While we've done our best in trying to avoid spoiling puzzle solutions and hunt revelations, we can't guarantee that no spoilers will be seen.
To view an earlier version of the wiki without spoilers for a specific hunt, go to the Time Machine!
From This Month's Featured Article[edit | edit source]
The hunt was themed around a beta test of a new web platform, which ultimately resulted in the internet rolling back to the era of GeoCities and other build-it-yourself websites of the late 1990s and early 2000s. Fittingly, all of the rounds beyond the introductory round were designed to look like personal webpages from that era.
The hunt was won by 'ᦿ NEW TAI LUE WIRED MOUSE' (a team fielded by the larger ⛎ UNICODE EQUIVALENCE team), who finished in just under 9 hours.
Welcome to Puzzle Wiki[edit | edit source]
The goal of this wiki is to catalogue puzzles and puzzle hunts, in a form that is both accessible and informative!
If you'd like to know more about how a particular puzzle works, or the mechanics involved in its creation and execution, head to its page! There you'll find a walkthrough of that puzzle's intended solve path, accompanied by a list of mechanics and puzzle elements that are prominent in its construction.
Similarly, hunt pages will have a number of ways of breaking down the experience of both solving and creating the hunt, including state diagrams, plot summaries, and facts about the hunt's conception.
Alternatively, if you want to know about particular mechanics, and perhaps find examples of puzzles that use them, you can do that too! Head to a particular mechanic's page to learn more about any variations it may have, how it's implemented most commonly, and where you might find it out in the wild.
