This Summer: the 2018 Puzzle Parley in Rochester

This Puzzle Parley is the world's biggest wooden jigsaw puzzle event, held every two years for the last 25 years or so. 

It's on for this summer, July 12-15 in Rochester New York.  

It's a friendly event with a lot of show-and-tell by puzzle collectors and amazing puzzle hand-cutters (putting the "jigsaw" back into "jigsaw puzzle), raffles, auction, cutting demonstrations, and our own puzzle designer Tara Flannery will be floating around as well (80% chance). 

Rumored events this year include:

  • VIP tour of the Strong Museum and its vast puzzle holdings
  • VIP tour of Buffalo Games Factory 
  • Puzzle Historian Anne Williams talk on A Field Guide to Jigsaw Puzzle Identification
  • Puzzle Historian Bob Armstrong talk on Dickens in Puzzles
  • Judy Peterson, How to Design a Jigsaw Puzzle If You Can't Draw
  • Mark Tschida, Making Wood Puzzles Using Veneers
  • Chris Yates, The Making of "Baffler" Puzzles
