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!
Escape from the Cursed Forest
San Francisco, CA
The *one* time you choose to take the path less traveled, you end up in a forest plagued by a witch’s curse. No one has ever made it out alive, but you discover a glimmer of hope: the curse is tied to a spellbound princess who sleeps inside a guarded castle. Freeing her will dispel the curse and allow you to leave this treacherous place. Solve the puzzles, wake the princess, and escape from the cursed forest!

National Puzzlers' League Convention
The NPL Con is 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.)

Berkeley Mystery Hunt (Public Run)
The Berkeley Campus League of Puzzlers invites you to help OskiLeaks

New York, NY
Midnight Madness raises funds for the New York City children’s charity Good Shepherd Services to help at-risk youth achieve their potential. Midnight Madness is open to everyone who can form a team and raise the targeted funds for GSS.
Registration is limited and based on fundraising ability, so get in touch soon! Last year’s game raised over $3 million through sponsorships of 30 teams. Teams largely hailed from ten financial institutions in the tri-state area, but participants joined us from the west coast, overseas, and from outside the financial community.

Puzzle Pursuit: Gold Rush
San Diego, CA
Get ready for the 7th annual Puzzle Pursuit event benefiting Outdoor Outreach. Part Amazing Race and part Sherlock Holmes, Puzzle Pursuit requires out-of-the-box thinking, team work, and high energy.
Welcome to the bustling mining town of Buckeye Hill, where thieving and swindling are as common as finding gold and drinking whiskey. Go in search of the mother lode but keep an eye out for claim jumpers who want nothing more than to steal your gold and leave you with nothing.
