Who: Student, faculty, or staff teams of 1-6

When: April 22-30th, on your own time (during open building hours)

How to participate: Send your answers and a photo or video of your team in front of one of the RWKC puzzles. Use one of our puzzle guides for helpful hints, available at the RWKC (under the main stairs) or on our website. Please follow all physical distancing and space occupancy guidelines as you participate.

Contact: Email with your answers and photos, or tag us in your picture on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Please do NOT post any puzzle answers to social media! DMs are okay.
