Each book includes information regarding the origin and fundamentals of tangrams. The main portion of the book includes themed puzzles to solve. Those themes - the Wild West, Numbers, Sports, Christmas and so forth - can be seen below. Each full-page puzzle is first shown in silhouette (or expert mode), so that the puzzler can work to solve them. The solutions (or fan mode) are shown on the back side of the page.

The main section of the book is followed by a bonus section that includes cards for a tangram matching game. Each book's set of cards can be combined with those of the other books to create an expanding deck of cards. The cards are also arranged in the book such that they could be photocopied onto colored paper and used with the main and original Tangram Fury competitive puzzle game, or standalone for the Tangram Fury Matching Game.

Tangram Fury Puzzle Books FAQ

The following are answers to some questions about the Tangram Fury Puzzle Books.

Q: What type of books are these?
A: These are paperback books that are 9"x6" and have at least 130 pages each. These books are of the same high quality as other paperback books that can be bought online, such as on Amazon.com, or in brick-and-mortar stores, such as Barnes and Noble.

Q: Are there ebook versions of these available?
A: Absolutely! Each ebook has its own ordering page. From there, you can order the book in either paperback or ebook format.

Q: Are these the same ebooks that were available previously?
A: No, these are much better. The original ebooks were about 50 pages long. When an acceptable printing resource was found, and the decision was made to make Tangram Fury Puzzle Books available in paperback, it was decided that they needed to be longer and include both more puzzles and more information about tangrams. As a result, the books grew from about 50 pages to at least 130 pages in length, or nearly 3 times larger.

Q: Are the books in color?
A: That would be cool, but these are not picture books. The covers are in color, but as with typical puzzle books, such as for crossword, Sudoku or other types of puzzle books, the contents are black and white.

Q: Are these for beginners or advanced tangram puzzle enthusiasts?
A: That's hard to say because what's hard for me, might be easy for you. I'd have to say that they are many tangrams in each book, all of which range in complexity. Usually, animals and people seem to be easier to solve because there are heads, arms, or legs that stick out while more solid images, such as buildings, are harder to solve because there aren't as many "gimme pieces" on them. These books have all types of images, but, given the themes, they tend to include a lot of people and animals.

Q: What's in the books?
A: The quickest answer is, "Words and pictures," but that doesn't help much, does it? There is text in the beginning section that explains what tangrams are, how to build them, famous people who have tinkered with them over the years and other info that I think is cool or interesting. One section highlights how to build a tangram square quickly. (My record is 5 seconds.) The next section is the main section. It has many full-page puzzles to solve. Each puzzle is shown on a single right-hand page. When you turn the page, its solution is on the left-hand page and a new puzzle to solve is on the right-hand page.

Q: What's the bonus section?
A: Each book includes a bonus section of cards for a Tangram Fury Matching Game. The bonus section in each book includes a dozen tangram cards. The cards are printed such that they can be cut directly from the book (but, you wouldn't really want to cut up the book, would you?). They can also be photocopied and then cut out and played as a matching game. All of the cards in each of the games can be added together to make a very large deck. The cards can also be copied onto colored paper in a way that they match the cards in the Tangram Fury Game and can be added to that game for added fun.

Q: Will there be more Tangram Fury Puzzle Books in the future?
A: I believe that's a certainty. Tangrams have so many possibilities for images and themes, that it's hard to stop creating more. For example, it would be fun to put together a book that is a tribute to Disney characters. (Not sure on copyright issues for that...) Or, ones that are dedicated to Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, or other famous books or shows. Or, there could be one dedicated to high school bands, or any of a number of other themes.

Q: What's the most unique book idea you've had?
A: I think it would be fun and cool to create individualized books for people to order. Even if it's just a matter of altering the title so people can make books for themselves, their family, or their friends. The title could be something like, "Tangram Fury Puzzle Book for Aunt Marge," (if, of course, you have an Aunt Marge you want to give a book to...). The other possibility is to actually customize the puzzles inside the book, but that would take a lot of effort which would likely raise the cost beyond what people would want to pay. The customized covers and title pages are much more doable. (I'd be interested in knowing if people are interested in this.)

NOTE: If you'd like to order multiple books, click the "Buy Now" button of the first. This will take you to the ordering page, which should already be populated for ordering 1 book. Leaving that alone, click the "Back" button in your browser. This will take you back to this page for selecting an additional book. Click the "Buy Now" button for the next book you'd like to order. When you've selected your final book through its "Buy Now" button, follow the options on the CreateSpace site for finalizing your order. Doing this will combine the shipping charges for the books, which will overall lower shipping charge per book. (The shipping charge may cost more overall, but it will cost less per book than if the books were ordered separately.)

These Tangram Books contain tangrams that have common themes. The vast majority of these images have been created specifically for the Tangram Packs and Books on this site. Every single puzzle in ALL of the Books can be produced with the exact same 7 tans (puzzle pieces) of a traditional tangram.
