Although a bit more specialty, I'd say Dell's Math & Logic Problems is diverse enough to make the list  not focused on a single puzzle type.

Well, Josh, I think those mags have only two types: math, and logic. (I forget if they have Sudoku as well.)

While true that the puzzles fall into logic and math, the variety within them is way more than a singletype magazine like Logic Problems, or Sudoku. There's Cross Sums, Sudoku (and some Sudoku variations), KenKen, Figure Logics, Logic Problems, Trigons, Collectibles, Sum Logic... a lot of the Dell stalwarts in that vein. While the magazine does focus on three core puzzles that make up a significant percentage of the issue (Cross Sums, Figure Logics and Logic Problems), the variety of remaining puzzles makes it feel closer to a variety magazine in my mind. But it's certainly not as diverse as the other, standard variety puzzle magazines.

Sounds like a variety mag to me.

Keep posting Josh  I enjoy reading your posts as the puzzles you're passionate about are not the ones I regularly solve  but I appreciate a person who is passionate about their pursuits.
How's the city treating you? I saw that there was a foot of snow last week?
Do you listen to WFAN? I stream it through my phone into my car and it makes my drive home pleasurable. I will miss Mike F.
