Puzzle Potluck is an online puzzle hunt consisting of a set of puzzles and a metapuzzle.
Puzzle Potluck is a concept by a group of passionate puzzlers that wanted to write puzzles for each other. The idea was to collectively create a puzzle hunt, potluck style, by combining individual puzzles written by each puzzler. After holding several potlucks, we decided to run a hunt for the rest of the world to solve!

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 (link above).
How to play: the Friday before each event, we post a location puzzle to our web site. The solution to that puzzle will lead you to a local pub/bar/restaurant in your city. Hints will be available online!
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.
We hope to see you at the bar soon!
Caltech Puzzle Hunt
The first Caltech Puzzle Hunt is coming up on November 30, 2018! It was constructed by members of The Team Formerly Named Team To Be Named Later.
In the Caltech Puzzle Hunt, teams will compete to solve a series of puzzles. Teams can have a maximum of eight members, at most four of whom consider themselves experienced puzzle hunters. One of the main challenges of puzzle hunts is that these puzzles will not come with instructions. Figuring out what you are trying to accomplish in order to solve the puzzle is part of the challenge.
The puzzle hunt is open to everybody worldwide, although a small number of puzzles may require knowledge of the Caltech campus or even on-campus presence. Prizes will be awarded to the first teams which include Caltech students as some of their members.
