People are often daunted by the simple task of solving a riddle or a puzzle. Akram claims that puzzles fall into a few categories. If you can work out what the puzzle is doing, you can solve it. For example, many puzzles give too much information, to confuse you. Others have a minor but cleveraly camoflaged contradiction. This talk will present 8 or 9 such characteristics and a lot of puzzles to prove that they can be simpler to solve.
