Maybe Thanksgiving just spoiled me with 4 blissful days to play instead of thinking of work piling up in the office. In any event, that's exactly what I want to do this! I'm not yet in work mode. LetsTans Deluxe is an intriguing fit-the-shape puzzle game that lets you figure out where to put the pieces on the puzzle board using the tangram theme.

In explanation, the tangram is an old Chinese puzzle with seven cutouts called tans. These are then put together to form shapes. The objective of the game is to form a specific shape on the background "board" using all seven pieces which are not permitted to overlap. Some of the brain-teasing features of this meticulous tangram iPhone puzzle game app are as follows:

• 1,440 hand-crafted puzzles, and counting
• 10 addictive modes from easiest to hardest
• 7 different skins in Classic+ mode
• 50 colors in Junior and Silhouette modes
• Guest Player option: get your friend to play
• Need help? Use advanced hint system
• Time counter with pause option
• Reset All Puzzles option
• Game Center achievements and leaderboards
• No ads and no in-apps
• All new puzzles will be added for free

Right off the bat, I can tell you that this game is challenging and there are no shortage of puzzles to tickle your intelligence. Vividly colored, multi-shaped pieces capture your concentration as you find the exact spot in which to place each. Kids will also benefit from the mathematical/physics component to this game. There are many levels from which to choose, and if you get stuck on a play, you can always use the helpful hint option. Enjoy different skins to suit your mood, or invite a friend to play with the Guest Player option. The many features of LetsTans Deluxe makes it a winner and keeper on your device!

COOL CONCLUSION: "LetsTans Deluxe is intricate puzzle entertainment at its best with no shortage of brain teasers for the whole family!"
