Puzzled Pint Zurich
Paul & Mark host the Zurich, Switzerland edition of Puzzled Pint, a casual, social puzzle solving event which happens at bars/pubs on the second Tuesday of every month in multiple cities around the world. Come and join us!
The theme for May's Puzzled Pint is "Taco Tuesday".
Tuesday 9 May 2023. We will be there to welcome you from 7pm until 10pm.
This month we're at The Alehouse – Palmhof, Universitätstrasse 23, 8006 Zurich (Google map). It's just up the road from ETH Zentrum and the nearest tram stop is ETH/Universitätsspital.
Where is Puzzled Pint held
The location of Puzzled Pint changes each month. This month we're at The Alehouse – Palmhof, Universitätstrasse 23, 8006 Zurich (Google map). It's just up the road from ETH Zentrum and the nearest tram stop is ETH/Universitätsspital.
Can't find us on the night? Drop Paul a line over email on firstname.lastname@example.org or keep an eye on Paul's Twitter, where you can find him lurking under the guise of @PuzzleTrailPaul, or on Mastodon as @email@example.com where he runs a daily quiz and posts a whole other load of nonsense.
Do I need to be there for the whole 3 hours?
Nope, it's all very casual, but Paul & Mark will be available to hand out puzzles and hints during those times. Depending as to how seasoned a puzzler you are you can expect to take around 2 hours to work through all the puzzles, but you don't have to finish them all on the night (or at all).
Do I need a team?
Teams of 3-5 people tend to work best for these puzzles, but feel free to come alone and we'll help slot you into a team on the night.
How much does it cost?
Puzzled Pint is free to play. Any food and drink you choose to consume is on you, though (and if you feel like buying your friendly game controllers a drink then we aren't going to stop you).
What sort of puzzles are they?
If you have ever taken part in a Puzzle Hunt then you will have a good idea what to expect. The puzzles tend to have a number of parts and may incorporate traditional puzzles like crosswords, word searches, cryptograms, word play and logic problems. Even if you have never done anything like this before, if you like any sort of logic or word puzzle, or enjoy watching the TV show Only Connect you’ll like these.
To get a proper idea, you can download and try some puzzles from the archive.
Note: Puzzled Pint is a neither run by or sponsored by Puzzle Trail, but they do provide a free home for the Zurich website plus printing, so why not go check them out and see what they have to offer – there's some standalone puzzles to try out plus some free urban escape trails to play in and around Zurich.
