Puzzle Compendium

I have been buying Puzzle Compendium for over 15 years, however, over the years, the theming of the books has been non-existent e.g Halloween, Christmas issues etc. Each issue would be full of seasonal puzzles rather than just random ones you get now. I think they should go back to the way they used to be and make them more enjoyable again. I love Puzzle Compendium, but it's not as good as it used to be.

Enjoyable puzzle fix

I enjoy this publication, but would prefer more of the skeleton and outsider crosswords. I do find there are a few too many children's puzzles and would prefer less kriss kross, spot the difference and word search puzzles. Would it be possible to have a more grown up magazine that has less of these in? I tend to skip a lot of pages because of this.

I feel there are too many wordsearch puzzles. They can be quite boring. I would like to see more pieceword and general knowledge puzzles.

It is so true that we all different puzzles. However I find there is an imbalance with more crosswords than necessary.

There seems to be an imbalance of types of puzzles i.e. there are so many Wordsearches, Kriss Kross which can be a bit boring so I do not often complete! It would be nice to see more Outsider, Kross Filler type puzzles!

Good selection of puzzles - keep me busy all month. Would like to see more Sudoku, Killer Sudoku and Suguru and maybe a few less Wordsearch and Kriss Kross but that's just me. An excellent book.
