Gamepuzzles® are Kate's own original creations that can be played both as competitive games for two or more people, and as puzzles for one player alone. Kate has been designing them since 1979. The sets usually consist of geometrically shaped tiles. The numbers of ways you can fit them together may be in the thousands. It's a new adventure every time you play with them. The figures and game rules are illustrated in each set's handbook.

The pieces are cut from acrylic sheets with our laser, using a computer program to guide the table, then hand-finished. Kate also writes and illustrates the rule books.  It sums up as a celebration of mind ... the joy of thinking ... playable art ... truth and beauty. 

Each gamepuzzle set contains a bit of cosmic truth, nourishing the mind's need to recognize system and structure. In symmetry and order the mind finds its fullest sense of its own efficacy and of beauty.There's a great sense of freedom in knowing there's more than one right answer and in having many options. Minds that exercise regularly with puzzles stay sharp longer, and play helps reduce the stresses of life. Play on!
