Puzzle sets marked with a padlock icon are sets available for purchase. Simply tap the desired set number button. If you have purchased the set, it will appear starting at puzzle number 1 within the chosen puzzle set. If you have not purchased the puzzle set, a confirmation screen will appear that will allow you to browse the puzzle sets that are available for purchase. (Please see PURCHASING PUZZLES below.)
