What is a Tarsia?
Tarsias are puzzles (a bit like dominoes or triominoes) where each piece contains a mix of questions and answers. Questions and answers have to be matched up, creating a finished puzzle.

What file-types are included?
TES doesn’t support Tarsia files, so these can’t be uploaded directly. Instead, you’ll be accessing PNG files (images) of the original puzzles. These are fully printable and playable.

What software is required if I want to make my own Tarsia?
Tarsias are created in a piece of free software by Hermitech Labs (no affiliation.) I’ve been making Tarsia for years - it’s a genuinely fantastic free resource, which you should consider downloading for yourself. It allows you to choose a blank puzzle-type, then input your own questions and answers. It then turns those into a puzzle for you.
(To find the page with the download on, Google ‘Hermitch Labs Tarsia’)
