I ask this question after experiencing Joe Diamond's Magnifying Glass starting item.  When Joe Diamond encounters a puzzle obstacle, if obstacles count as exploring, then he may attempt the puzzle twice.  Is this actually the case?

If so, if he doesn't finish the puzzle on those 2 attempts, then on his next turn attempting the same puzzle obstacle, does this STILL count as exploring and he gets ANOTHER 2 attempts at this puzzle?

Somebody please clarify this for me.

You have to Explore to attempt a puzzle, but can't try twice a turn even with the Mag Glass:

"Each investigator can only attempt the same puzzle once per turn

(but multiple investigators may attempt the same puzzle on the
same turn)." (p. 18)

"A dirty mind is its own reward."
