Recently purchased his puzzle collection book Amazing ‘Aha’ Puzzles, which I’m very much enjoying and highly recommend if you’re looking for more brain teasers that spur creativity and “outside of the box” thinking. You can visit his website www.ahapuzzles.com here.

    Wouldn’t it be the same as the last image only flipped horizontal?

    I would guess that it would be a mirror image of the last stick in the picture.

    It would be the same image (copy).

    I’m guessing that it would be a copy of the first one. If you look closely, the orange lines around the borders of the matchstick form letters. The first is a capital H, then U, then lowercase N, then C.


    the first one repeated would make the completed word (appropriately), HuncH.

    Wow, I was right.


    And I didn’t look at the answer beforehand on the book’s website, I promise.
