Puzzled Pint
Tuesday February 10, 2015, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Venue:  Do the location puzzle at

Puzzled Pint is a social puzzle solving event which happens on the second Tuesday of every month in a bunch of places: Austin, the Bay Area, Boston, DC, London, Montreal, Chicago, Seattle… and now Brooklyn!

The Friday before each event, we post a location puzzle to The solution to that puzzle will lead you to a local Brooklyn bar.

On the night of the event (2/10), show up at the pub any time between 6PM and 9PM and 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.

Standings will be posted every month, but the goal of Puzzled Pint is for everyone to have fun! You can provide feedback or learn more at
