Hi, I'm doing pretty well... how are you? (Oh by the way, I'm going to move this discussion over to the Daily Talk thread since this is the intro thread). Hope to see you there... just go to the main team page and you should see Daily Talk.

I, usually, have a Variety book puzzle so do them almost every day. That way I don't get tired of one kind of puzzle. My favorites are cryptograms, letterboxes, Sudoku, fill-ins & frameworks.

I do crosswords every day. I have a book of random puzzles that I do occasionally. I also do escape games online every day - I like collecting the clues and figuring out how to "escape." What type of puzzles do you do daily?

I like word puzzles best - I also like jigsaws. I read lots of mysteries because I enjoy putting clues together and figuring out "whodunnit." I have to confess that I'm not good at number puzzles. It's funny because my daughter is good at Sudoku but bad at crosswords and I'm just the opposite. It would be great to be good at both!

Is anyone in this group interested in 'code breaking'?
I am writing a cozy mystery series and in book two the gals need to break a code. So I am looking for someone willing to take on the puzzle and let me know the steps they tried. (unsuccessful attempts that led to finding the answer, or unsuccessful attempts if it can't be broken) The setting is present day, so computer programs and search engines are fair game.

Hi, I love puzzles so I'm really happy to have found this team! I love jigsaws, crosswords, mysteries, and anything that involves words. I'm not as good at puzzles that involve numbers - I only do sudoku if they're easy ones! I'm really looking forward to being part of the team.

Hi! I'm Michelle from Southwest Colorado. I love doing all kinds of puzzles…word search, crossword, sudoku and jigsaw. I also enjoy reading, crocheting, needlework, embroidering and bead work. I've been on SparkPeople off and on the last 5 years, but mostly off. I decided last month to return and try to be more faithful this time.
I've been trying to walk (on the treadmill) everyday, but can only go about 5 minutes right now. I'm also making myself drink more water and less pop.

Hi Laurie - welcome to the team, so glad you decided to join us. I've been MIA with SP lately -- as you know, but I'm excited to get back with the team and play some games.

I love Sudoku too. I just bought another book - I get them at the dollar store!

If you (or mom) have any ideas for games - let me know. I'm always looking for something new!

Again Welcome!

Maryann, you are in such deep trouble! I checked out this team from a link on your SP and now both Mom and I are addicted to the online jigsaw puzzles.

My current favorite kind of puzzle is Sudoku, though I really like doing logic puzzles, too. I haven't done crosswords in a while. I think I got burned out on them. I'll try just about anything in a Dell puzzle book. Not really a puzzle, but when I want to go mindless I'll play Spider Solitaire.

WOW -- the NY Times crosswords!!! My mother-in-law loved doing those - I never could finished one- lol!!

I've never heard of Kakuro or Hashi - sounds like fun!

Feel free to suggest games or puzzles for us to play. We'd love to give something new a try -

Hi All!

Just rejoined Spark after a year of heavy illness & hospitalization. Revved up & excited to be back, not just to Spark but to life!

I'm so happy to find this team. My Dad was a big puzzle fan, so he ingrained this love in 3 of his 4 daughters. He used to make copies of the NYTimes crossword for all of us to work on. Never the answers!

Now I copy the Games magazines for my daughter so we can both work on them. I love crosswords, Kakuro (cross sums), Hashi (bridges), End Views, logic puzzles & picture logic.

So happy to find kindred spirits!

Hi Everyone!

I'm Doug and love just about any kind of puzzle from anagrams to Zork. I am retired from the Air Force and have a wife with 2 boys and 2 miniature schnauzers. My oldest son has a brain injury from being hit by a car when he was 13 and both boys are Eagle Scouts. I've been a Scoutmaster for several years and have recently become a Committee Chair for my son's troop. I do martial arts and love playing chess. I'm puzzled as to why I didn't find this team sooner. :-)

Welcome Kristi,
I hope you find some time for yourself too!
Spark is a great tool to use to help you with all kinds of tips with eating healthy and getting the right exercise. Feel free to reach out if you need some help.
There are lots of links and games here to enjoy. The team is pretty much self-sufficient, but like I said, reach out if there is anything we can do or point you in the right direction.
All the best on your new journey.

Hello, my name is Kristi and I love all types of puzzles. I am hoping that this year I will be able to lose the weight that I have gained over the years and become the person on the outside that I feel like in the inside. I have three girls that use up most of the free time but this year I am trying to carve out some time for me. emoticon

Hi, name is Pat. I saw on my friend feed that Karen (GOSPELCLOWN) joined this team. I came over and decided to join. I am on a BL challenge team so I may not always have time to do the scavenger hunts. I am glad I found this team. I think you are a fun group.

