Puzzles based on Sam Loyd's famous Cyclopedia of Puzzles book

This section of the Quiz Plz website contains puzzles from Sam Loyd's book "Cyclopedia of 5000 Puzzles Tricks and Conundrums with Answers". Sam Loyd is well-known for his math puzzles.

Sam Loyd was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but spent most of his life in New York City. Sam Loyd was a very good chess player and once ranked 15th in the entire world. This was in spite of his attempts at making fancy movements on the board rather than attempting to go for the win. This also led him to create chess puzzles for others to solve. Sam Loyd was also interested in '15' puzzles and Tangram puzzles. The puzzles on this website are based on his Cyclopedia book of puzzles which was actually published by his son after his death in 1914.

Many of the puzzles from his book are classics and still appear in puzzle books today. The material in his books can be published just so long as the proper credit is given.
