Teams of 3 or 4 players will test their puzzling skills against up to 6 other teams as they race to complete the same 500 piece puzzle! The winning team gets a puzzle of their choice for each member and each team gets to keep to puzzle they just worked on.
The competition takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours (depending on the difficulty of the puzzle) but usually produces a winner in around an hour and a half.
Many strategies have emerged including feeding pieces to the best puzzler, bringing sorting trays, yelling, drawing on the ancient wisdom of Grandma, drinking, fasting, and even being over confident. Despite all of these excellent strategies, and some teams tending to be faster than others, there is no one group that has gone undefeated.
