Teams are presented with a treasure chest with a set of plastic pieces in it of various colors and shapes.
Also included is a note:
As ye be learnin’ yer way around, one of the most important things ye need to know about is the proper storage and inventory of treasure. As any pirate should know, the proper method of treasure storage is the treasure chest, which can be used to store all manner of things. We’ve uncovered this here chest, which contains some sort of code. We believe that the precious metals and jewels contained in the chest are the key to the message, but have been unable to make any progress. Here’s hopin’ ye have better luck."
And a picture of various shapes (not colored, just outlines).
