First I'd like to thank the many of you who satisfied this old cat's curiosity by telling me the origin of your names and how you found griddlers! I have LOVED every single story!

Now, I have a new obsession! What do you DO? I wonder if there is a common thread to the occupations of Griddler-devotees. I have noticed many members in math/science/technology fields and also in the academic area and even social service oriented jobs. So, tell me what you do and how, if at all, Griddlers impacts your work. Does it sharpen your wit, improve your logic skills/give you an illicit break from what you ought to be doing? Do you actually USE griddlers on the job? Teach them in school, for example? What use COULD they serve if you used your imagination and creativity?

At night, when the children are in bed and sound asleep it is mums time !!!!!

Griddlers help me to relax, and do something I enjoy doing. It also helps keep my brain ticking over. For no matter how much I enjoy my children, I need some stimulation.

So thank you griddlers team for saving my sanity.

I'm a software developer. I solve griddlers and triddlers every now an then throughout the day (mostly when I'm waiting for something to complet, such as when I'm compiling something). I also solve them in my free time at home.

I like the challenge and stimulation of them, and I try to keep up with the triddlers as best as I can. So far, I've been successful at completing every triddler that has been created and keeping up with all of the new ones. With all of the griddlers and the amount of new ones every day, I've given up the hope of solving every one of them any time in the foreseeable future. -(

I even like to create a puzzle every now and then and currently have 6 up on this site (3 gridders and 3 triddlers).

Another teacher here! I teach ESL ( English for Second Language Learners) to K5 through 5th Grade youngsters during the regular school year. This summer I am teaching reading and math to at-risk 4th Graders for our Summer Academy. Griddlers is both relaxing and mind stimulating. But, at this time, it's an avoidance technique. I should be finishing my master's thesis and inservice program. However, I find that working the Griddlers clears my mind so that I can concentrate and be more productive...is this a rationalkization for my wasting time or what?!?! No, I do not use Griddlers with my students. Most of them have enough trouble with basics.

I'm a Mental Health Counselor currently working with convicted sex offenders, the majority of whom were recently released after many years incarceration. I print off the 50X50 griddlers and work on them when I need a break from the some of the intensity of the job. I find that carrying a clipboard of griddlers also makes me look like I'm busy with paperwork ;) They also come in handy for killing time when I've got 'down time' (e.g. waiting to testify in court, during over-extended administrative meetings, etc.) And then in the evenings and weekends, I always make some time to solve a few on line.

Well that's me! I have a bachelor's in math, and love to read all that I can on the subject. I'm working on another degree in women's studies. I do all sorts of volunteer work for local non-proftis, that social service category. Here's the thing, my favorite job was working with young women, in an after-school program, definetly a service oriented job. The thing is I love school so much I'll probably end up in some sort of academic feild.

Griddlers keep me thinking, and I love that.

Chef, you curious cat! )

I work as an editor in the largest Slovak publishing house (which is not large in comparison to the largest publishing houses in the rest of Europe LOL). I never quite liked maths back at school, but I always loved logical puzzles of all sort. A couple of years ago (well, some 7 years ago, to be precise) I discovered griddlers in a newspaper and I became addicted almost instantly. So when I discovered this site, it was quite normal that I have become a regular visitor to this site.

I do most of griddlers at home - just for the fun of it (and as a relax). But when I'm fed up with my work (which isn't often) I do griddlers even at work. When I need a break, I make some coffee and griddle ).
I gave up teaching it other people unless they ask me. Most of the people I know think I'm "strange" when they see me filling empty squares but I don't mind. They don't know what fun is hidden behind it, do they? LOL

But Chef, you didn't reveal YOUR story. Will you do it for us? We're curious too!

I'm a work at home mom. I have a degree in computer science and now do mostly ColdFusion web development. I have 3 kids, all under 5, and sometimes I griddle and triddle to escape. I usually do a few in the morning to help my brain wake up, and will work on a really hard one at night - the kind where you go over and over it, trying to find just one more box to mark - to help me fall asleep. I first discovered these puzzles in Games Magazine, and got their book. I worked and then erased those puzzles until the paper was worn out! I am very grateful to have a virtually unlimited supply now!

Sorry, Dominika, what was I thinking?

I was a teacher for several years working with 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English and History students, but at that time I didn't even know Griddlers existed. More recently my time has been spent with 2-5 year olds as a Media Center Paraprofesional- mostly reading stories and teaching library skills. (Not much use for Griddlers with the 2year old set, I'm afraid!) but, while working at the school I got to know one of our teachers for the Gifted.

I had an absolutely wonderful time one day when I made arrangements to go into her classroom and teach Griddlers to her 5th and 6th grade students. It was fabulous! Some of them had no use for Griddlers- it's more than just IQ, it's also drive and persistence and many of these kids feel the need to succeed instantly or they give up. However, there were a precious few who ask me about Griddlers to this day.

