Sadly, I received word in April 2018 that The Center for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University decided to cease publication of Imagine magazine. May/June ’18 was the final issue. That summer, I also left UIC to start a new job at The University of Maine. With the normal demands of the publication cycle gone, and a big mathematics education project awaiting me at UMaine, I haven’t been able to devote much time to puzzlemaking and updating the website.
But that doesn’t mean that Knossos Games is no more. I’ve kept the website up and running, because I knew how many people enjoy the puzzles here. There are still parts of the website that need to be updated. There are puzzles that were published in Imagine that I’ve never had time to post on the website. And there are puzzles that I had been saving up for Imagine that never saw the light of day.
Just as there always has been, there is still a tremendous amount of potential for Knossos Games ahead. I’m eternally grateful for the 25 years that my puzzle column appeared in print. I’m happy that it gets to continue to live on here.
