This game comes with a simple set of 9 pieces, a 3x3 grid to put them on, and a booklet of puzzles to solve with those 9 pieces. The puzzles give logical constraints on where the pieces go, and there's a good ramp-up of difficulty.
It's probably worth comparing this game to Grid Works, which was much more compact and much more slickly produced. In play, the two games are, well, nearly identical, the only difference being in the shapes and colors used. The puzzles are overall a bit easier than those in Grid Works, but otherwise there's no difference, so go ahead and read my review there.
