Got into puzzles in 2003. Quickly learned that there was a business opportunity dealing with something I loved. Can't beat that. We invested slowly and with support of a lot of books, puzzle designers, and family, we slowly built the business. Its a work in progress that we try to improve everyday. We now offer over 300 puzzles or games of which over 120 are our own design
