Sam Loyd lived in Elizabeth, N.J., USA in the 1870's where he was a popular engraver and printer. During his time there he engraved and published some of his greatest puzzle cards that were enjoyed by young and old alike and started his journey toward becoming the greatest puzzle creator of all time. The Sam Loyd Company have created this very special collection of his puzzle cards from Elizabeth N.J. just the way he drew, engraved and published them over 100 years ago.
This collection includes:
- The Original Chinese Pony Puzzle
- Comical Transformations
- Whitington and his Cat
- The Historical Puzzle No 4
- Our Latest and Best Puzzle
- Puzzle of Jack and the Beanstalk
- Chinese Puzzle Tit Tat Toe
- Questions of the Sphinx
- Puzzle of the Death of Bluebeard
- Uncle Sams Spelling Match
- Puzzle of the Trick Mules
The cardboard that Sam Loyd used for his puzzle cards was specially selected by him. He wanted to ensure that it had the right balance of texture and thickness, to not only enhance his graphics, but to also give you the best in-hand embellishment when holding the card to solve it.
The Sam Loyd Company has been able to recreate that same cardboard, as first used by Sam Loyd, using original sources. The cardboard is exclusively manufactured for our use and goes by the product code No.1868, in tribute to the release of the very first puzzle card.
To ensure that you experience the puzzle cards just the way Sam Loyd intended you to, be sure to buy only cards created by The Sam Loyd Company. Each carry the Sam Loyd logo, which is a registered trademark and your guarantee of the highest quality.
