party blog

Weíre celebrating our 35th Anniversary in July and we want you to join us! Weíve had lots of puzzle parties over the years but none like this. Here are a few reasons why you should call Stave today and RSVP.

Top 10 Reasons To Join Us


#10 Join the Club

How many people do you know who can say, ìYeah, Iíve been to a puzzle partyî? Join the fun and become a member of this select community.

#9 Meet New Friends

Have you ever wondered if there were others as obsessed with puzzles as you? Puzzlers are a unique group, passionate about their hobby. Youíll have the chance to meet other puzzle fanatics just like yourself. Hmm, sounds like a Stave Puzzlers Anonymous support group in the making!

#8 See Vermont

Vermont is one of the most beautiful places you could ever visit. In addition to puzzling, youíll be able to enjoy the beautiful countryside, kiss in a covered bridge* and enjoy a Ben & Jerryís ice cream… or two!

* Folklore has it that covered bridges were designed so couples could go into one and kiss without being seen. Pucker up! Thereís an authentic covered bridge just feet from the Woodstock Inn!

#7 Food and Dance

We promise you wonít go away hungry, thatís for sure. Youíll have plenty of time to wolf down a bite to eat between puzzles and you can be sure the Saturday night dinner will be fabulous. To top it all off, you can burn off the calories moving and grooving on the dance floor after dinner.

#6 Puzzle All You Want

Weíre bringing hundreds of puzzles to the Woodstock Inn so you can literally puzzle 24 hours a day. Puzzle quietly by yourself, with a group or compete in some zany games.

#5 See New Stuff

In addition to new Teaser puzzles, youíll get to see Steveís new Trick TroubleMaker puzzle, too! And weíll even give you a sneak peek at our new catalog!!

#4 Be A Crafter!

Have you ever wanted to try your hand at cutting a puzzle of your own? Hereís your chance!

#3 Lots Of Prizes

Youíll have plenty of chances to win prizes. Are you the fastest or the smartest? Did you travel the greatest distance? Have you been a Stave Puzzler for the longest? All these and more will walk away winners.

#2 Be A Doll

You could be the winner of the FINAL EDITION of the Dollhouse Village puzzle series. Yep, weíre giving away #100/#100 at our 35th Anniversary dinner on Saturday night. It could be yours, just for showing up!!!

#1 Meet The Gang

We may have been puzzling you for years or maybe weíre in the early stages of driving you crazy. When you come to our party youíll have the chance to tell your puzzle cutters just what you love about what they do. You can also meet the talented artists who create the artwork for our Teaser, Trick and Limited Edition design puzzles and youíll even have the chance to shake the hand of the man who started it all. Your Chief Tormentor, Steve Richardson, will be around all weekend to hear your screams of torture and delight!

The Real Reason To Come

Many of us have been cutting your puzzles for years (a lot of years!) and we want the opportunity to meet you. Give us a chance to tell you why we love what we do and say ìThanksî for giving us the opportunity to drive you crazy year after year. Itís a tough job but someone has to do it and we are so lucky we have the privilege. Please come spend the weekend with Stave and let us thank you properly. You wonít be sorry you did. We promise!

Canít wait to see you in July!
