Puzzle Hut :

Puzzle freak is a team game and would feature a large variety of hands-on (mechanical) and on-paper puzzles. This will be a themed competition with a number of stages over the course of 3-4 days which will feature many puzzle games and challenges. The puzzle games can be of different types and varying difficulties as you go through the stages.

Phun is a 2D simulation of gravity. A short demo will be provided for participants on usage of the software and the rules and problem statement will be known on the spot.

Apart from this, there will be other games which are basically meant to unwind you at any point of time and will be open for participation most of the time. For example, Laser-Hit where you need to get to the target through a web of laser beams, without blocking any beam. Topology needs superb co-ordination between team members to balance a board mimicking an alien surface to get your rover to the final destination! Come and check out the other games yourself! We have a lot of goodies on offer! All events are on-the-spot.
