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!

Midnight Madness UK
Coming to London on the 11th May 2019, Midnight Madness is a series of cleverly camouflaged, incredibly ingenious and devilishly difficult puzzles – the answers to which indicate the location of the next puzzle, and so on, until the finish line. Teams will compete all night, hunting for, solving, and executing puzzles embedded in the urban landscape of London. The winning team will be the first to cross the finish line.

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.)
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.
