The yellow beginnings
Puzzel.org was kickstarted by me, Daan Weustenraad, between 2016 and 2017. I wanted to learn how to build web applications and was having fun creating cryptic descriptions as you normally see in the newspaper cryptic crossword puzzles.
I wanted to combine the two to create a web application that could generate an interactive crossword puzzle grid, which was solvable online and easy to use (by my family, since these were the only users at the time :-))
And so looking for a domain name to host this application, I found 'Puzzel.org', the Dutch word for 'puzzle'. Bingo! I would have never have guessed what was about to come..
