This event’s theme is Over the Garden Wall and is brought to you by Max Howard and the GameHaus puzzle hunt team of Sunnyvale, California, USA.

Max works as a software engineer and spends their free time on competitive quidditch, pickleball, climbing, games, and writing/solving puzzles.

Max has had a lifelong love of puzzles and started puzzlehunting in 2017. After a few years writing puzzles for friends, 2023 was Max’s breakout into writing puzzles for a broader audience with this Puzzled Pint and a Space Invaders-like game for Google Puzzle Hunt. Max particularly likes interactive puzzles, and is learning to develop games for bigger projects in the future.

GameHaus is a community of friends who like playing board games and puzzle hunting together, some of whom helped create this set! A special thanks to Rory Cranston for the original artwork, Jeff Hemphill for co-writing the logic puzzles, and Kris Lawton, Cloie Logan, and Jandro Alderman for concepting, prototyping, and playtesting.

Special thanks to Jean Richardson and Isaac Kasukonis of Portland, Oregon, USA for the 2023 meta-meta!
