I am not very good at puzzles and was wondering if there was a way to search puzzles only by difficulty? I figure I may be able to figure out ones aimed towards kids.

You can sort a list of caches by their difficulty by clicking on the D in the D/T column at the top of the list.

You could also take a look at this cache http://coord.info/GC2J093 which is the Freshman year puzzle academy challenge. It includes a nice selection of puzzles.

This book mark http://www.geocaching.com/bookmarks/view.aspx?guid=4e691542-283c-4f45-ba57-0949d801ead1 for the "course work" includes some nice comment and tips on how to work on the puzzles.

what part of the state do you live in? I'm sure wherever it is, there are some local puzzlers who would point you in the direction of some straightforward puzzles. If you lived by me I know I would.

It'd be easier to join the local Phone-a-friend network. Laughing

Thanks everyone, I live in the north metro, Blaine to be exact but I work around the whole 7 county metro so I try to cache everywhere. I think with this Info I should be able to get a good feel for a few puzzles. I am sure It will all help, before I had no idea where to even start. Thanks again,

Andy

I would really recommend the puzzle acacemy -- not only easier puzzle but it teaches you some tricks. I suck at puzzles myself but it's annoying when they are the only ones left near home.

That's kind of where I am at, the closest caches to me are mostly puzzles. The worst part is looking at a puzzle and having no idea where to start. Some easier sudukoish ones have been fun to do while watching tv or getting ready for bed.
