Bloomberg Bpuzzled Puzzle Competition
[CompSoc X Freud picture]
Bpuzzled is a 3 hour long competition created by Bloomberg engineers. Teams use problem
solving, creative thinking, and teamwork to solve challenging and intricate puzzles that
are logical in nature, similar to those found in escape rooms. Each puzzle is themed to a
location of a Bloomberg office from around the world; players race from place to place and
finally arrive at the final puzzle: New York or London! Top prizes are up for grabs! Join
as teams of 3-4, or find a team at the event.
When: Tuesday, 31 January 06.00pm - 09:30pm
Where: Lecture Hall L2, Maths Institute Andrew Wiles Building, Woodstock Rd, Oxford OX2

Check out OxWoCS!
Make sure to join OxWoCS (Oxford Women in CS), a society we're working closely with,
if you identify as a woman or woman-adjacent person in CS! They have a host of wonderful
events on, including talks, panels and socials. Computer Science is unfortunately a
subject with one of the biggest gender gaps in Oxford and worldwide, and addressing this
is at the core of OxWoCS.
