What do you need to play?

A computer to display the puzzles. If you are in a virtual meeting, one team member should be the leader & screen share the puzzles to the other members to ensure you are all working on the same puzzle at the same time. This is the person who will type in the codes for the puzzles & control when you receive a hint.

Each player should have their smartphone (mobile phone) near by. It is possible to play without one but much more fun with one.

Annotating IS allowed (& often helpful).

Pencil & Paper IS allowed.

Unlimited time. You have unlimited time to play the game but you are welcome to add a time limit if you are playing this for an event with scheduled activities. If you are playing in multiple groups or people, compare times with other teams to see who finished with the fastest time.

Helpful Tips:

Time your progress. There are 10 puzzles. They are numbered to help you see where you are in the game. Check the time to help you decide when you should ask for a hint.

Hints. There are 3 or 4 hints on each puzzle. Each hint will only reveal a small clue at a time. If you still can't figure it out you can ask for the answer to be revealed. Practice asking for hints using the form below.

Pop-ups. When you submit a code you may get a pop up asking if you are sure you want to leave the page. This happens if you have used hints. YES! it's fine to leave the page.

If you are using screen sharing, allow annotating for all parcipants so you can all contribute. 

Share sound. If you are screen sharing, remember to click "share sound" button.

Refresh your browser window. If it looks like a picture did not fully load, hold the shift button down while you refresh the page.
