Halloween is almost upon us, so it’s time for spooky fun. In search of a festive activity that will challenge your brain? While we’re all spending more time at home, it’s the perfect time to give your mind a workout with some brainteasers.
Artist Gergely Dudás-Dudolf posts visual puzzles on his website and social media channels to share them with all, and he has several fun fall- and Halloween-themed puzzles you can try. He also posts the solutions, so you’ll never walk away frustrated.
Check out this puzzle that features a bunch of jack-o’-lanterns with a few bats thrown in for good measure. They all look really similar, but one of the pumpkins is missing its nose. Can you spot it? I’ve been staring at the image for a while, and I haven’t been able to find it!
It's almost Halloween!
One of these Jack-o'-lanterns DOESN'T HAVE A NOSE! Can You find it?

That’s not the only Halloween-themed hidden image-based puzzle Dudás has drawn up. Can you spot the ghost among the skeletons in this one?
I have to admit this one stumped me as well. Here’s the solution.
In fact, Dudás has created a whole book of Halloween-themed brain teasers entitled “Bear’s Spooky Book of Hidden Things.”
“It’s Halloween and Bear can’t wait to go trick-or-treating!” reads the book’s description. Bear is hoping his friends are handing out his favorite treat, honeycomb, and goes on Halloween adventure in search of it, from a pumpkin patch to a haunted house and a spooky forest. How cute!
“Bear’s Spooky Book of Hidden Things” is available on Amazon for $8.49.
Brainteasers have been around for a while, and some are now classics. The duck and bunny optical illusion shown below first appeared in a German magazine in 1892, and at the time, psychologist Joseph Jastrow declared that if you can see both a duck and a bunny in this image, that means you’re creative. I’m proud to say that I can definitely see both!
How interesting! Do you have a favorite brainteaser or puzzle?
