Die & Timer

You can also activate an additional second timer for children or less experienced players. Adults have until the first timer goes off to complete the puzzle. Children are allowed to play until the second timer goes off.
If you are ever completely stumped by one of the puzzles, you can view the solution assistant. Simply scroll to the number corresponding to the number printed in the lower right corner of the puzzle board. Then select the corresponding task icon. The app will show you the solution to this task.
Solo Game Timer
If you’re playing alone, you can play against the clock. To do this, use the solo game timer in one of two ways:
5, 10, or 20 minutes: Your challenge is to try to solve as many puzzles as possible in 5, 10, or 20 minutes.
Stopwatch: Another solo game variant is to use the stopwatch to time how long it takes you to solve 5, 10, or 20 puzzles.
If you are stumped by a puzzle, you can skip it and draw a new puzzle board.
Record your results and try to set a new personal record each time!
