A book of probability puzzles

I would like to train some recreational probability (Puzzles).

Does any of you know a good collection? Preferably with hints or answers.

I've been studying quite a bit of probability theory, but I don't suspect that will do me any real good.

Are you seeking something in particular? How would you differentiate these problems from, say, typical textbook problems on probability? – EuYu Nov 19 '12 at 15:15
Typical textbook problems on probability are, in my experience, created to grow accustomed to theory or theorems. What I want are brain teasers I guess made out of curiosity or to tease the brain. I know the difference is delicate, but I hope you get the point. – Henrik Nov 19 '12 at 21:21
That book looks absolutely perfect! Thanks! If anyone of you know any more I bet those 40 problems will run out at some point :) – Henrik Nov 20 '12 at 14:40
@Henrik in case you're still looking, here's a probability puzzle android app I made: play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=atorch.statspuzzles – Adrian May 28 '15 at 9:19

There is a book, Fifty Challenging Problems in Probability With Solutions by Frederick Mosteller which is quite a good read. You can look up this blog which has a good list of puzzles worked out.

I've corrected the title and added a link to the book you mentioned. Check to make sure I got the right book. – tomasz Nov 25 '12 at 0:43
That looks like a great suggestion! Thanks! – Henrik Nov 25 '12 at 12:17

definitely agree that Mosteller's book is excellent. In case you exhaust that, there's also quite a few problems in the recreational vein in: Challenging Mathematical Problems with Elementary Solutions, Volume I: Combinatorial Analysis and Probability Theory.

Have just bought this myself actually for some recreational amusement.

Possibly the ultimate compendium of problems is Grimmett and Stirzaker's volme:

If you've done all of those, you've pretty much done it all!

Good luck.