I also substitute teach at the school and now that we have the minimalist puzzles and the super-easy kiddlers, I intend to keep a ready supply with me. You never know when extra activities will come in handy when you're called upon to fill in for a teacher at the last minute!

I can see SO many uses for Griddlers with children and young adults! Not only for teaching logic, but what about maps of continents, states or nations? Great works of art or historic persons or buildings? What a way to involve the students and get them to really take a detailed look at the subject!

Not surprisingly I'm seeing a lot of stay-at home moms (as I was for 6 years. Anything to keep your mind above the level of a screaming 2-year old! You know you're in trouble when you find you're humming the latest songs from Sesame Street instead of the latest Top 10 hit!


Thank you to all of you who have responded so generously with your ideas.

Leave it up to you, Chef, to come up with another great link.

I am a licensed Medical Technologists who will within the next few months be changing from managing a 5 doctor physicians office laboratory to a 34 doctor, 17 office laboratory. Doing griddlers helps relieve some of the stress of this transition. I have always had a passion for puzzles especially logic or mind games. I came across griddlers in game magazine and immediately fell in love with them so I was thrilled when I found this site. I do griddlers at work, both on paper and on line during lunch or any other slow time. I don't have as much time to do them now as I have in the past, but I still try to get in an hour or so in the evening. I always have a few 50 X 50 griddlers with me to work on. I have found that this site is not only a great site for griddlers but also a great site to make friends. I have made some really great friends and with the message capabilities it's so easy to keep in touch with them. You have to figure that the people on the site have the same interests as you do. How often in the "real" world do you find that?

First of all, Griddlers has nothing to do with my job. I work for JLG Industries ( for those of you who are unfamiliar with them, we make Diesel and electric powered boom lifts - the second largest supplier globally). Griddlers for me is just a natural extension of a lifelong passion for logic puzzles. I have always found that working my brain is the best way to relax and unwind. As for possible uses, I had a trig teacher years and years ago who used logic puzzles for extra credit work.

As always, great thread chefmomster!

Griddlers relax me, and sharpen my mind. I can often be found with the site open at work... finishing "just one more" puzzle at lunch. When I am overwhelmed with people, questions, projects and responsibilities... griddlers are a chance to focus on thinking my way through to a beautiful outcome.

I work in the Community Development office of the small city of Bath, Maine in the US. Community Development means... we write lots of grants! for housing programs, environmental clean-up, businesses, and more. My favorite recent successful grant is for ArtWorks, a summer arts outreach program (think art teachers with a van full of supplies).

In my spare time, I make mosaics from scrap glass and tile - a project not unlike solving a griddler!

I can truly identify with Chandcar. Several years ago I became the stay-at-home parent, and started a subscription to Games magazine and found the PBN puzzles. I too bought the book, and did every single one!

Then, after doing an online search for Paint By Numbers, I ran across the PBN site, and was reading an old forum post which brought me to Griddlers. I've been here ever since!

I find that Griddlers satisfy a life-long passion I've had for jigsaw puzzles, without needing to take up space on a table, or look for lost pieces. I think the largest jigsaw I ever did was 10,000 pieces. (Never again!)

While at home, I've taken on some extensive volunteer projects at my son's school, the biggest of which is a world geography study program. 400 students at this school are learning the locations of countries around the world. I am very proud of the what I have helped these kids accomplish, and I enjoy finding people from some of these places on this site. How many Americans do you find who know that Yugoslavia is now Serbia and Montenegro? What has been particularly interesting is how much the kids have taught their parents!

Now, I will be returning to work as a Software Engineer (my husband is taking over the at-home parenting responsibilities) I will certainly not have as much time to spend on the Griddlers site, but I will still be here!

Keep up the fine work, Griddlers!

I'm a legal secretary and part time software beta tester for various companies. I've always been analytical and I love a challenge so grids are perfect. I used to buy PBN books years ago and when I finished all the puzzles, I'd buy the same one again if there wasn't a new one out yet. Talk about obsessive!!! Now my obsession is griddlers. It doesn't directly help my work but I can pretty much do a grid and completely clear my mind, relax and get a mental break from the everyday stuff. I do grids at work and home. I've gotten one daughter addicted and my other daughter thinks they're a waste of time. Can you tell which one inherited the analytical DNA from me. =)

Here's my two cents. I am a Java Developer who writes online certification management software. It's fun work, mostly, but I do need the occasional "illicit" break. And that's where Griddlers comes in.

Doing the puzzles is a great distraction for me, and when I've had enough of writing code and tracking down bugs, a puzzle with a beautiful picture at the end of it is just what I need.

