Bit of a Puzzle Nerd®? Wanna meet like-minded puzzlers? Or simply looking to make new pals? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you’re looking for a friend to share your puzzle struggles with, or someone to swap and share designs with, we’re here to help.
Yep, that’s right: we’re turning this very blog post into a meeting place for puzzlers. If you want to give it a go, it’s super simple to get started. Just write a line or two about yourself in the comments section below. You can write anything you like (see below for some topic ideas) but it’s a good idea to include something about yourself, and what you’d like to chat about.
Important bit: make sure you include your email address in the post itself (not just the email field) so that people can reach out to you. It’s a good idea to write your email in this format: hello[at]cloudberries.co.uk so your message doesn’t get eaten by our spam filter.
If you’re a bit too shy to post here yourself, that’s okay… just keep your eye on the comments below and send a message to the puzzler (or puzzlers!) that seem like a good match. Be sensible, stay safe, and let the good times roll – puzzlers are a lovely bunch, and we hope this idea can help to kick-start some new friendships!
