About BrainBashers

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, 828 brain teasers, 210 illusions, 33 stereograms, 1,098 30 Seconds puzzles, and 1,831 mazes!

BrainBashers - May 2010

This 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 brought the site up-to-date in terms of freshness, speed, and simplicity.
