For centuries humans have been enchanted by puzzles. From spoken riddles, to wooden boxes with secret locks and newspaper crosswords— across the globe we’ve loved finding new ways to tease our brains and test our ingenuity. 

Puzzles are a great source of entertainment and relaxation, but did you know:

  • The first jigsaw puzzles date back to the eighteenth century when European cartographers pasted maps onto pieces of wood and cut them into small pieces as aids for teaching geography. 

  • The first crossword puzzle known to be published was created by journalist Arthur Wynne. It was printed in a Sunday newspaper in 1913 and kickstarted a craze of puzzle pages appearing in magazines and news bulletins.
