2.0 out of 5 stars mensa 10 minutes a day crossword calendar Nov. 10 2010
should not necessarily trust the clues to be accurate. they are hard enough without errors in the clues. like word AFTER xxx and xxx should have been BEFORE. occassionally clues have been omitted at the last part of the list.
10 minutes? more like 10 hours for the sat/sun crosswords.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent way to start the day Nov. 5 2009

I work a Mensa puzzle every morning with my coffee and the combination is a delightful way to warm my brain up for the day ahead. The puzzles are challenging but not as difficult as the "Mensa" designation might indicate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Appropriate Title for Calendar Feb. 5 2010
By James C. Howells - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Calendar|Verified Purchase
I bought this at the beginning of the year and so far has lived up to it's name. The puzzles take me more than ten minutes to do but that's good. That means they are just a little harder than I'm used to. They aren't as hard as the New York Times crosswords and they aren't as simple as those Easy crossword books you buy at the supermarket checkout.

The only drawback to this calendar is that it's too small. I have pretty good eyesight and the questions are a little hard to read and the puzzle itself is hard to write in. The paper dimensions of each sheet are 5 1/4 inches by 4 1/2inches with the 15x15 box puzzle being a little more than 2 1/4 inches square. Thats really tight. I had to buy a extra fine roller ball pen to make the letters small enough to fit in the boxes.

One thing I do like is that you can get an extra online calendar for free when you buy this. I have a wordsearch puzzle emailed to me every morning,

I find the puzzles to be challenging enough, (and it's nice to be able to use a hint by looking on the back of the puzzle), but my biggest complaint is the size of the puzzle and the squares. If they had made each page bigger, the size of some of the other page a day calendars, (sudoku, for instance) they would be much better. Also this calendar is not available in the online version.
4.0 out of 5 stars Just right for waking brain gently Feb. 5 2010

These puzzles are not insultingly simple (furry animal that meows) but do not use clues such as "metric distance between uppermost points of Mont Blanc and Finster Aarhorn" or words that appear only in crossword puzzles. I seldom need to refer to the answers that are conveniently on the back of each page but when I do it is an opportunity to jolt the memory or learn a new word.
2.0 out of 5 stars Too easy Jan. 30 2011

Most of the puzzles were too easy. I didn't even bother with them after the first couple of weeks. The Saturday/Sunday ones were the only ones that could be somewhat challenging. I prefer to do the NY Times puzzles.
