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 the puzzle board using the Tetris-like pieces. If you can master the 2-D noodlers, move on to the brain-twisting 3-D puzzles where you need to create five-tiered pyramids using the same set of 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.

Choose from Standard and Genius editions.

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 (only seven in the "Genius" edition), 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 multi-level pyramid using the remaining pieces. It's dang hard!

Kanoodle Puzzle Game can be played in 2-D or 3-D mode.
Tease your brain with tons of challenging puzzles.

Step 1: Choose from 100+ brainteasing puzzles

The Kanoodle case, which is also the game board, houses a booklet full of puzzles. To start Kanoodling (playing the game, not making out awkwardly), simply select a puzzle from the booklet.

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.

Kanoodle Step 1: Choose a Puzzle
To begin a Kanoodle, choose a puzzle from the puzzle 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.

Once your puzzle has been chosen, set up the board according to the puzzle booklet.
Arrange the pieces on the board based on the diagram in the puzzle booklet.

Step 3: Fill the board using the remaining pieces

As you can see in the picture below, we rocked a level 2 Kanoodle. If we had chosen a much more difficult puzzle, we'd probably still be working on it.

Once the board is setup, solve the puzzle!
Fill the board completely using the remaining pieces in order to solve the Kanoodle.

Multi-level game will challenge (and haunt) you for years

Each edition of Kanoodle features multiple levels of difficulty in both the 2-D and 3-D modes of gameplay. They also include bonus levels for you true puzzling sadists. Solve them all and you can crown yourself a Kanoodle champion.

Both editions of Kanoodle can be played in 2-D and 3-D mode.

Both the 2-D and 3-D puzzles feature multiple levels of difficulty.
Master multiple levels of difficulty.

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 3-D mode 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!

Once you have solved all of the 2-D puzzles, move on to the more challenging 3-D puzzles.
Upon mastery of the 2-D puzzles, challenge yourself to the uber-hard 3-D pyramid puzzles.

Choose from Standard and Genius editions

Want to really flex those brain muscles? Take your puzzling skills to the next level with the Kanoodle Genius, an advanced version of the original Kanoodle. This nogin-twisting game boasts over 200 puzzles in both 2D and 3D formats.

With the Kanoodle Genius, the 2D puzzles must be assembled on an octagon-like playing surface while the three dimensional varieties take place on a triangular board. Start at the challenging super-pro level and work your way up to becoming a Kanoodle genius!
