In addition to the tournament registration, we have a number of packages of solve-at-home puzzles. You can order this year's all-new meta suite, as well as the puzzles from past tournaments. The meta suite is a pay-what-you-want item, while past tournament puzzle packs are $5 each.
You can also join the solve-at-home division for just $10 if you can't make it to D.C. for the event; we'll send you this year's puzzles after the tournament and you can solve whenever you'd like. Send us your completed grids and solving times and we'll score your puzzles for you and place you on the Indie 500 leaderboard to see how you stacked up against the other in-person and at-home contestants!
We're doing things a little differently with the solve-at-home division this year: rather than score the puzzles as they trickle in, we'll collect them for just over a month and then score them all at once and crown a solve-at-home champion. You'll have until July 8, 2019 to get your grids and times in to us to be eligible to get your name in the standings (though the puzzles will still be available throughout the rest of the year).
And finally, we'll be selling Indie 500 "Going Around in Squares" t-shirts at the tournament! We'll have a limited number on hand in various sizes to sell for cash, but to be safe you can pre-order now and we'll hold one for you. We have sizes from small to 3XL in both men's/unisex and ladies' styles but we only have them in one color, as seen in the pictures below (design subject to change).
**Note that we are NOT able to mail out t-shirts; you must pick up at the tournament**
