New twist: Teams will need to assemble their puzzles "blind." No reference image provided!
  • The competition will take place in-store at Bolen Books on March 28th, beginning at 11:00 AM and ending at 1:00 PM.
     
  • If no team has completed their puzzle by 1:00 PM, we will extend the competition for up to, but no longer than, 2:00 PM. If no team has finished by 2:00 PM we will award the teams that have the most pieces assembled.
     
  • Teams will consist of 4 team members (all ages welcome). If you lose a team member before the event for any reason you are still welcome to compete with 2 or 3 members, but you do so at your own disadvantage.
     
  • Every team will receive the same 500 piece Ravensburger puzzle at the start of the competition. The puzzle image will not be made available at any point.
     
  • Hands only, no aids (flashlights, phones, tablets, etc.) Sorting trays are ok.
  • Each team will be provided their own dedicated table, and are permitted to bring up to 2 chairs.
  • Puzzles must be completed in full by the teams only. Onlookers cannot help teams with the completion of their puzzle and should, under no circumstance, intentionally distract any of the teams.
  • Participants may not intentionally distract other teams or impede their progress in any way.
  • There will be no scheduled break time during the competition.
  • Snacks and drinks are permitted, but please take any garbage or food scraps with you.
  • Team uniforms are encouraged! 
     
  • We ask that every team please bring a donatable item for the Mustard Seed.
