Pablo's Armchair Treasure Hunt
Somewhere in England
Armchair Treasure Hunt 2020
A scrap of paper has just been found discarded outside the Apopheniac cave ???
Welcome to Pablo’s Armchair Treasure Hunt! This annual hunt has been running since 1985. Just before Christmas, a setting team buries or hides a small box somewhere in England, and posts on this website a set of elaborate puzzles and clues that reveal the hiding place. The challenge is to be the first to unearth the box, which usually takes a dedicated team anywhere from a week to a month.

Royal Statistical Society Xmas Quiz (solve puzzles, help good causes!)
For the last 27 years, the Royal Statistical Society has published a brain-melting Christmas Quiz to baffle and entertain puzzle fans over the festive break – and this year is no exception. You’ll need a combination of general knowledge, logic, and lateral thinking skills to successfully crack these puzzles – but as always, no specialist mathematical knowledge is required.
This year’s edition, devised by RSS quizmaster Dr Tim Paulden, will run through till 31 January 2021 – giving you plenty of time to give the puzzles a whirl. And to shake things up further, some slightly easier puzzles have been sprinkled throughout the quiz, as a starting point for newcomers.
Entry is free and open to all, and if you manage to achieve a score of 50% or higher, you’ll win a donation to your favourite charity or good cause, and your name (or team name) will appear on our 2020 prize-winners' page.
UMD Puzzle Club is holding its annual puzzlehunt! Teams of up to 6 solvers will work through over 20 puzzles. Visit our site to register and view our archive to look at our past hunts.

Puzzled Pint is NORMALLY 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).
In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, Puzzled Pint will not be endorsing any physical Puzzled Pint events. However, we have given our local Game Control volunteers the option of hosting virtual events. We will make each month's puzzles available on the second Tuesday. As Puzzled Pint is a world-wide event, we will post the puzzles on the Puzzled Pint website at the following time. Hints and solutions to the puzzles will be posted 24 hours later.
New Zealand - 6pm Tue
Great Britain - 7am Tue
Eastern US/Can - 2am Tue
Pacific US/Can - 11pm Mon
For questions, comments, or hints during the event, please contact your local GC, or email email@example.com if they are not available.

MIT Mystery Hunt
MIT Puzzle Club and the ✈✈✈ Galactic Trendsetters ✈✈✈ are thrilled to announce that the 41st annual MIT Mystery Hunt will begin at noon ET on Friday, January 15th, 2021. Wrap-up will take place at noon ET on Monday, January 18th, 2021.
The safety and well-being of all Mystery Hunt participants is our top priority, and world events currently make it impossible to gather in a safe manner. As a result, this year's hunt will be held remotely, rather than on MIT’s campus as usual.
While this means that Mystery Hunt may feel different than in the past, our team is excited at the opportunity to reinvent Hunt for a new medium. The Hunt will be similar in length and difficulty to recent Mystery Hunts, and we are confident that it will be especially fun and innovative. We have a lot of surprises in store that we can’t wait to share with you.
