Puzzles were invented in England in the 1760s, first appearing as wooden pieces put together to make maps of Europe. The popularity of the puzzle reached its peak during the Great Depression, when it transformed into a form of entertainment accessible to all budgets.
Today, puzzles can be easily found on the shelves of toy and hobby stores, in all shapes and sizes, with a wide variety of subjects, including pets and landscapes. In the field of smartphone games, intellectual puzzles still retain their appeal because they benefit our brain.
