Stuck Indoors? Here's How to Keep Puzzling

For those safely at home, I imagine you want to keep your mind occupied as we get through these uncertain times. Since it seems best to avoid ordering things at the moment (we gotta think of those postal workers and delivery men too!) I thought it would be good to compile a list of puzzle resources and games that can be played online/at home.


I am also aiming to post a new puzzle online once a week for the foreseeable future, so keep an eye out on the PostCurious Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. The first one is at the bottom of this post!
