In July of 2019 I updated the pages to use SVG graphics instead
of my original pages (from 2012) using GIF files. This change allows
the solutions to be rendered on any screen size at full resolution, no
matter the zoom level. While they do take up a bit more space than the
GIF files, I think the sharpness of having much higher resolutions
are well worth it.
- (UPDATED: October, 2018) Did you use a computer program to solve
all the puzzles?
original web pages with just Kanoodle Solutions: No - I
solved all of them using
just the space between my ears. The harder ones took
quite a bit of work.
UPDATE: My brother developed a program to solve
the 2D puzzles in the summer of 2018. Around 50 percent of the
LONPOS 505® Level 8 puzzles
were computer solved. I still had to solve all the 505 pyramid
- (UPDATED: JULY, 2019) Does each puzzle only have one unique solution?
No. I've found that many of the
puzzles have multiple solutions. Though, most solutions
I've found are quite similar with perhaps 2-3 pieces in
Update: with my update of this
page in 2019 I've re-solved all listed 2D puzzles with
a computer program that lists all solutions. For all
of the setups that have multiple solutions, that number has
been listed in the graphic. If I get enough requests, I MAY
post all solutions to each setup. Some of the setups have lots
of solutions. (LONPOS 505 Level 8 #444 has 44 different solutions.)
- Why did you set up this page?
Probably for the same reason you
found it. I searched the internet for "Kanoodle
Solutions" because I was frustrated that I couldn't
solve a couple of the puzzles and I figured SOMEBODY
must have a cheat available on-line. When I couldn't
find any cheats, the idea of creating this page started
rolling around in my head. Of course, before I could
set up the page I had to solve the remaining
- Are you a savant or something? How did you figure
Ha! Far from it. A few of the
puzzles (especially the quiz levels) took many, many
hours of trial and error. "Brute Force" if you will.
Not very efficient. But eventually I got them.
- Why don't you have solutions to ALL 101 of the
The level 1-3 puzzles can typically
be quickly solved by even very young children. If you are
having trouble with one of those you may want to double check
the setup from the instruction booklet.
- What does this puzzle have to do with The Green Bay
Packers Football Team?
Absolutely nothing. I wasn't
feeling particularly creative when I picked my domain
name and this was the first one that came to mind that
was available and easy for me to remember. I had
originally intended this domain to simply be a personal
place to play with some HTML coding. But since posting
the Kanoodle™ pages I've had far more traffic
than I could have ever expected.
- (May, 2013) The "who's visiting" page doesn't match
up with the page counter on the Kanoodle™ Cheats
I only update that data occasionally.
The update takes me a bit of effort
(about 10 minutes) because it's done manually, not
automatically calculated on the server.
- (July, 2013) Some of the 3D puzzles are impossible to
construct in the way that you have shown.
I have carefully double checked
all of my solutions, including the 3D ones. Note that
on some of the 3D puzzles you may have to temporarily
shift some pieces around slightly to make room as you
place other pieces.
- (UPDATED: November, 2019) Are people all over the world really
visiting this site and playing Kanoodle?
I have no information about the
international sales of the Kanoodle™ game. I
think that many of the international hits are
actually from web crawlers (spiders) that just happened
to have stumbled across my pages. I think that outside
the U.S., this game is generally sold under the LONPOS®
name. I can only say for absolute certain that I have
had visitors from the U.S.A., Canada, Great Britain,
Australia, Mexico, Poland and Austria because I have gotten e-mail from
people in those countries. If anyone wants to send me
an e-mail (in English if you can) verifying that
they've visited from another country I will update this
