Puzzle Rojak was an online puzzle hunt run in late December, 2021. It was run by Puzzle Rojak, a team formed from CMU. The hunt had 32 puzzles and was expected to be similar to the UMD Puzzle Hunt in difficulty. Puzzle Rojak had a single main round, preceded by a prepuzzle and ending with five metapuzzles.

Plot[edit | edit source]

The story is themed after the Where's Waldo series of books. Waldo goes missing, and teams go off after him. After solving the prepuzzle, the main round unlocks - teams have to solve a puzzle trail left by the hiding expert Waldo in hope of finding him.

It turns out that Waldo went to the Fairground, In Town, and On the Beach scenes. After teams solve enough puzzles, the three scene metapuzzles unlock. However, Waldo is not to be found there.
