The Rook Room's A Very Merry Puzzlepalooza Jigsaw Puzzle Competition Des Moines, Iowa Event Image

A Very Merry Puzzlepalooza at Peace Tree Brewing

Wednesday, December 18 @ 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Grab your favorite festive friends, pile into the sleigh, and keep the Snow Miser at bay at Des Moines’ hottest jigsaw competition with a little extra ho ho holiday cheer.

The Rook Room’s extremely popular jigsaw puzzle competition, Puzzlepalooza, is back and merrier than ever with A Very Merry Puzzlepalooza on Wednesday, December 18th at Peace Tree Brewing – Des Moines Branch.

Check-in begins at 6:00 PM and the competition begins promptly at 6:30 PM.

For those who haven’t been to a Puzzlepalooza before, teams of up to four face off in a race to be the first to complete their 500-piece puzzle. Sound easy? Don’t be deceived because the competition is stiff and we throw in more twists than a candy cane with the opportunity to sabotage the other teams.

However, this isn’t your average Puzzlepalooza. This is our second annual A Very Merry Puzzlepalooza! Not only will we have a holly jolly holiday-themed puzzle for you to piece together, but this special edition of our jigsaw puzzle competition will also feature presents, an ugly sweater contest, and a special holiday-themed sabotage.

We’ll have prizes for the best overall ugly sweaters.

Add in some amazing, local, Peace Tree craft beer plus special holiday drinks and this is an experience you don’t want to miss! Once you finish your puzzle, feel free to hang out and enjoy the cozy, very merry vibes.

Reservations are required and space is limited. Cost for this special edition of Puzzlepalooza is $50 per team of up to 4 players and includes the puzzle, which is yours to keep, and team costume contest entry. Only one registration is required per team.

Grab some of your best puzzle fiends and friends and register today for Des Moines’ jolliest jigsaw competition!
