My name is Kevin Stone, I live in the UK, and I have had a love of puzzles for many years. BrainBashers has now been around for over 25 years(!), starting as Puzzles 4U in 1997, which became BrainBashers in 1998.
The site is now celebrating its 25th anniversary, and I have nearly finished the next phase - bringing back lots of the old content that I used to have. Have you found the hidden game? At the moment BrainBashers has 83,900 Japanese-type puzzles, 829 brain teasers, 205 illusions, 29 stereograms, 1,098 30 Seconds puzzles, and 1,831 mazes!
Puzzles4U - September 1997The creation of the website that would soon become BrainBashers. The first design was very simple, and set the trend for blue for the next 13 years.
BrainBashers - October 199812 months later and the design had to reflect the new name and the increasing content.
BrainBashers - September 1999The first design by John Morton, as the internet was speeding up, graphics were the future. Many sections of BrainBashers began to have a proper home.
BrainBashers - January 2003Another design by John Morton, bringing the site into the 21st century and setting a look that would last the next 7 years.
BrainBashers - May 2010This was a minor change on one hand, as the main content remained the same, but a large one on the other as the main blue on the left and top was removed. This was to bring the site up-to-date in terms of freshness, speed, and simplicity.
BrainBashers - September 2022The site was now 25 years old. The site had recently been modified to make it a little more friendly for mobile / cell phone users, and users with smaller screens. Accessibility had also been improved.
Note: BrainBashers has a Dark Mode setting.
