Hi All,

I haven't been to BGG Con since 2012 and am so excited to finally get back!
I'm a huge PuzzleHunt fan, does anyone know when it will be and how to sign up?

Is there an Official Schedule posted anywhere for Special Events?

Thanks so much!

Here is a direct link to the schedule:

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/BGGCON_Official_Sche...#

There will be a sign up sheet in the lobby at the Con for events that require one. Probably by the elevators.

Edit: For the puzzle hunt you can get a pick-up group by creating or joining an incomplete team. My wife and I usually do this. Feel free to PM me if you would like to coordinate a team in advance.

I've seen that on the schedule, but what is a PuzzleHunt?

You get a big packet of various types of puzzles to solve (usually they avoid anagrams at this one). It's basically a race to complete them, although there is a point system if you don't complete them all.

There's a theme, and usually some kind of meta puzzle to solve based on the answers to the individual puzzles. One year it was a game of battleship instead of a meta puzzle.

Edit: fixed a typo

I heard a rumor the Puzzlehunt might not happen? Anyone heard otherwise?

It's supposed to be happening; Dave and Aaron are taking a year off, but Wei-Hwa Huang has stepped up to the plate.

So; expectations based on the past BGG.con Puzzlehunts might lead one amiss this year, but I've been *extremely* happy with everything puzzle-related that I've experienced that Wei-Hwa has had a hand in.

I really enjoy Dave and Aaron's hunts. But hearing that Wei-Hwa is doing it this year makes me eager to participate.
