Question: Someone recently told me that they had spotted me in jigsaw puzzle about 10 years ago of people running the NYC Marathon. I have been looking high and low for this puzzle but can not find it. It is NOT "See How They Run", the Springbok puzzle. There is apparently another NYC Marathon jigsaw puzzle out there -- any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Question: Dear Sirs: I have a very old puzzle which is, with the exception of one or two pieces, is exactly like your 14 piece 8 X 8 checker board puzzle. It is black and white squares and made of box or bristle board. I am sure it is over 70 years old but has survived all these years in pretty good shape. If I recall correctly, she got it with a bag of flour, rolled oats or oatmeal or she wrote away for the puzzle to a flour company or the like. I am curious about the history of this puzzle and wonder if you could help? Perhaps there is someplace on line that discusses the history of puzzles or a puzzle museum?
Any help that you could provide would certainly be appreciated.
Thank you, Brian B.

Question: Hi
I have this puzzle, it's a block of wood (11inches long, 2.5in high and 1in wide) with 3 equal slots cut in it and an 8 inch nail running through the centre. Both ends are solid with no evidence that a hole was there to get the nail in. How did it get in (it is a solid/one piece nail apparently) and how do you get it out?
Thanks
Dan.

Question: I would like to find who manufactures a specific puzzle and/or where the puzzles are sold. The puzzle has triangular shaped piece, with three different possibilities to place the piece-but only one correct way. I had bought a puzzle like it a daughter-in-laws as a birthday gift a couple of years ago, and now I cannot remember the puzzle maker. I have no way of contacting her now as she is an ex daughter-in-law.

Is there anyone at puzzles.com that can help me?... Thank you very much.

Question: I purchased my daughter a puzzle from her school book fair. The name of the puzzle is The Crazy Hearts Game. It's created by Price Stern Sloan, a member of Penguin Putnam Books. I've tried going to there website, which was no help, and I've been trying off and on throughout the day the figure this one out. There are nine pieces and they must form a square. Each piece has a picture in the center with a partial picture on each side of the puzzle card. Three of the pieces have obvious ends, but I can't figure out the others. Please tell me you've heard of this card puzzle game.

Question: I recall playing a game with matchsticks or cocktail sticks in my uni days where you start with 3 rows - 3 , 5 and 7. You take in turns with removing any number of matchsticks but only from 1 row. You take in turns with your challenger. The aim of the game is to cause your challenger to have to remove the last matchstick.

I want to play my son but win !! For the life of me I do not remember the rules/logic to ensure I do win !! Can any one help

a caring dad
