    Default Snail mail puzzles?

    Are there puzzles and word games that come to your home in an envelope with a stamp on them?

    A few years ago I sent away for some sort of puzzle that turned out to be like 15 pages of questions and word games. It may have been a first-one-is-free monthly puzzle. But since then, I've lost it so I don't even know what that one was.

    Is there anything else like that?

    If you join the The National Puzzlers' League, they send you a monthly booklet of specialty puzzles called The Enigma.

    I thought P&A Magazine maybe used to be something you get in the mail, but now it looks like it's online-only as a download.

    Of course, there is always GAMES magazine -- and Highlights.

    If you could describe the kinds of questions that came along with the word games in the puzzle set you remember, I'm sure one of us could narrow down what you are trying to remember.

    I think The Enigma through The National Puzzlers' League is what I got! If not that, it was something very, very similar. I thought it cost something like $10-$15 per month maybe. This is $23 per year. That's not unreasonable, I guess.

    And my friend and I were just talking about Highlights about an hour ago. We we discussing the dentist's office and things we only ever see at doctors' offices and nowhere else. Highlights is like that.

    Thanks for the reply.
