A Puzzle is a visual or physical game presenting a problem with only one correct solution.
The history of puzzles in the occidental culture probably started in 1760 as a way of teaching.
John Spilsbury, a British cartographer started to teach geography after he pasted a map onto a sheet of wood and sawed around the boundaries of each country. The resulting pieces become a great help to learn about different countries and continents.
The evolution of puzzles delivered as of today many different types, including digital puzzles on computers and even on mobile phones.
Puzzles can be cataloged into different categories:
Digital, construction, transport, tiling, words, mathematical, stick, lock, folding, mechanical, combination and more.
