GC Notes:

GC to update day-of-game.

Presentation:

A conference room covered in warning signs with an open control box with wires in it. The projector has a black and white MISSION CONTROL screen on it, with a missile seemingly targeting Microsoft. There is also a black light flashlight hidden outside the room.

Walkthrough:

  1. Teams enter the room.

  2. Team see the following signs in the room (you can see copies of them here: https://microsoft.sharepoint.com/teams/MSInternGame/Shared Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx?viewpath=%2Fteams%2FMSInternGame%2FShared Documents%2FForms%2FAllItems.aspx&id=%2Fteams%2FMSInternGame%2FShared Documents%2FMSIG 2017%2FPuzzles%2FKaboomQ)

    1. Red Sign 1: DANGER | DO NOT CUT | ALARM WILL GO OFF

    2. Red Sign 2: AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY

    1. Blue Sign 1: IN CASE OF EMERGENCY | CUT BEFORE YELLOW

    2. Blue Sign 2: ANY ONE WILL DO

    1. Orange Sign 1: CUT 2 WIRES

    2. Orange Sign 2: WARNING: THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX

    3. Orange Sign 3: SHOOT FOR THE STARS

    4. Orange Sign 4: CUT AFTER YELLOW

    1. Yellow Sign 1: CAUTION: CUT JUST ONE

    2. Yellow Sign 2: CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE

  1. Team finds the Control Panel with wires that are red, blue, orange, and yellow.

  2. Team notices that the color of wires inside of the box correspond with the colors of the signs. Team realizes that the signs on the wall correspond with instructions on what to do with the corresponding wires inside the box.

  3. Based on the instructions in each color, the team logics what wires to cut and in what order (without breaking or cutting any of the red wires). This is the proper order:

    1. "Before orange", cut "any one" Blue wire

    2. Cut the ("just one") yellow wire that runs through the very center of the box ("center of the universe")

    3. "After Yellow", shine the blacklight (found "outside of the box") on the inside of the control panel. Notice that there are glowing stars painted next to some of the orange wires. Cut the two orange wires that have stars next to them ("shoot for the stars").

  1. If teams cut the wrong wire or run out of time, a failure video plays. If they cut the right wires, a success video plays.

  2. Either way, the answer appears after the video.

Hinting: Teams only have one chance to be successful or fail!

  • Make sure they've read all the signs and found the control panel
