- Get together a team of friends–we recommend two to six people.
- Each week’s puzzle is released on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. PT.
- When you solve the puzzle, immediately email firstname.lastname@example.org with your team name and puzzle answer, which will be a restaurant, bar, or other location in San Francisco. If correct, the email timestamp is your official solve time.
- You will receive a reply email within 24 hours telling you whether your answer is correct.
- If you visit that local spot, feel free to email us a photo of yourselves hanging out there! We’ll share some of the photos in our weekly recap and Instagram gallery.
- T-shirt prizes are available for winners, as well as a randomly selected team! If you’ve already won a T-shirt, you’ll receive another color after five wins.
- You may email email@example.com asking for hints, which will be provided at our discretion–in general, hints will be provided more generously as the week goes on.
- Not based in SF? Feel free to submit answers online anyway! You’ll still be qualified for the leaderboard and weekly Fastest Solver shoutout.
