The puzzle portal is a collection of puzzles created by puzzle enthusiasts from all over the world. At the moment the portal contains 9445 puzzles.
If this is your first visit to the puzzle portal we recommend that you take a tour to get an overview of the portal contents.
We have put together a collection of puzzles suitable for beginners. These contain solution hints - and we hope that these puzzles will help you getting started.
Note: Parts of the Portal are currently under revision. In particular, the management of labels and tags (marks to describe puzzle properties) has changed recently. We are asking you to observe the guidelines on this Help page when creating new puzzles, and to adjust the labels/tags for puzzles which you have created in the past following the same standards.
Another note: The Portal will be moderated in the future, see the following forum thread for more information. Each Moderator can be contacted via his User page, and there is a link in the help pages to send a message to the entire moderator team.
To help you getting started navigating the portal we have put together some puzzle collections.
