Puzzle Pursuit: Dive
San Diego, CA
This year we take you deep into the ocean with DIVE for an unforgettable adventure at Sea World San Diego. An underwater volcano is about to erupt and your team of marine biologists has been tasked with saving the many unique sea creatures found only at this location before they become extinct. Will you be able to complete the mission and escape before the volcano erupts?

mezzacotta Puzzle Competition
This competition involves solving a number of puzzles over a period of a week, during which new puzzles are released daily. The puzzles come with no instructions provided, and are intended to be solved by teams of up to N people.
The competition is open to all comers. The top teams, from anywhere in the world, will win prizes. See the rules for full details.
We are the people who organised the CiSRA Puzzle Competition from 2007 to 2013. CiSRA is not sponsoring the competition any more, but we are still keen puzzle creators and decided to hold a private competition of our own.

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:
The Friday before each event, we post a location puzzle to this web site. The solution to that puzzle will lead you to a local pub/bar/restaurant in your city. Hints will be available here on the site, and you can also e-mail us with questions.
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. Use the feedback link on this web site, find us on Facebook or Twitter, or join our announcements mailing list for more information.

We hope to see you at the bar soon!

Inspired by day-long puzzle hunts from around the world (like DASH, BAPHL, and BANG), DCPHR is a day-long walking event in and/or around DC. Teams of roughly four people compete to solve puzzles of all types, moving from location to location.

The Mastermind Hunt
San Francisco, CA
MUSES OF THE MISSION EDITION
San Francisco's Mission District has long been a hotbed of creative inspiration for thousands. It should come as no surprise then, that there are Creative Muses inhabiting the streets of this neighborhood; spirits of creativity, inspiration, and imagination. But who are they, and what has happened to them? Join us in October to find out! More details coming soon, but for now, mark your calendar for the afternoon of Saturday, October 22nd, and put the word out to your team.
What's That Spell?
An evil wizard has you trapped in his tower. Armed with a handful of scrolls you can't read, spellbooks you can't open, and some mysterious artifacts, can you find a spell that you can use to escape?
This is the solve-at-home version of What's That Spell? This hunt combines pencil-and-paper puzzles with physical artifacts, and it is expected to ship to solvers in November 2016.

WWU Puzzle Hunt
A puzzle hunt is like a scavenger hunt, with puzzles. Teams (4-6 is a nice size) travel on foot about campus (outdoors) solving a collection of puzzles (logic puzzles, word scrambles, trivia, etc.). Lots of prizes will be awarded. Whether your team places first or two hundred and fifty-first, competing in a puzzle hunt is a great way to stretch your mental muscles, bond with your teammates, and have a lot of fun!
We will be adding an OPEN division in 2017. More information forthcoming.
May 6, 2017
DASH 9 will happen on Saturday, May 6, 2017. We have already begun working on the story for DASH 9 and I'm really looking forward to sharing it with you all.
