Q: When will I know if I’ve won the Grand Prize?
A: Please join us at the After Party at the end of the season. At the party we will draw the Grand Prize winner who will be chosen at random from those who have finished the challenge. All those who have purchased a membership are welcome regardless of whether or not you completed the challenge. You DO NOT need to be present to win. Specific dates to your after party can be found by clicking your city then clicking Afterparty.
Q: How many people may be on a team?
A: There is no limit to group size, but you only receive 1 entry for a single membership, 2 entries for pairs and 4 entries for team memberships into the Grand Prize Pool. We recommend that groups sign up for their own puzzle pass as only 1 device may be logged in at a time per membership.
Q: I didn’t finish in one day. Do I still have a chance?
A: This challenge is not easy and some will not finish at all. We recommend you budget at least a full day and potentially a weekend if you struggle with solving the puzzles. As long as you finish by the end of the season you have a chance. So take your time and enjoy the adventure!
Q: Why is this so hard?
A: We have designed the puzzles to vary in type and to increase in difficulty as you progress. We’re looking for you to get that “Aha” moment when you come to the right conclusion moving forward. The last puzzle is very difficult and only those who are up to the challenge will be able to claim victory!