I live in Alabama. I started working on jigsaw puzzles last year after helping my DH put one together. Boy, I really got hooked on jigsaw puzzles! I also love Sudoku, Word, Jigsaw, Riddles, Mysteries. I love to read mysteries. I my favorite TV series is NCIS.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Hello Folks-

I just joined today and I'm interested in the Scavenger Hunt coming up soon.
I live in Canada, so I hope we have the 'same things'!

Blessings to you all!

Hi All!
Joining on sandydollar's invite and looking forward to the scavenger hunt.
I'm in NC and am a retired physician.

Huge puzzle fan!
Do sudoku all the time, and used to subscribe to several Logic Puzzle magazines (but don't have time to do them all anymore). Play Scrabble, Boggle and other board games (often on Pogo as UNC2009bball). Have a couple of jigsaw puzzles here right now that I haven't had the time to get around to.

The turtle only makes progress when it sticks its neck out. -James Bryant Conant

It's easier to hit your target when you know what you are aiming at.

Hello Puzzle Lovers Team --

My name is Maryann and I've been on SP since August, 2011. I enjoy putting puzzles together as well as playing Sudoku.

I started out doing quite well -- losing 14 pounds. Then Halloween rolled around and the candy kept calling my name! So it's been a challenge to break those bad habits!

Looking forward to getting to know you all. Please feel free to stop by my page.

BTW - Jeanette, my husband and I lived in St. Louis the first three years of our marriage. It's a great town.

Hi, I'm JB from Austin, Texas, USA. I've loved jigsaw puzzles my whole life--my grandmother got me started. My mom got me started on punny word games. I got an iPad last year and now I do lots of words puzzles online too. And Angry Birds, of course, for puzzles of the animated kind. It's nice to find similarly puzzled people on SP.

Hey Patti~ *hugs* Thanks for the invite! I'm sure this will be more fun than the game boards ("How high can we count?" ACK! Gimme a break!). Anyway, just rolled in from school and this looks like a great place to unwind while tapping the ol' noodle. I'll look for you in some word association~ which I love. *hugs* BB~ emoticon

I've been a Sparker for about a week. I love mental challenges and puzzles, but I'm the only one in my family who really does. Fortunately, board games are a close second and my kids will jump at the chance to play a few of those.

I look forward to having fun and seeing what this team has to offer. emoticon

Hello!

I have been back on SP for about 2 months and just saw this team on someone else's page and thought I'd check it out!

I LOVE jigsaw puzzles, but don't do them nearly enough! I also like crosswords and word scrambles.

Jigsaws always remind me of my Dad, we'd do them together when I was growing up...Daddy doesn't do them as much now, "too hard on my eyes!".. emoticon

This looks like a fun group! Looking forward to meeting you!

Hi there. I'm Jenny from South Africa. This sounds like fun. I play Sudoku from time to time, and any email game the comes across my desk, if I have a minute. I mostly tend to do number games. Being an accountant, you would think that enough is enough, but that's what I do. Not too much into cross word puzzles, but willing to try. Thanks for starting this team.

Hello (again)!

You had my attention from the minute you mentioned puzzles. I love crossword and jigsaw puzzles.

My name is Lisa. My husband and I live in Berks County, PA. Some of you probably know me from a couple of other spark teams that we're in.

Thank you kindly for starting the group!

Hi! My name is Michele! I have always loved puzzles. I don't have much free time, so I don't get a chance to do them like I'd like to. But the love of puzzles in incorporated into a couple of my jobs. A sideline job of mine is doing sewing alterations for weddings etc. Each dress is different, the bodies are different shapes and it is my job to figure out how to make them work together. In this type of puzzle, I'm actually changing the pieces so they do fit together. Don't worry, I don't do that with jigsaw puzzles, lol! My full-time job is as an assistant in an elementary school. The human brain is a very difficult puzzle to figure out, very complicated and I'll never master it. But it is a unique challenge to find ways to help the little minds grasp a concept. My new job and yes third job, is teaching Zumba Fitness! I love it! I don't see a strong connection to that and to puzzles, but it does truly help my brain function better so that I'm better at puzzles! Spark On Everyone!!!!

Hi I'm Heather. I love all kinds of puzzles. My grandma always had a jigsaw puzzle on a table at her house. I guess I got it from her. I love to do jigsaws with my dad and father in law when they come to visit. Alone at home I love Suduko(can't spell it though). I also enjoy word games. Has anyone played Quiddler or Bananagrams?
This is a great team for me. Thanks Tanya for getting this team started. emoticon

Hi! I'm Patti. Love word games. Some of the ones I do on other teams are what comes in mind when you see a word, or name a food from the last letter another member posted. I'm pretty game for about anything. But I can be a little slow at times. Thanks for this team. Awesome!
