App Description

Welcome to the Sam Loyd App.

For over 135 years Sam Loyd has been considered by some as the premier puzzlist having created over 10,000 puzzles during his lifetime, many of which are regarded as the most ingenious ever invented.

Sam created his puzzles with a zest that has never been rivalled and would sell many as advertising premiums to organisations who would use them to sell anything from tea, life insurance to soap. Sam later passed his skills to his son who would carry on the family legacy after his fathers death in 1911. Sam Loyd junior not only kept his fathers work in the forefront of the public but also created many of his own puzzles until his own death in 1934.

The Sam Loyd Company was founded on Sam Loyd's principles and is responsible for promoting, educating, publishing, distributing and protecting Sam Loyd's work and legacy through a number of areas including its website www.samloyd.com
