I was browsing The Puzzler site today when this notice popped up:

The Puzzler website wrote:

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Wow. Very surprising.

I hope Joel is okay. I've ordered several of his boards and score/storage boxes. His products are outstanding and Joel is a wonderful guy.

If anyone knows anything about what's going on, please post.

Damn, that stinks. I love my Puzzler, and Joel is a great guy (at least, from all of my email correspondence with him.)

I had sent Joel some questions about board styling options, color combinations, etc. His response on 9/12 was:

"Mark,

I am not able to fulfill new orders at this time and I'm having to shut down the website for the time being.

I'm so sorry for this inconvenience to you - lots of changes in life circumstances on my end.

Joel
"

I told him there was no need to apologize and that I hoped things worked out for the best for him and his loved ones.

That's sad news, the Puzzler board was a great bridge between the lower cheap board and the higher end board.

Oh man, this makes me sad. We love our Puzzler board, and Joel is a real class act. I hope everything works out ok for him, whatever is going on behind the scenes.

Just adding a reply to wish Joel well. We adore our board and score box.
