Puzzle Day Pre-Event this Saturday – Come watch Wordplay with us!

Posted on: January 22, 2009

Those of you who know me recognize that in the weeks leading up to our annual Silicon Valley Puzzle Day event (this year on Feb 7 – 8 ) I tend to get a bit obsessed with crosswords and sudoku and the posts and links here get very puzzle-dominated.  Well, we’re definitely in full gear right now as we count down the last 2 weeks before the main event, which this year has grown to be an entire weekend of puzzle fun!

In addition to the workshops (all day Saturday, Feb 7) and the crossword and sudoku tournaments (Sunday, Feb 8 ) — to which we’ve added bonus competitions of Killer Sudoku and Cryptic Crosswords — we’ve added two more events to the lineup:

Free showing of Wordplay, the documentary starring Will Shortz, Jon Stewart, Bill Clinton, the Indigo Girls, and more, that inspired us to start Puzzle Day (and which is one of my favorite movies). Attend this new Puzzle Day event to get in the puzzling mood with your friends and neighbors at the showing this Saturday, Jan. 24, at 3 pm in the program room of the Morgan Hill Library.

• Also new this year, come to our Puzzle Party on Saturday, Feb. 7, from 6pm to 10 pm at the Morgan Hill Ramada Inn. Tickets are $40 each and benefit the newly formed Morgan Hill Library Foundation. Whether you’re a puzzle lover who wants to rub elbows with four-time American Crossword Tournament Champion Tyler Hinman, or just want to enjoy the company of fellow Morgan Hill residents who support the library, it promises to be a wonderful evening.  (Check out this great WIRED article about Tyler)

More information about all of these events are available at – and of course you’ll be hearing a lot more about them from me here.
