FUTURE STUFF

  • 2-dimensional puzzles

    • QUARKS

    • LOMINOES

      For an illustrated ten-page introductory booklet about LOMINOES, look here,
      but for an encyclopedic book (131 pages) about LOMINOES, look here.

      NOTE: On pp. 129 and 131 of the LOMINOES book, the address listed as the link to Neil J. A. Sloane's Online Encyclopedia for Integer Sequences
      is obsolete and should be replaced by
      http://oeis.org/
      Be sure to watch (and hear) Tony Noe's spectacular 8.5 minute movie illustrating Sloane's Encyclopedia!
