About The Confoundry

The Confoundry is ultimately the result of a classroom project that began in November of 2010. One of my students and I, after a session of brainstorming imagined an online community where puzzles lovers could come together. The site launched in early March of 2011.

Over the course of the remainder of the school year, the site grew slowly, amassing a wide collection of puzzles and riddles. As the school year came to a close, the site fell into a state of neglect. In November of 2011, a rewrite was begun. White the idea of the site felt solid, the code behind the scenes was not. The rewrite was completed in February of 2012, relaunching on the 18th of February.
