ircpuzzles! 2024

I’m one of the designers for the yearly April Fools Puzzle Contest on IRC.

Please feel free to join at The idea is that you solve puzzles in a chatroom, and get the password to the next chatroom, and so on. If you’re not familiar with IRC, don’t worry–a link is provided to connect in your browser, too.

It’s a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoy!

P.S. The contest should be up for a while, so don’t worry about being late to the party!

April Fools Puzzle Contest

See for how to play.

Every year, the libera IRC network has a puzzle contest starting on 04-01. (It’s not an april fools joke). It’s fun but quite difficult.

This year I wrote about a third of the puzzles. Give them a try, either alone or as a team! It will be open indefinitely, but social activity will die off in a week or two.

As of writing, no one has won (finished all the puzzles) just yet.
