PP After Dark – Solutions and More!

Earlier this week, Puzzled Pint Portland was invited to participate in OMSI After Dark, an adults-only nighttime event at a local science museum. The theme was “forensics.” We pulled some thematic puzzles from past months to reprint, and also brought along some surplus copies we had on hand to show people what we’re all about.

There was quite a bit of interest! We started with 100 copies of Brian Enigma’s “What is Puzzled Pint?” info sheet, and ran out of those less than halfway through the evening. OMSI was kind enough to reprint those, as well as more copies of the three featured puzzles:

Brian Hahn himself was on hand to help us tell people about Puzzled Pint, as were regular GCs Matt Shields, Jen Dumont, and yours truly.

As shown in these photos we tweeted, we also pulled out Brian Hahn’s “Paddles” from October 2015 and Andrea Blumberg’s March 2016 Comic Book Mystery as examples of different presentation formats. We’re extremely grateful to all our volunteer puzzle authors who share their creativity with us!

If you were at OMSI After Dark on Wednesday and are looking for solutions to any of the above puzzles, here they are:

Thanks @OMSI for a great #AfterDark event tonight! Hope to see some new puzzlers on May 10th. 🙂 pic.twitter.com/Lsx3VXfq4S
