Below is the registration form for the combined 2018 Puzzle Parley and AGPI Convention. It includes registration for the weekend events as well as pre-convention activities on Thursday, July 12. The theme for this year's event is "Games and Puzzles from Upstate New York". More information on all events can be found at Puzzle Parley 2018 or the AGPI site.

This registration does not include your hotel stay. You must make your own hotel reservation with the Doubletree Hilton, 585-475-1510 or tollfree 800-222-TREE. We have reserved a block of rooms at a special rate of $119 per room plus tax. This rate applies from Wednesday, July 11 through Sunday, July 15 if you are planning an extended vacation in the area. When you make your reservation, use the promo code AGP to receive our discount. While we have reserved a large number of rooms, you should register as soon as possible. The special rate expires June 11th but the hotel may fill up before then. NOTE: The best way to make your reservation and get the special rate is to call the hotel for booking. If you book online you may need other information. You can email us with any questions.

Each person must register separately. The form below provides information to help us to better facilitate the event. It will be used solely for those purposes and will not be shared. After completing the form, you will receive an automatically generated email and continue to payment options.

Tell Us A Little About Yourself:
One of the fun things to come out of combining both our events is meeting new people. At the Puzzle Parleys we always ask if you are a cutter, a collector, etc. We've added some new categories this year about Games and Mechanical 3D puzzles. This is also the space to add questions, comments, or requests about the program.
I am a member of the AGPI. If not, we suggest you check out http://www.gamesandpuzzles.org after registering to see what we're all about.
