Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do we need to compete in this event?

A: This event is completely online, so you will need a computer that is connected to the internet.

Q: How much does it cost?

A: $50/account. You can work together with multiple people on a single account or each get one to compete against each other. Each account will be presented with the same puzzles and challenges, but the solutions will be different for each account.

Q: Can multiple people work on it?

A: Yes, you can work together with friends and family on the event! You can either register once and all work together off a single account, or you can each register and have your separate accounts (each account will have slightly different answers). Please note that once a stage has been solved, you are unable to go back and solve it again. For example, if you solve a stage while one of your teammates is not around then they won’t be able to go back and solve it themselves because you will have progressed on to the next stage, but if you each have separate accounts they will be able to solve/complete stages at their own pace.

A: This is a challenging event: 9/10 for difficulty. There are many puzzles/challenges that are very involved. There is a hint system available if you get stuck on a puzzle/challenge.

Q: How long does the event take?

A: Expect to spend at least 3 hours throughout the event.

Q: Can kids participate?

A: This event is made with adults in mind. We would recommend 16 and older, but it depends on the individual; you would know best if you think your child is up for the challenge. There is no mature/scary content in the event.

A: Yes there are, but with a catch. You will have access to hints for each stage, but when you take a hint your score will be penalized for ranking purposes.

Q: What happens if I don’t finish before the end of the event?
