Kate Jones Mechanical Puzzles

Puzzle Designers and Craftsmen

Kate Jones is a prolific puzzle designer/craftsman from the USA who has since 1979, created, developed and produced over 200 original “game puzzles” including geometric mosaic puzzles and games using permutations of edge-matching and polyform shapes and colours.

The company’s first product and the reason for starting the business was the game Quintillions. This set of mathematically related geometric shapes can be arranged in a huge number of different patterns and played as interesting strategy games besides. Its game/puzzle nature inspired the creation of dozens of other “recreational mathematics” models over the years.
