About Joe

Joe is not Leon

Anyone who's played the original Clutter game knows a little bit about Joe. Joe is not Leon, but some of the details of Joe's life were worked into the story. Here are just some of the real facts of Joe's almost 60 years of life.

Joe was born in a little town called Penacook N.H., a voting district of Concord N.H. but a separate town (population was about 3000 back then). Joe attended Immaculate Conception School until 6th grade and then attended Merrimack Valley High School. Joe decided to attend Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY in 1979 with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. Joe only took one computer course at RPI.

Joe moved on to work at iWin creating the highly successful Mah Jong Quest I, II and III (and little game called Sproink). After leaving iWin at the end of 2009 to work on his own games he joined an Atlanta Slots/Gaming company beginning in 2011 and ending in 2013. Joe now devotes 100% of his time to Puzzles By Joe and The Clutter Series.

    I have your clutter 3 and am stumped on the jigsaw puzzle. under the letter “L’s 11 there is a puzzle of llamas that i worked twice. but the “ok” button never comes up when i finish. wherefore the number of the puzzle stays on 24 when it should move to 25. this is frustrating . why won’t it finish w/ ok? hopefully i can get ur solution through my email.

      Hi Linda:

      Can you send me a screen shot.
      It usually means that there is still a piece or two that’s not quite in the right spot (even though it might look like it is).
      But there could be a real bug.
      If you could try again…and then send me a screen shot, then I might be able to tell you what’s going on.
