The Post Hunt, an annual game played in downtown Washington, is the creation of Dave Barry, Gene Weingarten and Tom Shroder. Participants spend an afternoon solving strange/funny/ridiculous/brainteasing puzzles, and the winning team takes home a prize. To solve the Hunt, participants must have a copy of the print edition of The Washington Post Magazine, which contains maps and clues to the game. The artwork changes each year.
Join in this year for the fifth annual Post Hunt on Sunday, June 3 (see washingtonpost.com/posthunt for full details). /Illustration by Kagan McLeod
