Puzzle Hour - Jan 24th 2024 at Club Paramatta

The first ever Puzzle Hour event at Club Paramatta was held! Thanks to the club for providing the space.

15 Teams of puzzlers and 1 brave solo puzzler came together to take on the challenge of Speed Puzzling! There was a great range of demographics and skill levels represented, so it was great to see many people trying their hand at this fun concept! We welcomed many teams and puzzlers who are quickly becoming regulars and many new friendly faces as well!

Warm-Up Round

The puzzles for tonight were ordered from QPuzzles, a fantastic Australian Puzzle manufacturer. For the warm-up round the puzzlers raced to create this cute and colourful Kookaburra out of 121 pieces! The winners Puzzle Misfits, featuring two of our reigning champions and some new recruits, took out the Warm-Up Round in 7 minutes flat! First timers Team Di and Fry'Day Puzzlers getting the Silver and Bronze.
