There's easy puzzles, and there's puzzles for experts. They fit the needs of every person, and every skill level.

Puzzles are a favorite pastime of millions of people, young and old. There's numerous reasons for their popularity. Doing puzzles is fun. Some people just like the challenge of completing them, and moving on to even more complex and difficult puzzle solving levels. For others, it is a way to kill time, and to eliminate boredom. Still, others do puzzles to keep their mind sharp, or to learn new words.
