Washington, DC

Event takes place at 11:00 AM on May 18.

How long is the hunt?

The puzzle hunt is expected to last from about 11am to 6:30pm or so. The event will be punctuated by multiple opportunities to eat, use the restroom, etc.

What size do teams need to be?

We highly recommended a team size of 3-5 people, as the puzzles have been designed to be at an appropriate difficulty for that size of team. However, smaller or larger teams will not be excluded. There will be an opportunity at the start of the hunt for lone solvers to meet and form teams on site.

How much does it cost to participate?

The hunt is $40 per team.
