Something will go here one day soon...Gaiety, merriment and dancing, etc.

Coffee Table Puzzles

This section highlights several puzzles that just look TOO GOOD to take apart. Leave them on the coffee table and let people admire them, handle them, tweak at them, puzzle over them, or, in one particular case, you can actually use a puzzle AS a coffee table. There’s a pen on the table in each picture to give an idea of size.

The Lost Weekend




I started this web site in about 1998.  As of Autumn 2016 it is getting its biggest ever refurbishment. 

My goals are to include more current information, more pictures, no dead links, consistent format and typeface, better readability on more screens, and to get rid of characters that display badly.  But no free beer.

It is a bit untidy and experimental ...but just wait...

Text first, then pictures to be replaced.
