Minneapolis, MN

Event takes place at 10:00 AM on May 18.

What is DASH?

DASH is a one-day team-based puzzle-solving race, that will happen in 15 cities! Puzzles will involve logic, lateral thinking, wordplay, and more cleverness!


10am on Saturday, May 18th, 2013! Yes, this is the last day of finals on the U of M campus. Hopefully you can still make it!

Where is it?

The Minneapolis DASH 5 will be taking place in and around the U of M Campus. The exact starting location will be announced to registered teams two weeks before the event (May 4th).

How long is it?

The event will start at 10:00am and wrap up around 6:00pm, Central Standard Time. Experienced teams may finish faster.

How many people should be on my team?

The optimal size for a team is 3-5 players. More than 5 and it gets difficult for everyone to collaborate - we highly encourage aiming for 4. If you need help assembling a team, email us!

How much does it cost?

The Minneapolis DASH 5 registration fee will be $8 per person to cover costs. Payment instructions will be sent to registered teams. If that is too much for you, please let us know so we can arrange something - we still want you to play.

What about the weather?

Please come prepared for the weather. Every effort will be made to make sure locations will have indoor puzzle-solving space - but you will be walking outside for much of the day, so be prepared.

How much physical activity is involved?

Expect to walk 2 miles over the course of the day, with many stops for solving.

What should I bring?

Paper, pens and pencils, scissors, tape, ruler.

A cell phone that can make calls.

Clipboards, sharpie, colored pens/pencils are also often helpful.

Smartphone/Reference materials - If you need to Google something and don't have a smartphone, feel free to ask Game Control for help and we will be happy to act as your Google proxy.

Food and water - a few stops will be at/near cafes, but puzzling takes lots of energy, so stay well-fueled. Cash is also a good idea.

Good walking shoes and weather-friendly atire.

Be prepared!
