Chihuahua daily online word puzzle

New address for alternate Chihuahua site

4 May 2016

In 2012 an alternate Chihuahua website was introduced, as a fallback in situations where the main site was unavailable or not working properly. This alternate address is now changing, from www.chipuzzle.com to www.chihuahua-puzzle.com. For the time being the old address will still be usable, and will redirect you to the new address.

Behind the scenes, the new address will take you to a server located in the USA, so if you are in the Northern Hemisphere this address may load faster than chi.lexigame.com, which is hosted in Australia.

As before, you can play at whichever of the Chihuahua addresses you find most responsive, and switch between them whenever you wish. All the moves you make should be recorded on both while things are working normally.

There are links to both addresses just below the puzzle area, and an "Alt. site" button near the Reset button at the bottom right of the layout. But if you want to be as certain as possible of always being able to get your Chihuahua fix, you can bookmark both of the addresses.
