Chat Rooms

Please join the Teardown chat rooms:


Thanks to our amazing sponsors, we’re fortunate to offer all workshops at no extra cost to participants. However, due to material and space limitations, most workshops are capped to 30 or fewer participants. To sign up for a Teardown workshop, go to the registration tables on the day of that workshop and sign up on the physical sign-up sheet — first-come, first-served, until we reach capacity. If you don’t get a chance to sign up, you are welcome to wait stand-by before the workshop starts, and join if someone else doesn’t show up. If you sign up for a workshop, please be at the workshop on time, otherwise your spot may be given to someone else and you may not be eligible to sign up for other workshops.

Puzzle Hunt

We’re excited to add a puzzle hunt to this year’s Teardown. Here’s the basic structure:

  • You will create or join a team, decide on a team color, and designate a team captain.
  • Your team will be presented with a puzzle.
  • The solution to the puzzle is a location, at which you will find another puzzle.
  • Repeat.
  • The solution to the last puzzle is the finish line.
  • The first team to cross the finish line wins.
  • The hunt will take place after hours on all three days, Friday to Sunday.
  • You can participate in the hunt for any one or two days and still have fun.
  • Public transit and walking should suffice to get between locations.
  • Game Control will be there to help you with hints if you need them.
  • You may not interfere with Game Control or a puzzle such that other teams no longer have a chance to solve it, and you must obey all municipal, state, and federal laws. Everything else is fair game.
  • There is no prize, only glory.
