Can anyone suggest anything for an adult that isn’t a phone app please?

Placemarking as I need some ideas for my dad's present!

A couple of years ago I got him this which seemed to go down well (and drove my mum up the wall as he read each one out loud!) www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1408801493/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?psc=1&tag=mumsnetforum-21&ie=UTF8

The only thing I have so far is Rubiks Race, which could be done solo but against the clock.

What about a smart game? I see them in kids toy shops but the age range is up to adult and they are quite fun for any age.

Kanoodle Genius and Kanoodle Extreme. Smart Games are good too.

Thanks. I’ve been browsing Amazon. I’d never heard of Kanoodle or Smart games.

I got my dad a set of Bletchley Park puzzle books.

My dad very much enjoyed this. It's quite scientific but also quite playful and he liked testing them all out on us. www.amazon.co.uk/101-Bets-You-Will-Always/dp/1509824006/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=101+bets+you+will+always+win&tag=mumsnetforum-21&ie=UTF8&qid=1512035855&sr=8-1
