Puzzles - what are they?

"Puzzles" mean many types of nice little problems to solve, mostly based on pictures and diagrams but also on numbers and letters. Crossword puzzles are actually one type of these puzzles and by far the most popular of them. Jisaw puzzles are another very common type. Puzzles are still rather unknown here in Finland and many people think that they are just for kids. Most puzzles here are published in kids magazines. But there are puzzles for adults too, and the World Championships have been held since 1991. We have had Finnish Championship now for few times and a Finnish Puzzle Club, Ahaa!, has been founded.

I have taken few times part to the World Puzzle Championship in Team Finland, and I have written trip reports about them:
