Here's a puzzle from the back of the book (level F):

Puzzle 185

Look at the word below. It's actually Monrovian for "Mine's a large cheeseburger with extra relish." No, that's a lie. But the letters do have one strange property. What is it?


Answer: (yes, I had to look this one up...) when vertically reversed, they mean the same

Oh. So that's what it was. These things are always embarrassing because the answer is so obvious once you hear it! :-)

The MENSA book has arrived. It looks like a lot of fun. I will read it as soon as I can!

If I were younger -- these puzzles would be great. However, as an adult, they get a bit repetative. Once one knows the trick to solving one, one can solve all of the others of that type with out much more thought.
