ΣUMS Puzzle Hunt
After being pushed back by clashing puzzle competitions, exams, conferences, and more, we have just managed to sneak the ΣUMS Puzzle Hunt week into 2016!
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.

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!

MIT Mystery Hunt
Jan 15, 2017 6:00p
The MIT Mystery Hunt is a puzzlehunt competition that takes place on the MIT campus every year during the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend. The hunt challenges each participating team to solve a large number of puzzles which lead to an object (called a “coin”) hidden somewhere on campus. The winning team gets to write the subsequent year’s hunt.

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.
