Puzzle Hunt Calendar

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!

EPP 16: DeCAThlon III
Anyone who knows me at all well knows which side of the "Cat vs. Dog" rivalry I am on. I am most definitely on Team Cat. With that in mind, I thought it might be fun to do party themed after my favorite animal. This led me to the oh-so-clever idea of doing a De-CAT-hlon.
Apr 2 12:00p-5:00p
Mountain View, CA

May 22 6:00p
Washingon Post Hunt
It is an event more entertaining than “Star Wars,” more challenging than hacking into Sony, more stupefying than the 2016 presidential field. Okay, maybe not that stupefying.
It is Post Hunt 2016, the annual braintease competition held by Washington Post Magazine. Thousands come downtown to solve head-scratcher puzzles and vie for a $2,000 grand prize — and to watch the inventors, Dave Barry, Tom Shroder and Gene Weingarten, race around in Bermuda shorts with maniacal glints in their eyes.
The thing you need to know now is the date: Sunday, May 22. If you want to read about past Hunts, go to https://washingtonpost.com/posthunt
