Hey Dell team,

I recently took advantage of your recent mailing to get the special value pack offer for Tanglewords and Letterboxes. My grandmother, who like me is a heavy Penny/Dell solver, has become a fan of the single-puzzle volumes after I gave her a few this summer, and now we'll both have some new volumes to enjoy for the winter.

But I was curious about one thing that hit me recently while reviewing the volumes. I noticed that Letterboxes volumes have two puzzles per page, while Tanglewords only have one. Given they're both similar puzzles, and in standard Dell full-size magazines you have no trouble fitting two per page, I'm curious to know why there's a discrepancy here? Given they're such similar puzzles, it's a bit odd that for the same price one has twice as many as the other, with ultimately the same page count and price.

The only thing I can think of is that you're aiming for a large print format, but yet it's not advertised that way.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Josh

Hi Josh...we will be looking into this in more detail. The thought behind having one puzzle on a page was to make it more visually appealing, but not as a true large-print format title.
