Puzzled Pint is coming to Toronto March 10th, brought to you by Ryan of Lockquest. To explain, Puzzled Pint takes place on the second Tuesday of every month. It’s a casual free puzzle solving event that takes place in 16 cities in North America. On March 6th, a ‘location’ puzzle is posted. When you solve that puzzle, it’ll bring you to a URL which will reveal the address of the local bar/pub. On March 10th, you and your team will go to that bar/pub and solve a series of fun puzzles! Volunteers (Ryan and co.) will be on hand to give out hints if they are necessary. Times will be taken down, and standings will be uploaded HERE.
