Be prepared for a (reasonably) enjoyable experience

In 'Shape By Shape' there are 60 different cards, and on each one there is a pattern/shape- you then have to place the tiles on the square board to fit that shape, which is more challenging than it first appears. A clever concept, and makes for a fun puzzle that is both moderately challenging and addictive.
A friend recently introduced 'Shape By Shape' to me at a gathering- it was entertaining and I decided to purchase the game for myself. Upon the completion of each card, I then felt compelled to finish the next one, and the next one, and the next one... I finished the 60 cards in 4 separate sittings, each one taking less time as I continued to get used to how the shapes fitted together and improved my performance.
However, after I had charged through all of the cards I had no new puzzles complete and I soon got bored of the game. Although this unfortunately happens with many games and activities in life, not all other experiences come with a £11.99 price tag: if you want a fun game to play on your own, there are millions of phone/tablet apps and computer games that are free and don't take up space after you have extracted the entertainment from them.
