I struggle with giving my Dungeons & Dragons parties more than a decent story and roleplay mixed with combat. There are other things you can certainly do, though, such as give them puzzles. I love puzzles, but I always struggle to think of how to incorporate them into my games, let alone deciding what puzzles to include. Well, a new unofficial supplement on DMs Guild may become my new best friend. Steve “Jaspor” Orr and Bill Putrino have put together Puzzles, Predicaments, and Perplexities and I’m excited. I read one of the puzzles, and I am already thinking of how to incorporate it into my campaign.

Adventurers need much more than just brute force, magical powers, and nimble moves in order to survive the dangers that await them. A sharp mind is just as important as a sharp sword. When faced with a challenging puzzle, finding the solution can be the difference between victory and defeat.

Puzzles, Predicaments, and Perplexities contains a collection of logic puzzles, brain teasers, and encoded sequences intended to test the problem solving and deductive reasoning of characters and players. These puzzles are designed to be easily placed into any adventure with no additional work, yet also provide guidance on how Dungeon Masters can customize the details to best fit into their own campaigns.

If this interests you, you can grab Puzzles, Predicaments, and Perplexities on DMs Guild for $3.99 right now! You’ll want to hurry, though, as the price will jump up to $4.99 on June 11.
