Joining the National Puzzlers’ League

Members of the NPL enjoy access to many web site resources including downloadable copies of the League’s monthly publication, The ENIGMA. Members may also have an email alias and access to the League’s email lists.

Membership in the National Puzzlers’ League is $23 per year. Membership includes a subscription to The ENIGMA (12 monthly issues). A large print edition is available in North America for an additional $7. Members outside North America, add $7 for international postage. If you would like to forego the printed Enigma, there is an $8 discount on membership.

If you are willing to be contacted by email and/or by phone, please provide your email address and phone number when you join, and they will be announced in the next issue of The ENIGMA and published in the next NPL Directory.

Existing members of the NPL can renew with a credit card payment on our web site. Currently, new members must use PayPal or mail a check to the Treasurer as described above. To join using PayPal, use the links below. Please include your home address in the message to vendor or a “ship to” box and we’ll mail your subscription there. To select a nom, purchase a gift membership, or for anything unusual, email with your information.

Once you’ve sent off your first dues to the treasurer, you’re going to wonder what happens next. Fairly quickly, you’ll receive your welcome package with the latest three issues of The ENIGMA. Each issue has a two month solving window, so you can verify your solutions to the puzzles in the oldest issue with the solutions appearing in the most recent issue. Many members send in their solutions, either from solo or team solving, and track their solving statistics. Instructions on how to send in your solutions are in every issue. You’ll also want to explore this web site and at least lurk on the NPL-FOLK mailing list for a while to meet other NPLers.
