A Puzzling Autumn

Given everything that’s happened so far this year, we figured that’s the next few months are going to form ‘A Puzzling Autumn’! So, we’re making the most of it and are celebrating everything weird and wonderful about puzzles through autumn 2020.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be diving into some puzzle history, cultural differences and how some of our favourite brainteasers have played important roles at critical times for societies and countries.
