This site is a companion site to Enigmatic Code (which collects Enigma puzzles originally published in New Scientist and their solutions).

It is for discussing and posting notes and solutions to Sunday Times Brainteaser puzzles.

Primarily it is focussed on archiving old puzzles, but I also put up new puzzles when they become available.

My current sources are:

  • Puzzles from 1961 (the first numbered Teaser puzzle) onwards.
  • Puzzles from 1974 – 1979 selected for the book The Sunday Times Book of Brain Teasers (1982).
  • Puzzles from 1991 – 2000 selected for the book Brainteasers (2002).
  • Puzzles from 2013 onwards, that I solved at the time.
  • Other puzzles that I find interesting.

If there are other puzzles you would like me to include please get in touch.

To be notified when new puzzles are posted enter your email in the Subscribe box on the right.

Feel free to join in, either by leaving a comment (with a program if you like), linking to your own solution, or by rating puzzles (or just “liking” them). If you want to leave a general comment about the site, please do so below. Any kind of feedback is useful in encouraging me to keep the site going!

If you use this site as a source of puzzles please include a link back to the puzzle on this site.


Here are some other sites that focus on Sunday Times Brainteaser puzzles:

  • Sunday Times Teasers — a discussion site for Sunday Times Teasers (the previous site [link] had Teasers going back to 2010)
  • PuzzlingInPython — Brian’s site for Python solutions to Sunday Times Teasers
