Kanoodle Portable Puzzle Game
Over 100 brainteasing puzzles!
Kanoodle is a mind-twisting solitaire puzzle game that is easy to understand, but difficult to solve.
Begin with the "easier" 2-D puzzles which challenge you to completely fill a 5x11 board using the twelve Tetris-like pieces. If you can master six levels (plus four bonus puzzles), move on to the brain-twisting 3-D puzzles where you need to create five-tiered pyramids using the same twelve puzzle pieces. Call us if you ever solve them all. But don't be surprised if we declare shenanigans.
Multiple levels of difficulty will make you wish you studied harder in school. Comes with a sturdy carrying case for travel or on-the-go play. Designed for ages 7+.

Tease your brain with 2-D and 3-D puzzles. It's good for you.
Kanoodle is a simple, yet challenging solitaire game. Comprised of just twelve pieces, you may think it's child's play. And you would be right if your child was related to Einstein.
Kanoodle can be played two ways: 2-D or 3-D.
- In the 2-D mode (pictured below, on the left), you are given a starting arrangement. Your goal is to fill the entire board with the remaining pieces.
- In the 3-D version (pictured below, on the right), you are also given a starting arrangement. However, your goal is to complete a five-level pyramid using the remaining pieces. It's dang hard!
Step 1: Choose from 100+ brainteasing puzzles
The Kanoodle case (which is also the game board) houses a 44-page booklet full of puzzles. To start Kanoodling (playing the game, not making out awkwardly!), simply choose a puzzle.
As you can see in the picture below, the puzzle diagram illustrates how you should arrange the pieces to start the game. The higher the difficulty, the fewer starting pieces you'll be given. Note: Solutions are not included in the booklet.
Step 2: Arrange the pieces according to the booklet
After you've chosen the puzzle, arrange the pieces on your board as shown in the booklet. The leftover pieces must then be placed on the board to completely fill it. This is when you start using your brain. Don't hurt yourself.
Step 3: Fill the board using the remaining pieces
As you can see in the picture below, we rocked a level 5 Kanoodle. Unfortunately, our stopwatch happened to break, so we don't have an official time for how long it took to solve.
Multi-level game will challenge (and haunt) you for years
There are six levels of difficulty in the 2-D mode of the game (plus four bonus puzzles) and three levels of difficulty in the 3-D pyramid mode (plus seven bonus puzzles). Solve them all and you can crown yourself a Kanoodle champion.
Every Kanoodle can be played in 2-D and 3-D mode.
Conquer the 2-D puzzles, then move on to the 3-D pyramids
Should you prove your intellectual enormity by solving all of the 2-D puzzles, you can then move on to the 3-D pyramid puzzles. Of course, you could jump right into the 3-D puzzles, but that's like jumping into the deep end without your water wings.
Similarly to 2-D mode, you begin by choosing a puzzle. Next, arrange the puzzle pieces as described in the puzzle booklet. Depending on the level of difficulty, you will be given fewer and fewer starting locations. Your goal is to use the remaining pieces to create a five-tier pyramid.
Because the pieces can be arranged horizontally or vertically "across" multiple tiers of the pyramid, these puzzles are much more challenging than the 2-D puzzles. Enjoy the headache!
