So, where do I go to get a puzzle these days? It was an informal tradition in my parents house to have a puzzle set up during the holidays to give you something to do when everybody has run out of things to talk about but nobody will be the first to turn on the television. We usually got a cheesy murder mystery puzzle which you have to construct to learn who dunnit. Scott and I decided to get one for ourselves this year since it’s not looking like we’ll have the internet to distract us for Christmas. I went to two malls to find a games store (I remember these very clearly, they had board games, puzzles and a bit of role playing supplies) but they don’t seem to exist any more. I ended up buying a not too cloying puzzle at Toys R Us (a place I never want to set foot in again) and a Lost mystery puzzle at Target (which I’m pretty sure I’m going to return). Anybody? Know of a store with a good selection of puzzles in or around Seattle?
