Program Description


Puzzle Dash: A Speed Puzzle Competition (NWL)

Open to ages 12 and up

Are you ready to puzzle? Join us for a speed puzzle competition at the Noah Webster Library on Saturday, June 1 at 11:00 AM. Teams of 4 members will compete for prizes to complete a 500 piece puzzle in the shortest time! The 3 top teams win prizes. Open to ages 12 and up.

The rules:

Each team can consist of up to four (4) members, ages 12 and up. All teams receive the identical 500-piece puzzle. Only the team captain registers, and they register for the whole team (Team Captain: please list team members’ first names in the field provided in this registration form.) If you are unable to attend, please email Kirsten at kkilbourn@westhartfordct.gov so that teams who are on the waitlist can be contacted.
Competition Format:

  1. Each team receives the same puzzle. 
  2. No one gets to see the puzzle until the timer begins. The puzzle boxes will be placed in the middle of the table with a cover over them. 
  3. Teams try to put the puzzle together the fastest. 
  4. The competition will last two hours. If there is no declared winner by the end of the time limit, the winner is chosen by their remaining number of loose pieces. 
  5. There are no devices or outside assistance permitted while working on a puzzle. 
  6. A moderator will handle the timer and completion times and will observe and ensure that competitors are abiding by the rules. 
  7. Individuals and teams are not allowed to distract or approach team tables when the competition is in progress.
