Constable Country Treasure Quest
Stour Valley, UK
Purchase the book of clues, start researching, discover the location of the treasure!
This is a live treasure quest which can only be solved in its entirety by exploring the Stour Valley from Bures to Cattawade. One cash prize of £200.
This is an accessible treasure quest; it's not overly difficult and we are publishing Clue 1 as a taster - see the panel on the left. This sets the level of difficulty; some may be a tad easier, some a little bit more challenging
There are 24 puzzles in the Quest, plus a coded meta-puzzle which needs to be cracked to determine the location of the hidden treasure.
Closing date is 23.59hrs, Sunday 7th July 2019. Draw takes place 12noon Monday 8th July.
Jun 27-Jul 12
Puzzle Tales: Svalbard
You are about to embark on a unique puzzle solving experience with Svalbard, a sci-fi short story by Lavie Tidhar. Travel along with Mai as she explores a utopian post-apocalyptic world and discovers ancient time vaults, forgotten robot enclaves and slumbering super computers. Help her scavenge for old technology in the ruined cities and discover ancient secrets about previous civilizations. Between chapters of the story, you will encounter a variety of different puzzles that you must solve to unlock the next chapter. There are multiple paths through this non-linear story, and many secrets to discover as you play along.

a city near you?
Puzzled Pint is a social puzzle solving event which happens on the second Tuesday of every month in locations around the world! For the current list of PP cities, visit our web site (link above).
How to play: the Friday before each event, we post a location puzzle to our web site. The solution to that puzzle will lead you to a local pub/bar/restaurant in your city. Hints will be available online!
On the night of the event, show up at the pub and we'll have more puzzles for you to solve while you enjoy drinks and food. Most teams take between 30 minutes and 2 hours to solve a typical puzzle set. "Game Control" will be on hand to give hints and verify answers.
Standings will be posted every month, but the goal of Puzzled Pint is for everyone to have fun! We welcome your thoughts on how to improve future events.
We hope to see you at the bar soon!
National Puzzlers' League Convention
It's a four-day convention where many of the most puzzle-mad people in the world gather. Most of them are members of the National Puzzlers' League, the world's oldest puzzlers' organization. As members of this nonprofit organization, we've been solving puzzles nonstop since 1883. (Well, not the same people. But you get the idea.)
BAPHL is the Boston Area Puzzle Hunt League. It is a recurring series of puzzle hunts that take place in the Boston area.
Teams are given difficult puzzles that require various logical, lateral-thinking, and creative skills to solve. There is also an element of exploration which requires teams to visit certain locations during the completion of the event.
The Melbourne University Mathematics & Statistics Society is pleased to announce the return of our annual puzzle hunt! Held entirely online and over ten days, we invite puzzlers of all ability to take part. Please note that our website has changed.
This an instance of “The Game”.
The Miskatonic University Game is a “road rally” puzzle hunt in which teams spend all weekend traveling from location to location in the Greater Boston area solving puzzles.
While it is difficult to fully describe “The Game”, one popular explanation is that it is a 24 to 36 hour west-coast style sequential puzzle hunt in which you and up to five of your closest friends pile into a minivan and travel from location to location solving puzzles. Each time you solve a puzzle you discover the next location, arriving at this location results in being given a new puzzle which in turns leads you to the next location. These events typically have a strong thematic element and The Miskatonic University Game is no exception.
