BrainBashers also has other items such as mazes, logic puzzles, Sudoku & other Japanese-type puzzles, stereograms, and lots of other fun stuff!

There is so much to do you could be here for days - take a look at the Site Map to see a list, or perhaps choose a random page instead.

Daily Puzzle

By changing the second letter of each word below, you can make another valid word.

Can you change each word such that the second letters will reveal an eleven-letter word when read downwards?
