years of Kadon Enterprises, Inc., and gamepuzzles for the joy of thinking:   1980-2005

Surviving a quarter century as a small business was no mean feat. We took the whole year 2005 to celebrate, even spilling over into 2006. And thanks to the Internet, we could do so globally.

It was only fitting that we should offer 25 special activities, events, puzzles, contests, surprises, artifacts and memorabilia (listed below, with links). Return here by clicking the silver logos on those pages.

Some of you have known us for many of these 25 years. Come join us now for a trip through our remembrances. Then send us your best or funniest gamepuzzles stories.

The chronological index lists all our games by year of introduction. All the games we've created and published are still here, and they are still as enjoyable and challenging now as when we first released them. Isn't it nice to know some things don't go out of style or favor? If you missed them in the first decades, you can add them to your collection now. See them all on a full-circle Grand Tour, linking sections through playful portals at page bottoms. It starts with our hottest sellers.
