Numbers Puzzle

As part of my Puzzlemaths book, I have devised some puzzles of my own. One example is my Numbers Puzzle – shown below:

I originally made this puzzle image free, but for most students this was too difficult. Every word in the puzzle now has a visual clue, which hopefully makes the puzzle more accessible. What do think of this type of puzzle? Or perhaps a more important question: “What place do puzzles and/or games have in the Mathematics classroom?”
