Puzzled Pint

There are now over forty cities in the Puzzled Pint network, running all around the world! Victoria’s group is coming up to their third full year as a host city. The location varies each month, so you have to keep an eye out to find us… all part of the spirit of the event. Follow us on facebook to find out more. Or get reminder emails via this list.

The Puzzled Pint

  • Teams of 1-6
  • 1-3 Hours

The Puzzled Pint is a social puzzle solving event which happens on the second Tuesday of every month. It’s a worldwide event taking place in cities from Wellington to Vienna to Portland to Victoria. We, at Enigmatic, host and run the event each month. Authors from around the world do the hard work of puzzle setting. The HQ team at puzzledpint.com co-ordinate all the cities to keep the feel of the event the same where ever you go.

How to Get Puzzling

A location puzzle is posted on the Puzzled Pint website prior to the night of the event. Enter the the solution on the webpage, and it will lead you to the name of your local bar. Hints will be available on the website, and you can also e-mail us with questions.

On the night of the event, show up at the specified pub/bar in your city. 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. There’s no prizes, it’s not a competition, but there is the reward of finding the solution in a sudden sense of ‘aha!’.

If you are here in Victoria, see you at the next event!

Additional Info:

This is a free event. Bring paper, pencils, note paper. Scissors, highlighters, and glue are also useful. We’ll provide the puzzles, you buy the pints from our hosts! (If you want to help cover our printing costs, $1 per team does that.)

Location:

The location is revealed each month by a puzzle the Friday before. It will always be a downtown pub or casual ‘pub style’ restaurant, like The Moon Under Water or The Drake.
