Puzzle Hunt 2010


Puzzle Hunt 2010 has been won by team Killer Chicken Bones, who retrieved the SCRT MSG at approximately 2:13pm on Saturday 24th April, beating a number of other teams who had already solved the puzzles and were looking for it around campus. Congratulations to Killer Chicken Bones! They have saved Kevin Rudd from certain death, at least for the next year or so.

Congratulations as well to all those who took part, and we hope to see you all back next year! The teams which came 2nd and 3rd will be notified by e-mail.

The solutions to all the puzzles will be uploaded shortly. For those who still wish to solve themselves, the answer checker is still working, but no more points will be awarded.

And for those who are still keen on solving puzzles, be sure to check out the CiSRA Puzzle Competition, which have opened for registration. We strongly recommend you check it out!

Please feel free to leave us any feedback/comments about this year's hunt. Until next year...

Bon appetit!
