I am thinking of organizing something like a little puzzle party. I am SO jealous of them Brits having their Midlands one, and some other things as well, and all I know of that we have here is Dutch Open. The other events I know about are all solely speedcubing which is fun as well, don't get me wrong, but it's not the same as meeting with people like you all; people who are also interested in other things than the speedcubing puzzles and love the more intricate side of twisty puzzles as well. Designing, building, solving the amazing ones and all that.

So I was thinking of organizing something which would be held in Noord Brabant, near Zeeland. It's in the early stages, I am mailing a venue to inform about pricing, however I would like to hear if any of you would be interested in meeting up and bringing our various puzzles along :)

It's in Etten-Leur, there are trains going to Roosendaal and Breda from there where you can transfer to a 'bigger' intercity again :)

If you need the more detailed info I put on facebook, let me know and I will mail you the bunch of info. Not everyone has Facebook of course ;)

An update :)

The party will be in two weeks time, I can't wait to see what everyone is going to bring!

I have a small request:

Could you please shoot an email with your name and email address to dutchpuzzleparty(@)gmail.com (remove the parenthesis) and let me know? That way, 1 I will have an idea how many will come and 2 SHOULD something unforeseen happen, then I can contact you all at once and avoid unnecessary travel expenses and such :)


Don't worry, I will use BCC in that case so your email address will remain private

Thanks and see you on the 18th :D

I wish I could come, Etten-Leur is not very far from Belgium, but I have to work on Saturdays. :(

Pity that I learned from this event today and it's not fitting in my schedule.
But: good initiative!

Hope it will be a start for more parties.

Last chance! Tomorrow is the first Dutch Puzzle Party.

This is a great opportunity to meet some fellow puzzlers and maybe even see some puzzles you haven't seen before. :)

It was totally awesome. Very much worth repeating :) I am going to wait on the others where pics are concerned but I took a few, even one minute long movie of what was all on the table among other things.

But thank you thank you to those who came you guys are the best, and a big hug for those who brought me gifts, totally unexpected and a big surprise :D

I understand and this is of course prudent in case someone wishes not to have their picture publicly displayed, but it is also quite cruel to those of us waiting! :) Puzzle only pictures perhaps?
