think – THANKS!!

Oh yea – the solution to this puzzle is:


23, 41, 77, 149, 293, 581

Sum Search 30 September 2014

September 30th, 2014 by Steven Pomeroy | 1 Comment | Filed in Math Puzzles


Today I am introducing a new math puzzle – Sum Search!

The object of the puzzle is to find as many instances where numbers add up to 100 as you can. Occurrences can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal. I will post the solution to the puzzle the day after I post the puzzle (or, at least I will try to).

Today’s puzzle has 14 solutions – that I know of! The image below can be clicked on to get a larger image that you can print.

Good luck!
