Is this site more for a specific niche of people, or can anyone participate in solving the kinds of puzzles I've come across? Most seem to make very obscure references and wordplay that's inaccessible to a beginner like me. I realize the point isn't to make questions accessible... Otherwise most people would be able to solve them. But then what's the point? Effectively you end up catering to only a small percentage of people who actually understand what you're going on about.
Where do I begin improving my puzzle-solving skills if all the puzzles are so difficult?
