Dimensions 2019: Leonardo's Codex

Saturday, December 14

Back for its eighth annual run, the Dimensions puzzle hunt at MoMath unites puzzles, mathematics, and problem-solving.  Dimensions is a thrilling, competitive, and addictive way to spend an evening with friends and family, tracking down clues and solving riddles.  Dimensions is meant for intrepid experts and bold novices alike, to be solved at the Museum over the course of a few hours, and it features word puzzles, logic puzzles, secret codes, and prizes.

Dimensions 2019 is designed by puzzle constructor Nathan Curtis, who constructed MoMath’s extremely popular Dimensions 2015: What the Tortoise Taught Us for the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  MoMath is honored to have Nathan Curtis back for Dimensions 2019: Leonardo’s Codex.

Leonardo da Vinci was a prolific creator and inspiring thinker.  His works range from artistic wonders to engineering marvels to breakthroughs in science and mathematics, many of which can be seen in his illustrations collected in the massive Codex Atlanticus.  This year's Dimensions puzzle hunt takes inspiration from this polymath of the Renaissance, with puzzles linking art, mathematics, and the humanities.  Come explore the Museum as you navigate these challenges to discover the secrets of the Codex.

If your team of co-workers, classmates, family members, pub trivia pals, or karaoke buddies is ready to take on the challenge, you can sign up for a unique evening of camaraderie, games, and fun!  MoMath recommends teams of 3-5 people.  Individual puzzlers are welcome.  If you don't have enough for a team, the Museum staff will help match you with others.  Players may bring in outside food and refreshments.  Mobile devices are allowed but not required.  There will be resources to help solvers who do not have access to the internet.  Please note that team slots are limited, and we encourage players to register early.

Dimensions is appropriate for adults, college students, and high school students.

Additional gameplay instructions will be provided during the orientation.
