I'm thinking about a set up where each player has a game board, and a holder to keep the solution upright and private. Each player makes a separate puzzle, Then players take turns calling numbers to figure out their puzzle. When a player is certain about their solution, they call, perhaps an accusation... like in Clue? And they tally points and keep acting as hider until the other seeker can't beat their score for that round. I believe it would work, but requires you own two copies of the game. Any thoughts? If you try it, please let me know how it worked out.

Sounds like you have a recipe for a new game there, man (not just a variant). I would look into this further if I were you.

Yea, you're basically just interrupting the flow of a game to interject another one, so essentially you're playing two games at once rather than one after the other. Looks pretty straight forward.

I thought about that, two games played simultaneously, but if you think about it, battleship also has two puzzles played concurrently, each player trying to solve in the fewest turns. Anyone here own two copies of Black Box?

Sounds like a good concept. You should make a rule that you either call a number or make a guess on your turn. So if you opponent has 'figured out' your puzzle before you figured out theirs, you can still take a guess at the solution to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

If anyone is in Chandler, Arizona who has a copy of blackbox, I'd be up for a try. I have one copy.
