It's sort of both - mainly "tome" as in book (hence the logo), but also "to me" as a play on words.

I will admit that I didn't even see the play on words until the other day, always thought of it as puzzle tome, but have wondered about it since I saw the other way.

Well - I say Puzzletome to rhyme with "dome" or "Rome".

Xyphic is the creator of the name, and it was done with express intention of being ambiguous. Therefore, for both pronunciation and the way of perceiving it, 'Puzzle To Me' and 'Puzzle Tome' are both correct.

And if you want to say 'Puzzle Tom E' you can do that as well. Smile
