GC to update day-of-game.
Teams are given a CD case with a booklet and an audio CD inside. Future revisions may include a flash drive with the audio that's on the CD.
There are two data streams on the cover that should be immediately apparent:
The words title and subtitle of the album's first letter spells out MUSIC PIRACY. This should key that acrostics are important later.
Around the edge is some ternary using periods for 0's, minuses for 1's, and plusses for 2's. With 'A' starting at 001 (..-) through 'Z' at 222 (+++), the message starting from the top left and going around clockwise is EACH SONG HAS ONE WORD WRONG USE THAT WORD
Inside the booklet are lyrics for each of the songs on the CD in the order they appear on the CD. Each music clip is a few seconds long, and teams will need to figure out which section of the lyrics they need to look at. While listening, they will also note that one word is covered up by static.
Taking the first letter of each word from the lyric sheet that is wrong, they will get the phrase SORT BY ARTIST, with the corresponding letters from the static-d out words being LHTGEOPNICFL. Sorting that by the artist name gives LENGTH OF CLIP, and getting that information in artist order, converting from seconds directly to a number (eg. 1 sec = A) yields the answer INFRINGEMENT
Include links to files on the Sharepoint, and any other intermediate data.
