 Reidhead Randomness thoughts: 
The Scripture Puzzler book was a really fun addition to my primary on Sunday.  It is a great resource to have in our closet for an extra time filler if our sharing time/singing time runs short.  (In the front of the book, it says the individual pages may be photocopied for educational and personal use.)

I found that the puzzles were geared more for senior primary.  They have puzzles for many different topics:  Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon, and Doctrine & Covenants.  There are also sections of: references and hits, tips for solving, and an answer key.

Some of the puzzle types included in the sections are:  Word search, cross word, matching, word scramble, hidden message, letter drop, missing letter words, scripture find, code, letter clue, and word scramble.

Thank you, Cedar Fort publisher for the free copy of this book to write this review.  All opinions expressed are my own.
