August 2015 - Semaphore
August's event was a bit more technological than most: It used ClueKeeper to help host the hunt. Players had the option to use ClueKeeper (in addition to our normal Game Control hosts) to track puzzle progress and get hints. This ClueKeeper hunt is still available, if you'd like to use it - Download the app and get the hunt using code PPAUG15. Alternatively, the puzzles as presented below can be used independent of the app.
All hints linked below are in ROT-13.
- Answer sheet
- International Society of Semaphorians (location puzzles led people to bars)
- Sema-one: Destination
- Sema-two: Name
- Sema-three: Octopuses
- Sema-four: Travels
- Meta-phore (meta puzzle)
- Sema-more (bonus puzzle)
All puzzles (except location and bonus) in one file.
