The DP Puzzle Hunt was a puzzle hunt run in September 2020. The hunt had a relatively low difficulty and was targeted at teams that are new to puzzle hunts, but was open to puzzlers of all skill levels.
The hunt also featured a point ✨ scoring system, where teams which did not solve the final metapuzzle were ranked by thir number of points and tie-broken by the earliest last solve time. Points were earned by solving puzzles, and each puzzle was worth a certain number of points: 2 for round 1 feeders, 4 for round 2 feeders and 10 for metapuzzles.
Plot[edit | edit source]
