Visual puzzles increase our attention span and ability to notice small details, or in simpler words, our power of observation. And if we add a logical challenge into the mix, we have a perfect combination to train the mind and get our logical juices flowing.

Bright Side prepared 14 visual puzzles in which you’ll have to move a few matches in your head, but you can also do the exercise with real matches (without lighting them). To find out the correct answer, just tap on each picture. At the end of the article, you’ll find a bonus feature that will help you solve some of the puzzles too — but that also presents one last unsolved one.
