    Default Hi there!

    Hi, my name is Peter. I'm 18, live in Kentucky, and I'm really brand new to all this puzzle solving/treasure hunting stuff, but it seems so cool! I've always loved thinking through problems, and I love a good puzzle, so I figured why not join and see what's going on. Some of my hobbies include juggling, penspinning, rubiks cube solving, reading, and occasionally writing. Hopefully I'll have a lot of fun and spend a lot of time here.. So hi!

    What the heck is penspinning?

    -Rusty

    It's not a place, it's a yearning. It's not a race, it's a journey.

    it's the art of pen manipulation. it's a form of contact juggling using pens.
    essentially, it's a big bucket of tricks you can do with pens, put together to make.. like whole communities based around it (upsb.info is the big one). I used to be WAY into penspinning, but I've hardly learned anything the past few months.

    anyway, here's a vid of some good psing

    Hey Rusty,

    Thanks for asking. I was wondering myself but forgot to put the question in my post.

    Looks cool.


    Pete I'm not sure if there are training missions or not.

    My philosophy is pick a hunt and do some on the job training.

    One starter puzzle that comes to mind is Tweleve's very own "The Case of the Missing Maps". It's not the most rudimentary puzzle, but it is still unsolved, and it is something we all can work on together.

    See this thread: http://www.tweleve.org/showthread.php?t=22867
