While browsing yesterday I noticed someone had mentioned jigidi site. I popped over to have a look as I hadn't heard of it before & it got me wondering what other sites gransnetters had found that they thought might be worth a recommendation?

Someone once posted a link to the New Yorker magazine jigsaw puzzles. Should have come with a health warning, as they are somewhat addictive!

The Only Connect site is good.

I did loads of those New Yorker jigsaws, and I do the Only Connect wall sometimes, but I must admit I find them quite hard.
Freecell card games are the current time waster, but I would like a change now!

Yes I did, why?
