Of course there will be games and puzzles!

Paper Games and Puzzles

We will have the usual array of paper games and puzzles in the registration packets. Thank you, Freya!

These will be available Friday evening and all day Saturday. This year we will have a dedicated guest room for tabletop gaming.

Codenames

This is a wonderful team game, currently the #1 Party Game on BoardGameGeek. It is easy to learn, even for new players. And it is better with big teams.

Rummikub

We have several people attending who thoroughly enjoy this game. It is the sort of game where someone makes such a brilliant move to win, you can’t even be annoyed at losing.

Unlock!

Have you wanted to try an escape room? Unlock! is an escape room in a box. Gather a few friends and see how quickly you can solve the puzzles. To play, you need to download the “Unlock!” escape adventures app to your smartphone or tablet. Once you have the app, you do not need to be connected to the Internet to play the game. Demos are shorter than full-length games (30 minutes versus 60 minutes). Playing the tutorial and at least one easy demo before attempting the more difficult modules is highly encouraged.

Modules we will have and their difficulty level:

Tutorial — easy

5th Avenue (demo) — easy

Doo-Arann's Dungeon (demo) — easy

The Elite (demo) — medium

The Temple of Ra (demo) — hard

The Formula — medium

Squeek & Sausage — medium

The Island of Doctor Goorse — hard (and best with at least 4 people)
