What:  Everyone gets shipped the same never-before-seen wood jigsaw puzzle of around 250 pieces, opens up their boxes at the same time on Zoom, and whoever's fastest wins!

Cost:  $55/entry, mostly goes to cover the cost of the wooden jigsaw puzzle, which you keep. You can only participate in one category: Individuals or Pairs. The cost is $55/entry (whether it's for 1 Individual or 1 Pair of puzzlers).

Prizes: Yes! Both for Individual and Team categories

    Answering Kathy’s question of whether there will be an image on the box, the answer is Yes there will be a picture on the box. It will be one of our blue boxes, and the picture will not be huge, but you will have it right there on the box. That will make it easier, but we’re aiming for the fastest puzzlers to be able to complete in 90-120 minutes. After we see how this event goes, we might do a future completely-blind version where you don’t see the picture until you make it.

    Will it be a “mystery puzzle” (no image), or will it come with an image? Just curious.

    Yes, you can mute your Zoom audio while you’re puzzling. You might also try yodeling, which I think is an under-rated coping mechanism in general in the US. As @E_lok44 once tweeted “If a little light yodeling doesn’t solve all your problems, then I don’t know what to tell yoooo-doolee-ooou.” We don’t literally endorse that, as it is of course an over-statement, no one expects yodeling to raise people from the dead or fix the deficit, but it is likely to make you feel a bit better about the problems you can’t solve… Register for the contest by purchasing the Puzzle Contest here: https://www.artifactpuzzles.com/products/april-speed-puzzling-at-home-contest

    After we open our boxes on camera, will we be allowed to mute our Zoom feed? I often sing to myself while I’m puzzling, but I sure don’t want to be heard by anyone else! 🙂

    This looks like a lot of fun!
