What is a Puzzle Boat?

A Puzzle Boat is a large-scale solving extravaganza with puzzles that feed into other puzzles, which in turn all feed into one large overall puzzle. Puzzle Boat 4 will include over 150 puzzles and is intended for six to eight solvers.

Time and Date

October 14th, 2017 at 10AM (Arizona time zone). Puzzle Boat 4 will be available from that point onward. The cost per team is $15.


Most of the puzzles are word, trivia, and logic puzzles covering a wide gamut of difficulty and genres.
