Killer Puzzles

"Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle." – Lewis Carroll
 
Puzzles, riddles, and problems to solve…  This category will be used to taunt you will a puzzle or talk about what is going on in my world of problems to solve.  It may interest some and bore most 🙂 
 
Annually I participate on a puzzle hunt team where we create a team of 12 people and lock ourselves in a room for roughly 32 hours.  Sound like fun?  For some it would be insanity but for others it is like being in a video game where you are the character racing against the timer to try and come out victorious. 
 
Puzzle hunts are pretty popular in several companies.  Not sure if the common factor is the number of geeks who are in the company or not.
 
 
There are also a lot of online places where you can solve puzzles and compete for points.
 
A new place that just launched online is called http://www.killerpuzzles.com/ and anyone can play.  Last year the owner of this site launched another online game to promote a movie.  That site is now closed but was called http://www.gpsthegame.com/ I came in 22nd place overall I believe and ended up winning tickets to a reality adventure that will be happening in June.  The ultimate puzzle hunt where you are emersed into a 4 day adventure given a map and very little information to start with.  I am guessing it will be like a shortened version of Amazing Race or something similar.
