Puzzle Hunt Calendar
UK Open Puzzle & Sudoku Tournaments
This year's UK Open tournaments will take place over the weekend 25-26 February 2017, once again at the Selsdon Park Hotel in Croydon. This is the venue that we used for the 2014 World Championships, and the 2014-16 UK Opens.
This growing annual event is a must for anyone with an interest in puzzles or sudoku. Although there will be a competition element to the weekend, more importantly it is the annual opportunity to mix with others sharing your interests in a relaxing environment.

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.

Tesla's Lost Experiment
"Tesla's Lost Experiment" is a one-day puzzle hunt which originally ran in February 2016 at Tesla STEM HS in Redmond, WA. It was constructed by parents and students, including veteran designers of the Microsoft Puzzle Hunt and MIT Mystery Hunt. It was designed for high school students, but should be enjoyable by people of all ages who like puzzles. The hunt was designed for teams of 4-5 people working (mostly) in a classroom for approximately 6 hrs (time may vary with skill level.)
We are replaying this event for Google employees and the general puzzle community at Google Kirkland. The replay of the event will start at 10AM March 25, at Google Kirkland Campus, Building A. We will try to replay as much of the flavor of the original event as possible but the production will be scaled back a bit since many of the students are unavailable. The event is being run with a "just for fun" slant, but we may have a few minor prizes to share.

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.
Apr 29 10:30a-5:00p
Join us for a fun, interactive event that will have you solving puzzles around the Museum of the Earth on a quest through time. Compete against other teams in solving puzzles of all kinds: code-breaking, word, number, visual puzzles, and everything in between!
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.
