The idea behind PuzzleUniverse.com was actually given to me by my good friend Geoffrey, who insisted on having a puzzle-related directory with all our favorite links in one place. After several weeks of programming and coding this site came to life. Puzzle Universe is the ultimate link directory for anyone looking to entertain themselves during their spare time. Whether you are looking for logic games, interesting trivia apps or even crosswords, we will include everything on this website!
Each of the links will include a short description from me. In case you would like to add your site or report a broken link kindly do so by using the contact page.
