Puzzle Hunt Calendar
ΣUMS Puzzle Hunt
After a year's hiatus, the ΣUMS Puzzle Hunt is back in 2018!
The ΣUMS Puzzle Hunt was created to encourage people to employ mathematical thinking without having to understand any maths. The puzzles are designed to not require any specialist knowledge and so should be quite accessible for everyone.
Our puzzles range in style from picture and word puzzles, to logic and cryptic puzzles, and everything in between. To get an idea of what to expect, check out the puzzles from our previous puzzle hunts.
This year the hunt kicks off on Monday the 2nd of July, 2018, noon AEST. Be sure to check the rules and FAQ for more information.

a city near you?
New York, NY
Lollapuzzoola is a crossword tournament held annually in New York City. Puzzles are commissioned especially for Lollapuzzoola, and made by the best puzzle makers around. Since its inception in 2008, Lollapuzzoola has grown to be the largest annual tournament in New York, and the second largest in the world.
We also offer an At-Home Divison ticket, for those who can't make it to NYC. Those puzzles will be available as a downloaded PDF shortly after the live tournament.

The Mastermind Hunt
San Jose, CA
Giant monsters (Kaiju) are closing in on San Jose! Where do they come from? What do they want? We don't know, but it probably involves reducing the city to rubble! Determining how to stop them will be a bit of a puzzle, but you and your team may be the only ones who can save us. Mark your calendars for the morning of Saturday, September 8, 2018 and stand by for more details.
Puzzle Boat 5
Pandamonium Alpha is a medium-scale puzzle event featuring 30+ puzzles and multiple metas. Expect it to be smaller than a Puzzle Boat and larger than an issue of P&A.
