Puzzlepalooza: Rest in Pieces at Peace Tree Brewing

Wednesday, October 23 @ 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Don’t miss Des Moines’ most popular and most intense jigsaw puzzle competition with a spooky twist – Puzzlepalooza: Rest in Pieces!

OooooOOoOoOo! It’s all about fiends, frights, a just a touch of deadly sabotage at Puzzlepalooza!

The Rook Room’s extremely popular jigsaw puzzle competition, Puzzlepalooza, is back and spookier than ever on Wednesday, October 23rd 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 just a little twist: the opportunity to sabotage the other teams.

However, this isn’t your average Puzzlepalooza. Puzzlepalooza: Rest in Pieces returns again this year to haunt your nightmares! Not only will we have a frighteningly fun Halloween-themed puzzle for you to piece together, but this special edition of our jigsaw puzzle competition will also feature a team costume contest and a new, scary sabotage.

Team costumes are highly encouraged. We’ll have prizes for the best overall costumes and the best gaming-themed costumes.

Add in some amazing, local, Peace Tree craft beer and this is an experience you don’t want to miss! Once you finish your puzzle, feel free to hang out and enjoy the spooky 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’ scariest jigsaw competition!
