No Puzzled Pint in Your City?

Host a Puzzled Pint Party with your friends!

Puzzled Pint Parties are great one-off events where you re-run one or more previous events for friends and family.

All of our puzzles are released under a Creative Commons license. You can browse the full archives, print out puzzles and solve them with your friends. For beginners, we suggest you start here: http://www.puzzledpint.com/puzzles/may-2014/

As long as you're not trying to represent yourself as Puzzled Pint and you stick within the flexible licensing, you're free to run parties without asking permission. But it warms our hearts to hear of them. If you run a party, we'd love to know.

Fun Fact: London's Puzzled Pint started because someone ran a Puzzled Pint party. Folks got hooked on puzzles and now it's an official location that regularly exceeds 70 attendees (as of early 2016).

Here’s what it’s all about:

The Core Tenets of Puzzled Pint

Puzzled Pint must be:

Events happen on the second Tuesday of every month. We post a location puzzle online the weekend before, and the solution leads to a local bar. At the bar, the hosts ("Game Control") hand out the month's puzzles (usually 4-5), and are prepared to hint puzzlers as needed. We encourage teams to take hints, as we want to keep PP friendly for beginners. There are no penalties for hints. We do post the start/end times on this web site, but most teams don't pay attention to them.

How much work is it?

What we provide to you, the city Game Control (GC):

What you provide locally:

We're pretty flexible with how you customize Puzzled Pint to your city, as long as it adheres to our core tenets as described above.

How do I find out more?

E-mail gamecontrol@puzzledpint.com. We'll schedule a time to group video-chat with you and any co-conspirators you might have. If you don't, we'll try to help put out the word that your city needs another volunteer.

We encourage all new cities to have at least two GC members before they start organizing official events. In the meantime, definitely feel free to run a Puzzled Pint Party (see above for details)!
