By far the most popular of logic puzzles are the grid logic puzzles, though there are many other
varieties including word logic, maze logic, grid-less, syllogisms, and the like.
What most of the 'logic' puzzles have in common is that the game involves some form of
deductive reasoning., or that which we start with the general ( a set of clues) and move to the particular
( a logical conclusion) just like a real doggone sleuth!!
Another form of logic puzzle, popular among puzzle enthusiasts and available in magazines dedicated to the subject, is a format in which the set-up to a scenario is given, as well as the object (for example, determine who brought what pet at a pet store , and on what day each pet was bought), some specific clues are given ("neither Mary nor Ray purchased the German Shepherd"), and then the reader fills out a matrix with the clues and attempts to deduce the solution.
Common logic puzzle magazines are derivatives of the logic grid puzzle called "table puzzles" that are deduced in the same manner , but lack the grid either because a grid would be too large, or because some other visual aid is provided. For example, a map of a town might be present in lieu of a grid in a puzzle about the location of different shops.
In this section we will explore some grid puzzle samples in a step-by-step tutorial.