I use griddlers to relax before bed. I originally found this type of puzzle when I was looking for online coloring pages for a kid, and the term 'paint by number' brought up a site that did this type of stuff. That was about 3 years ago. I migrated here because a) griddlers is up more often than that site, and b) there's more than just black and white grids. )

As far as work, I answer phones for a credit card company. Customer service work. Nothing fancy.

Hi Everyone,
I now manage the information centre in a growing market town in England (current pop. around 33,000) and have a staff of volunteers, which has been a very new, interesting and rewarding experience. I love the job, always work extra hours and don't really mean the grumbles about being so tired! Every day there are "problems" to solve working out the right journey itinerary, filling in a complicated form for someone, finding out where an American visitor's family used to live, answering things like "I know it's a long shot, but do you know Jock?" (and we found the guy!) I love a challenge and I love not knowing what's going to happen at work today.
I've been doing this job for 3 years and before that I ran a language centre (courses and translation/interpreting service) in Germany for 12 years - yup, I too was a teacher!
Ever since I can remember, I've enjoyed solving puzzles & brain teasers. I first got addicted to PBN through books and always brought an armful back from holidays in the US. And then one day I found this wonderful, friendly site. I am constantly on the lookout for unusual sites for a feature I do once a week on BBC Radio called "WWWW - weird, wacky and wonderful websites". I haven't featured griddlers.net on there yet, but it's on the associated website as one of the places I spend an awful lot of my time! I do the puzzles at home - there's no time at work - and I frequently fall asleep in front of the screen - no, not because griddlers are boring, but because it's 4 a.m. and I really ought to be in bed! I solve griddlers rather than triddlers because I know where I am with those. I haven't really had a go at triddlers yet, but I know I will soon.

Yep, I'm another one of the "tech" group.

I am a "business analyst" - at my company that's a systems analyst who was never a programmer. I have learned some programming along the way, but I got this job because of my logic skills along with my business experience.

There's no way to use griddlers in my business, but I guess they do keep my mind working.

Some people may want to get away from their work at lunch time, but I like to do griddlers then. Even if it's more of the logical thinking, it is a break for me.

It seems there are a lot of teachers here, and a number of stay at home moms. I'm a little of both. I am always involved with children. I've worked as a preschool director, preschool teacher, and day care worker, also home day care. I've homeschooled my children. Now I am a stay at home mom with 2 medium ones, 8 and 10, that we are adopting. I have 4 of my own, along with 8 grandchildren. (Well, it'll be 8 this December.)
Anyway, I stumbled across Griddlers and love them, I've done them in Games magazine and did a search. I typed in games.com--big mistake--it was a porn site! Anyway, I finally found this site. I now have a subscription for Games magazine, and I am here at Griddlers everyday. I had the idea to start with the easy ones and just progress on through to the hardest ones, but I never get off of page one, because there are so many new ones everyday!
I just love to do them, I love to do puzzles, I love numbers, sometimes I just count for no reason. I go to sleep by counting the days in the months to find out what day Christmas will fall on this year, and stuff like that. Weird!

I am a stay at home mother of two (William Boychild, and Beth MaryBeth). We home school our children, and are in the process of finishing 5th grade. I majored in history and behavioral science in college, and minored in art. I love to sew, crochet, needlepoint, and garden. I enjoy the logic of basic math, algebra, and geometry. At one point I loved accounting because I could add up rows and rows of neatly printed numbers and write delicately consistent cursive words on big 13 column worksheets. When my teacher put me on a computer, I suddenly lost all interest. The machine took away everything I loved about accounting.

When I first met my husband (Daniel jdashton), he was saddened by my fear and loathing of computers (especially as he was a computer science major). Being the very wise man that he is, he quickly got me hooked on computer games. He knew I loved puzzles, so the first game he introduced me to was Tetris. I loved it! Over the last 14 years (this coming thursday -) ) he has introduced me to many more games, paint programs, and even HTML. I have managed to make friends with the computers in my life, and do a large amount of school and household work on them too. Several months ago Daniel found this site and showed it to me. I have enjoyed it immensely and have spread the word to many of our friends and neighbors.

I do use griddlers in school. When the kids get done with school early they can play school related computer games. Griddlers, is one of their favorite choices. I have seen a definite increase in their problem solving ability, and it crosses over into many different classes and life situations. I am planning on mentioning this site at my next home school evaluation.

I solve and create griddlers whenever I have a spare moment. During school it gives me something to do after I have explained an assignment, while the kids are working quietly. I am nearby, doing something that is not too distracting (as long as they can't see the screen! lol) I nearly always work one during our lunch break, and again in the evening whenever I can. I sometimes print them out to take with us when Daniel and I have music rehearsals.

Something that has just occurred to me is that most of the people we have introduced to griddlers are musically inclined (I can only think of two that aren't, out of 12 or more people). Of these musical people the majority play more than one instrument... and sing. Music is very mathematical I wonder if there is a connection.

