This episode is a bit of an enigma: we’ll visit Eureka Puzzles in Coolidge Corner.
I’ve always loved puzzles — particularly those little metal ones you have to take apart. The problem is that over the years I’ve gotten pretty good at them, and most of the new ones I find are pretty easy. That’s not a problem at Eureka Puzzles.
My guest is the owner, David Leschinsky, and if you like puzzles he’s your guy. With thousands of puzzles, books and games — including a jigsaw puzzle with 23,000 pieces — David’s store is quite an experience. It’s one of only a few puzzle stores in the country, so I figured that there must be an interesting story in amongst the brainteasers.
So to find out, I stopped by for a chat — and couldn’t resist leaving with a few puzzles for the trip home.
