In Cortex, 2 to 6 players will compete against each other, quickly guessing the answers to 8 types of challenges that develop the different functions of the human brain. They will receive puzzle pieces for correct answers and the first person to get all 4 pieces and complete their brain picture will be the winner! Cortex will allow you to warm up both hemispheres of your brain and flex it properly. This is a great family game that will also work well at parties, meetings or while traveling! What is it about? 1. The youngest player flips the top card from the pile, placing it so that everyone can read it. 2. When a player determines he knows the answer, he immediately covers the card with his hand and shouts an answer! 3. When he removes his hand, you check if he was right and if so, he gets this (face down) card in front of him. If a player collects 2 cards with the same back, he exchanges them for one of the 4 puzzle pieces. 4. If he was wrong, shuffle the card into the pile and start the next round. A player who has just made a mistake cannot answer for the next round! Eight kinds of challenges to stimulate your senses! Memory - cover the card with your hand and list 5 things you noticed on it. Color - cover the card with your hand and specify in which case the word describing the color is written is in its own color. Maze - cover the card with your hand and say in which corner the exit from the maze is! Coordination - cover the card with one hand, and touch the indicated part of the body with the appropriate finger! Couple - cover the card with your hand and say which of the many pictures shown on it occurred twice! Frequency - cover this the card and say which element appears on it the most! Reasoning - cover the card with your hand and say which shape fits the empty space! Challenge - player, who solved the previous challenge must close his eyes and relying only on the sense of touch to recognize the texture of one of the special cards imitating the saw surface bin, moss, leather or other materials.

Annie Fuller, a young boardinghouse housekeeper and reluctant clairvoyant, met the kind, older Chinese servant Mr. Wong during her investigations into a mysterious death in Maids of Misfortune, the first book in Locke's Victorian San Francisco Mystery series. In "Mr. Wong Rights a Wrong", Annie Fuller once again turns to Mr. Wong for help in solving a puzzle that could have life or death consequences. Like her other short stories, "Dandy Detects" and "The Misses Moffet Mend a Marriage", this story offers another glimpse into Annie Fuller's world of 1880 San Francisco. 1. Language: English.

A ravaged wood, a man in uniform long dead - this is not a World War One battlefield but Wanwood House, a pharmaceutical research centre. Peter Pascoe attends his grandmother’s funeral, and scattering her ashes leads him, too, into war-torn woods in search of his great-grandfather, who fought and died in Passchendaele. Seeing the wood for the trees is the problem for Andy Dalziel when he finds himself fancying an animal rights activist depite her possible complicity in a murderous assault and her appalling taste in whisky. A mind-bending puzzle leading us on the wild side of the pastoral. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Keeble. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/022358/bk_adbl_022358_sample.mp3.

In the 1960s, on the heels of the Brown vs. Board of Education decision and in the midst of the growing Civil Rights Movement, Ku Klux Klan activity boomed, reaching an intensity not seen since the 1920s, when the KKK boasted over 4 million members. Most surprisingly, the state with the largest Klan membership-more than the rest of the South combined-was North Carolina, a supposed bastion of southern-style progressivism. Klansville, U.S.A. is the first substantial history of the civil rights-era KKK's astounding rise and fall, focusing on the under-explored case of the United Klans of America (UKA) in North Carolina. Why the UKA flourished in the Tar Heel state presents a fascinating puzzle and a window into the complex appeal of the Klan as a whole. Drawing on a range of new archival sources and interviews with Klan members, including state and national leaders, the book uncovers the complex logic of KKK activity. David Cunningham demonstrates that the Klan organized most successfully where whites perceived civil rights reforms to be a significant threat to their status, where mainstream outlets for segregationist resistance were lacking, and where the policing of the Klan's activities was lax. Moreover, by connecting the Klan to the more mainstream segregationist and anti-communist groups across the South, Cunningham provides valuable insight into southern conservatism, its resistance to civil rights, and the region's subsequent dramatic shift to the Republican Party. Klansville, U.S.A. illuminates a period of Klan history that has been largely ignored, shedding new light on organized racism and on how political extremism can intersect with mainstream institutions and ideals. 1.

Thomas Jefferson praised Tom Paine as the greatest political writer of the age. The author of Common Sense and Rights of Man, Paine helped make revolutions in America and France. But beyond his inspiring calls to action, Paine harbored a deeper political vision for his adopted country. It was embodied in an architectural project that he spent decades planning: an iron bridge to span the Schuylkill River at Philadelphia. The bridge was Paine's answer to the political puzzle of the new nation: how to sustain a republic as large and geographically fragmented as the United States. Among its patrons were other giants of the time, including Benjamin Franklin and Edmund Burke, Paine's ideological opponent. Set against the background of the American Revolution, the story of his iron bridge reveals a new Tom Paine and connects this revolutionary to the vast program of internal improvements that soon transformed America. 1.
