Spencer is Puzzling
Your destination for, well... I guess just one puzzle game at the moment.
But there's plenty more on the way!
What is it?
An epic, humorous, and fiendishly clever at-home puzzle game all jam-packed into a custom deck of playing cards.
I cannot stress enough that there is nothing nefarious going on with this game. I don't even know why I'm telling you that. You know what? Forget I mentioned it.
Boost your brain powers on your quest to become officially, legally, a genius!* Submit all 52 correct answers to access the final challenge, “Puzzle 53” (dun dun duhhhhhn!).
Right now you're thinking, "That box looks like he wrote on it with a sharpie." But it's, like, more complicated than that.
Praise for Lost in the Shuffle
“If you like puzzles, I strongly recommend backing the Lost in the Shuffle Kickstarter. At a price point similar to that of many novelty playing cards, Lost in the Shuffle packs a tremendous amount of puzzling into a small package.”
Playtime: 3-5 hours
Play solo or team up with some friends.
Puzzles range in difficulty. Start easy and work your way up to puzzle professional.
Online features require an internet connected device
In addition to the deck of cards, the game employs some feature-filled online accompaniment: Score brain matter for correct answers. Collect enough brain matter to level up your brain and unlock helpful info and features.
Plus there's an extensive, progressive hint system.
More interesting tid-bits:
Approachable for novice solvers and builds up to greater challenges.
Some puzzles require multiple cards, some cards contain multiple puzzles!
Fully "re-giftable." No marking or damaging components required.
