Lab Mice Puzzle - book review in French Women's Magazine

This summer, a dear friend was en vacance in France. She was thumbing through her favorite magazine: Femme Actuelle. She saw my name, then turned the page and of course said to herself - wait a minute! Or maybe she said Sacre Bleu!

My 2 books, Lab Mice Puzzles Volumes 1 & 2 are now being sold in France. And the wise editors of Femme Actuelle have heartily endorsed them.

Rush Hour: The Iphone App

About 10 years ago Binary Arts, now known as ThinkFun, released Rush Hour. Its 40 challenge puzzles swept the world. 3 more versions were released, each with 40 new challenges. If you bought them all, the 160 challenges cost about $30.

Recently ThinkFun released Rush Hour as an iphone app. The app has 2500 puzzles: 625 easy, 625 medium, 625 hard and 625 expert. I did all of the expert puzzles. It took a long time. Since the app costs $2.99 I definitely got my money's worth and then some!

This foreign film about mathematics is terrific. Reminds me of The Cube.

Can you name 5 films that feature mathematicians as the main characters?
