CS50 Puzzle Day 2018

I am on Harvard’s CS50 (MOC edx programming class) mailing list. Every year they host a puzzle day. This year’s is this weekend (starts today, Friday). Would anyone be interested in working on it on Saturday? I have never done it before so I am not sure what to expect, but apparently these are logic based puzzles, not programming per se.

Here is the info from the email I got:

Hi all,

Hope this finds everyone well! Just a few announcements from CS50!
