It cycles through each of the Nordic countries as hosts; in Sweden it's called Knutpunkt, in Denmark Knudepunkt and in Finland Solmukohta. In English the translation would be meeting point or nodal point. Though the conference started out strictly as an event for larp (Live action role-playing), and it's 3 founders Erlend Eidsem Hansen, Hanne Grasmo and Margrete Raaum all were larporganisers of 360 degrees Nordic Style larps, Knutepunkt has since embraced role-playing games in a more general fashion. Today the conference still has an emphasis on larp, but programs devoted to educational larping, freeform, blackbox larps, gametheory and traditional tabletop role-playing are common.

Andragogy and Heutagogy are probably the answer.

Brain teasers and puzzles We have a range of brain teasers and puzzles. We usually give teams a selection of these and invite them to solve them as they rotate around a selection of activities during a day. The results are then used in the event of a tie, so the team's effort can be extremely important. Some team members are more suited to mental challenges, so this gives another angle to a day to ensure that as many team members as possible are appealed to.
