If my calculations are correct, then this is in fact Monday. Seems like a good time to have a cup of coffee and wake up the old brain with some frame games. If you aren’t familiar, let me explain.
Growing up we always got a Sunday paper. The Sunday paper was exciting because it included the advertisements for local stores and upcoming sales. It also included the USA Today Weekend magazine, which I never really cared about, but my mom was always a believer of logic puzzles, critical thinking, using your brain and other such nonsense. Anyways, this magazine always included a workbook page with puzzles at the end, similar to most magazines having a crossword puzzle at the back. Each week there were four new ‘Frame Games’ to be solved. Each week she would look at the puzzles and proclaim that she knew them all (which she always did) and then pass it around to my brother, my dad, and I to look at and see if we could each figure them out too. We were usually lucky to get one or two each, but yet each Sunday we all played along in the hopes of catching up with her ridiculously logical brain.
Let me show you an example.
Sometimes the word is written in a certain direction or the size and placement is trying to give you a clue as well.
