Boat Building

Posted on

It’s been two days since the storm carried you to this desert island and threw you against the rocks. You managed to crawl ashore, but your little wooden sailboat was destroyed–luckily, you salvaged all the pieces before they became driftwood, but they’ve been damaged. First, complete the pieces, then drag them into place and rebuild your boat to find out where you plan to have your first meal once you return to civilization (4, 4)! The first piece has been repaired already.

Next Season

Season 2 of Mission Street Puzzles will start on February 7th. A few notes:

  • The season will last for 12 weeks, with the same structure as this season–new puzzles every week.
  • One upcoming change: we will allow teams to submit answers for past weeks for as long as the season is still running. For example, if you’re out of town for a week and you miss a puzzle, you can just submit it the next week with a later solve time. All submissions will just be due by the last day of the season. This should open things up, and also make it easier on teams that want to start partway through the season.
  • We are also excited to announce that starting next season, answers will be in cities other than San Francisco! We’re picturing an around-the-world puzzle journey, with each season bringing us to new places. We’re already working on this and are really excited about how it’s looking.

For more updates on the next season, please like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. See you in February!
