In this second volume of Hard Nuts to Crack, Sam Loyd has even more puzzles for you to solve.
For almost half a century, until his death in 1911, Sam Loyd was the undisputed puzzle king of the United States. He created thousands of puzzles including math, wordplay and cut-out shape puzzles that entertained people of all ages. His son Sam Loyd Junior also carried on the puzzling tradition, takin git even further than just publishing books. In 1917, Sam Loyd Junior worked with Thomas Edison, to bring some of his father’s puzzles to life in a series of silent movies. Edison’s idea was to create educational films that could be shown in the classroom by teachers.
Designed in the USA and printed in Australia. The Sam Loyd Company was founded by Sam Loyd in 1892 to produce his many inventions. When he passed away in 1911, it was inherited by his son, Sam Loyd Junior, who continued to run it until his own death in 1934. Today, that same company is responsible for promoting, educating, publishing, distributing and protecting the work and legacies of both Sam Loyd and Sam Loyd Junior.