Much thanks to the team for creating a site that fills so many creative, logical, fun, and escapist needs for so many people. )

I majored in Mathematics and Music in college. I have a true love for number logic and most of my hobbies center around creative uses of logic and numbers. For the last 10 years I have stayed at home to raise my kids, but I tutor math students (Jr. High through College) on the side. Also, I coach instrumental and vocal music students, play for weddings (on one of many instruments) and play for church.

I always have a puzzle with me. When I go to competitions with students, I entertain myself with puzzles. The students often look over my shoulder and question me on how to solve "griddler-like" puzzles. This allows me an opening to encourage them to love mathematics. I really believe there are not many students who, given proper instruction, can't master most basic math concepts. Logic style puzzles can show them the entertaining side of math.

I am a college Student. A science major with plans to obtain my PhD. I have always been interested in Logic puzzles and was first introduced to Griddlers as Japanese Crosswords. There was a sample in the back of my logic puzzle magazine. I immediately fell in love and began searching for them on the internet. That is how I found this site.
I think Griddlers would be an excellent tool to use in the classroom, perhaps at the Midddle School level. Often teachers have little creative thinking exercises or "fun" homework and give out crosswords or word finds...why not griddlers? They are fun and make you think and use problem-solving skills.

My children play violin and piano, my husband plays violin, viola, string bass, piano, recorder, trumpet, trombone, tuba, . . . well, he plays nearly everything. Griddling friends I know of play violin, viola, cello, recorder (soprano to great bass), trombone, french horn, tuba, baritone, piano, organ, harpsicord, flute, oboe, clarinet, hand bells, percussion, and I am probably forgetting something!

Studies took three years so it would be the real study for someone but for me it was just great hobby, one interesting to do, one dream to fullfill.

Studying something as theoretic as business and economy it's nice to have something totally different as hobby. Every kind of handicrafts fill my leisure time. Hmm.. what there is left after griddlers... emoticon Knitting, sewing, bead works, embroidering, just name it.

Coming to think of it I can find the more logic part and the creative part in griddlers too. Solving needs logic but the result is beautiful picture. And of course creating new puzzles is great. :toothy8:

Some of our lessons are with computers and since there is internet access I find it sometimes quite difficult to focus on the subject when there are so many griddlers to solve... I also showed griddlers to couple of my friends and now they are addicted too. :angel12: Obviously we have been making them quite often as our teacher in computer skills already knows what this site is about.

I'm a widdow and a mother to 3 great sons (ages 10,12,14). We always loved logic puzzles and tried to drag our kids to solve them with us. We came across griddlers in a magazine several years ago, but never became addicted.
A few months ago I've been abroad and bought myself a magazine at the airport, it had a lot of griddlers and I hardly touched them before I got back home. My two youngest sons asked me what I was doing and immediately got hooked on the idea. I searched for a site for them (they are computer addicts more than anything else) and came across conceptis. It was the English version and my kids didn't like the idea of having to use a foriegn language while trying to have fun, so they searched for themselves. The first site they found was this one, they both registered and started solving griddlers only a few days later they remembered to tell me about it and the rest is history emoticon

But my passion are foreign languages: I love learning them (and spending almost all of my time with Haruna who has the same passion doesn't help :winkemoticon

well, first time i got to read this post,
it is great to put some personality behind "famous" members in this community.
so here is me :
i'm currently on my second year to a b.sc. in physics.
my two biggest passions are music and math (mostly practical math such as griddlers making or solving)
i've been playing the drums since i was 12 and recently took a year study in producing music on my PC.
(i guess if someone would make an arrangment and people would send me recorded tracks i could mix them into a griddler anthem...).
i have been doing griddlers for many years but just a couple of years ago my brother showed me this site and i'm hooked ever since !!!

Love this site!!!

I am a retired state employee. I have a degree in accounting with a minor in computer science. I am so logical I have no artistic talent whatsoever. That is why I'm only a solver and never a creator. But I am just totally amazed by the talent of all the creators on this site and love solving the puzzles to see the beautiful pictures. Thanks go to all the creators.

I work in an office for a Building, Maintenance and Refurbishment company. I have a lot of spare time on my hands at work so i surf the net a lot hence the reason I came across Griddlers and they introduced me to my favourite puzzle Triddlers. As I have a lot of spare time this is where I do 99% of my puzzling.

I'm a school student.
I havent even started GCSE level yet.
So as you can imagine, the time I'm not doing my homework I like to do some Griddlers.
Keeps my intelligence up. I can feel it rotting away during such lessons as P.E. and when I'm at home watching T.V.

Hi,

I'm a college student and I just got into university in economics. I have been using Griddlers for so long I can't even remember. It helps me relax and just give my brain something to do.emoticon
