Give it Forward: Stenzzles


Ever work on a puzzle and think that you’d like to frame it? That is sort of what Stenzzles are all about. Stenzzles are described as artistic layering puzzles. Players get 8 Stenzzles cards that they have to layer in such a way as to match 8 different patterns. Each Stenzzles has a different color and all the colors need to be seen in the final solution. I like puzzles but this one I found difficult and frustrating. I guess I am more logical and methodical in my puzzle solving and less artistic.

To play, select one of 8 challenges and flip, rotate and layer the cards until your stack exactly matches the challenge image. There are eight cards to contend with and so you not only have to figure out what order they are layered but also what orientation they have to be placed in in order to look correct.


There are a few different Stenzzles versions: Sports, Tropical and Dogs. So, depending upon your interest you get a challenging game and something that you can display once you are finished solving the puzzle.

The game comes with 8 Stenzzles Cards, 1 Black Background card, 1 Puzzles and Solutions Booklet (with 8 Puzzles) and 1 Puzzle Stand to display your Stenzzles creation.

A nice game for any puzzle fan who likes to display their finished work.

About the Give it Forward Project on
For the past three years we have saved money to go on a family shopping trip so that we could make donations to Christmas is for Kids. Each year we try to save more and do things bigger. This year many companies that I’ve done reviews with have provided me with toys to review but also toys to give away as well. On December 1, 2012 from 10:00am – 2:00pm Achin’s Garage is sponsoring a Toy Drive of NEW unwrapped toys for kids aged newborn to 18 years old at Attleboro Farms to collect toys for Christmas is for Kids. We’ll be making a huge donation thanks to so many great sponsors.

Disclosure: I was provided with four ThinkFun games. Two to review and two to donate. Opinions about the toys are 100% my own.
