The 2015 Arlington Puzzle Festival continues the traditions of past years. We’ll begin the day with a group puzzle provided by Todd Etter, local puzzle guru and multiple winner of the Post Puzzle Hunt.
At 10:30, we’ll start the Crossword Puzzle Tournament, again with puzzles provided by Will Shortz, crossword puzzle editor of the New York Times. We’ll have games during lunch, finish the Crossword Tourney, and begin the Sudoku Tournament around 1:45. The Sudoku will be provided again this year by Thomas Snyder, puzzle craftsman and multiple winner of the Sudoku world championships. The day will finish with an OCTO competition and the Sudoku finals. This year, we will have puzzle-related activities for children, including a children’s puzzle competition if there is enough interest.
