9.The game used here is called “Disorder” (works on Windows 3.1 and Windows 95). It is currently available directly from the author at 3 Kaegill Lane, New Paltz, NY 12561 (price: $15.00). There are similar games available from other sources.

10.This article does not discuss a major component of skills developed by computer puzzle games, namely, pattern recognition skills, in particular, allowing the pieces to be rotated brings in a higher degree of challenge in recognizing patterns of the puzzle picture.

11.The present version of the game does not consider playing speed.

12.I have observed one eight-year-old acquire such intuition. However, not having tried the game on a large group of children, it is difficult to generalize. So I am guessing, somewhat conservatively, that by age 10 significant numbers of children would acquire such intuition.

13.Here, the particle theorist might see a discrete analog of a fiber bundle!
