We are a small but growing group of jigsaw puzzle fans here in the Portland area, and like most of you, none of us really have any interest in doing the same puzzle a second time.  (And it always seems like such a shame to sell a perfectly good puzzle at a garage sale for twenty-five cents!)

The group started in 2006 with the idea that it would be great to have a place to trade our completed puzzles with our friends for ones we haven’t done yet. Thus,the Portland Puzzle Exchange was born! It has been volunteer-run ever since by a succession of puzzle lovers who have stepped in as previous coordinators have passed away or moved.

How does it work?

See our How Things Work Page for all the ins and outs of puzzle exchanges.

We get together twice a month, alternating between two locations. See our When and Where page

The more folks we add, the more diverse the range of puzzles we’ll all have to work our way through!
